Volunteer Lawyers Program

What is the Volunteers Lawyers Program?

The Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP) is a legal assistance program of the Spokane County Bar Association. The VLP recruits volunteer attorneys to provide free legal counsel and representation in civil matters (non-criminal) to low-income individuals with cases in Spokane and Lincoln Counties. It is funded primarily by a grant from the Legal Foundation of Washington and contributions from local attorneys.

Mission Statement
