Pro Bono Services

Pro Bono Services Mission

The King County Bar Association's Pro Bono Services program promotes social justice by establishing and managing volunteer-based, client-focused legal services programs and providing 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 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, vacate criminal records, provide advice and referrals and more.
