Important Announcement Regarding COVID-19:
Updated 06/08/2020

In order to ensure the safety of our volunteers, clients, and the community through the COVID-19 pandemic, we are suspending in-person clinics, classes, and in-person on-boarding with VLP clients. In-person applicants may fill out and submit applications at the Spokane County Bar Association office. Advice clinics already scheduled and newly scheduled will be converted to phone sessions. The VLP is continuing to process applications via CLEAR and our website. Please contact the VLP with any questions. 

The VLP is accepting applications for tenants facing eviction. Click on the "Apply" tab to submit your application.

Keep tabs on the changes to the WA courts due to COVID-19 at courts.wa.gov.

Thank you for your patience, and stay well!

Chris Zentz

Despite limited experience with family law, Chris wanted to help meet the growing need for lawyers to assist community members in these situations. He found that volunteering with the VLP allowed him the opportunity to offer meaningful support to those who need it most.

In just a few months Chris has been able to assist several VLP clients over the telephone, giving them critical legal advice, answering questions, and helping them navigate their paperwork.
