The Military Pro Bono Project is looking for our assistance to provide pro bono representation to service members in family law matters. The Project helps those who are sacrificing greatly for their country by moving pro bono referrals straight from military law offices to willing-and-able private sector lawyer volunteers throughout the country. Extended American military missions overseas have generated unprecedented civil-law challenges for service members, many of whom have left family, home, and job for years at a time to serve their country in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations.
resources available to you on line to provide assistance in your
representation of the military personnel. There is also no
continuing obligation once you provide the agreed upon
representation. You can also call for more information and then
decide not to take the case. Cases currently in need of
pro bono assistance are available on the Project's website, www.militaryprobono.org.
All the cases are screened by a supervising military attorney and then by Jason Vail, Project Director, Military Pro Bono Project the head of the Military Project with the ABA. You may contact Jason directly at 312.988.5783 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
