The Pro Bono Services Mission
The King County Bar Association's Pro Bono Services programs promote social justice by ensuring equal and non-discriminatory access to legal services and by providing volunteer-based, client-focused legal help for low income King County residents who would not otherwise receive legal assistance.
In Washington State, 88% of low income households face a civil legal problem without an attorney every year. Pro Bono Services volunteers provide over $7.8 million in free legal services 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.
