Who We Are
The Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP) is a nonprofit legal assistance program of the Spokane County Bar Association (SCBA). The VLP strives to help low-income community members (within 200% of the FPL) help themselves with civil legal matters by providing legal education through clinics, classes, and in-court volunteers. The VLP's primary focus is Family Law, but the program also assists with certain housing, consumer, and bankruptcy issues. The VLP operates out of Spokane county, but does its best to help Pend Oreille, Ferry, Stevens, Adams, Grant, Lincoln, and Whitman counties. The VLP is supported by the Legal Foundation of Washington (LFW), Office of Civil Legal Aid (OCLA), SCBA members, and members of the community - like you!
The VLP's mission is to connect low-income community members needing legal services to legal education and to pro bono professionals.
