Senior Law Project - Multnomah County
The Senior Law Project consists of 25 monthly legal clinics held at nine senior center locations in Multnomah County. Volunteer lawyers meet with clients who are 60 or over (or who are married to someone 60 or over). The lawyers provide 30-minute consultations, on any civil legal issues, for up to six clients per clinic. All clients 60 or over are eligible for a free 30-minute consultation, regardless of their income. SLP volunteers provide continuing pro bono services for only those clients who meet LASO’s financial eligibility requirements. LASO coordinates a monthly Elder Law Discussion Group to provide information and support. For more information contact Jill Mallery at (503) 224-4086 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
