The Pro Bono Services Mission
The mission of KCBA's Pro Bono Services is to promote social justice by ensuring equal and non-discriminatory access to our services for all individuals. We provide volunteer-based, client-focused legal services to primarily low-income residents of King County who would not otherwise receive legal assistance.
The King County Bar Association Pro Bono Services programs connect low income King County residents with a network of volunteers who provide over $7.8 million in free legal services each year.
In Washington State, 88% of low income households face a civil legal problem without an attorney. PBS volunteers assist pro bono 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.
