D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center


The Pro Bono Center was established in 1988 to help people in the District of Columbia who could not afford a lawyer. We have become the largest provider of pro bono legal assistance offering the widest range of services in the District of Columbia. Each year, the Pro Bono Center recruits, trains and supports volunteer lawyers to provide almost 20,000 individuals, nonprofit organizations and small businesses with free legal information, resources, brief advice and/or full representation.  


Through our neighborhood clinics, court-based resource centers, and direct referral projects, the Pro Bono Center and our volunteers help people living in poverty to stay in their homes, rebuild their families and access vital public benefits to secure basic necessities. To strengthen the safety-net of service providers low income residents rely on for food, shelter, education and job training, we provide pro bono counsel and legal training for nonprofit organizations. We also assist small businesses that create jobs and contribute to the economy in struggling neighborhoods.
