National Pro Bono Week

It’s National Pro Bono Week and we want to thank all of our pro bono volunteers who help us serve the community! Without you, we would not be able to reach as many people as we do.

In 2015, pro bono volunteers contributed 665 hours to expand and bring legal aid to those who would not have access to it. Our volunteers mainly contributed time at our Community Legal Outreach Clinics at Inglis House and Associated Service for the Blind.

Since 2005, LCD attorneys and attorneys from our partner firms meet at both sites for half a day to provide this crucial legal service to our clients.
CLOCs, in addition to home visits are yet another way that we bring inclusion to people with disabilities in the Philadelphia area.

Our most recent CLOC was on September 22 at Inglis House. Thank you to Alexander Nassar, associate at Dilworth Paxson LLP, for serving as point person at this clinic. Photos from the clinic can be found below.
