The Maine Volunteer Lawyers Project is a legal aid organization that provides free legal information, assistance, and representation to Mainers with low incomes facing civil legal issues.
VLP's legal services are provided entirely by community and attorney volunteers supported and supervised by a small staff.
“Pro Bono lawyers help ensure that every person in Maine has equal access to justice under the law. They provide representation for people who cannot afford it otherwise, especially when it is necessary to protect a vulnerable person’s livelihood, health or family. This is part of safeguarding our civil society, which is perhaps a lawyer’s most important professional responisbility.”
