How to Get Help
Our Pro Bono Clearinghouse works with organizations that address the needs of underserved communities and matches them with pro bono attorneys at private law firms to service the organizations’ legal needs. Your nonprofit or community based organization may be eligible for free legal assistance.
Clearinghouse attorneys provide free legal assistance in virtually every area of the law, including:
- Incorporation & tax exempt status
- Governance questions
- Contracts and real estate disputes
- Lease negotiations
- Employment manuals
- Intellectual property concerns
If you are seeking legal assistance to incorporate and/or obtain tax-exempt status for a new non-profit, please click here.
If you are seeking legal assistance of any type on behalf of an existing non-profit, please click here.
It generally takes between two to four weeks to place your matter with a firm. We try to place time-sensitive legal matters on an expedited basis. Please note that we are not able to place every matter that we screen.
