Pro Bono Services (PBS) Committees

PBS Committee

The PBS Committee is comprised of Pro Bono Services volunteers. The KCBA Pro Bono Services network consists of 6 programs that help low- income people of King County with a variety of essential legal issues. Last year, KCBA’s Pro Bono Services programs worked with 1,500 volunteer attorneys, paralegals, and students to provide 10,972 clients with legal assistance. The estimated value of these services is $7.28 million. The PBS Department provides civil legal aid, including direct representation, assistance for pro se litigants, brief services, and advice and counsel for low-income people. PBS also provides mentoring and training for attorneys willing to take cases in specific areas. 

The goal of the PBS Committee this year is to support the PBS programs by having committee members participate in an action team. Below are examples of the current action teams:

        Public Relations

        Volunteer Recognition

        Volunteer Survey

The Committee meets monthly at the KCBA office from October through June (except for December) on the fourth Tuesday of each month. If you are interested in joining the PBS Committee, please e-mail

Neighborhood Legal Clinics Committee

The Neighborhood Legal Clinics program began in 1974 when three young and energetic attorneys opened the first clinic in the Capitol Hill Neighborhood in Seattle. Thanks to many amazing volunteers, and the support of a dedicated Committee, the program has grown to 37 clinics utilizing over 600 volunteer attorneys and clinic assistants. With just a small amount of staff support, the program relies on the Committee to assist with strategic planning, policy decisions, and special projects focused on enhancing existing services.

The NLC Committee comprises current NLC volunteers and other members of the community who contribute their various skills and expertise to strengthen this vibrant and growing program. If you are interested in joining the NLC Committee please contact
