Salem Pro Bono Project. The Salem LASO office provides pro bono opportunities for volunteer attorneys. Pro bono opportunities available range from brief advice to accepting cases for full representation.

Salem Bankruptcy Clinic. The Oregon State Bar Debtor-Creditor Section and LASO sponsor this project. The project consists of two components, a bankruptcy class and a legal clinic during which volunteer attorneys each meet with clients for 30-minute appointments.  Anyone may attend the 45-minute class, taught by a member of the bankruptcy bar or bench.  Volunteer attorneys meet with clients, help them assess whether bankruptcy is appropriate, and if so, provide ongoing representation.  For more information contact Angelica Vega at (503) 581-5265 or e-mail angelica.vega@lasoregon.org.  Click here for project flyer.

 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Statewide Volunteer Opportunities:

ProBonoOregon Listserv:  If you don't see a case or a project that interests you on ProBonoOregon web pages, legal services offices around the state also post pro bono cases to the ProBonoOregon listserv each week. An attorney who is interested in accepting a pro bono opportunity contacts the listing office for full case information. This project allows pro bono attorneys to take a pro bono case when it fits best with their schedule.  You must sign-up for the Oregon Advocates website to join the listserv.  If not a member, click here.  Once signed up as a member, suscribe as a listserv user here
