The Greater Dayton Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) is a pro bono program located at the Dayton Bar Association and supported by Legal Aid of Western Ohio. We serve as a complement to Legal Aid by registering private attorneys to provide pro bono legal services in civil case areas. The VLP does no criminal work.
The VLP provides innovative opportunities for private attorneys to perform pro bono civil legal services to benefit persons with limited financial resources. When an attorney or other legal professional desires to fulfill his or her personal or professional calling or duty to contribute service to others, then VLP provides an effective bridge between that drive to serve and individuals with limited economic resources, as well as other non-profits with similar missions, needing help for civil legal issues. In serving as the preferred bridge for attorneys and other legal professionals to provide community and professional service, VLP provides them with innovative and rewarding opportunities that optimize their time and unique talents to use their civic influence to assure access to justice.
More information about VLP, including opportunities to volunteer at “Ask an Attorney” Clinics; batch clinics for divorce, bankruptcy and other issues; senior will house calls; and one-on-one representation can be found at our website, http://www.gdvlp.org
