Family Law - Pro Se Assistance Project (PROSAP)
Pro Se Assistance Project (PROSAP). Volunteer family law attorneys provide limited assistance to clients requiring discrete family law legal advice or document review. Attorneys are scheduled to meet with three clients, each for a 45-minute appointment. Clinics are held from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Legal Aid. Attorneys respond to discrete family law questions and/or review documents prepared by unrepresented litigants. Attorneys are NOT expected to provide ongoing representation to clients and clients sign a retainer agreement detailing the limited scope of the attorney-client relationship. Volunteer attorneys must have family law experience to volunteer for this project. For more information contact Danielle Ramos at (503) 224-4086 or e-mail email@example.com.

PROSAP Facilitation Clinic. Attorneys with little (or no) family law experience can volunteer and help clients complete their pro se court documents. Once the paperwork is completed, clients may attend the PROSAP clinic to meet with an experienced family law attorney. Facilitation clinics take place on Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 2 – 4:00 p.m. at Legal Aid. For more information contact Danielle Ramos 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.
