Pro Bono Services Mission
The King County Bar Association Pro Bono Services promote social justice by establishing and managing volunteer-based, client-focused legal services programs and provides services on an equal and non-discriminatory basis for low income King County residents who would not otherwise receive legal assistance.
In Washington State more than 70% of low-income households experience at least one civil legal problem annually. Of these, more than three quarters or 76% of households face a civil legal problem without an attorney.1 Pro Bono Services volunteers provide free legal services valued at over $7 million annually by assisting clients to keep their housing, obtain marriage dissolutions in abusive situations, seek third party custody of children, file for bankruptcy, vacate criminal records, and more.
You can support the King County Bar Association's work with pro bono clients.
