"The time and expertise the VLP volunteers gave showed me they value me as a person. Now I have the self-confidence to stand up for myself when legal problems arise. Thank you for your help!"
- Shirley, a former VLP client

We provide free information, brief assistance and pro bono legal representation in civil legal matters to qualifying clients. Our volunteers give Mainers in need the tools and know-how to be equal participants in our legal system.
