Community Legal Clinics
Community organizations and churches host CVLS legal clinics around the city. Volunteers meet with potential clients for a few hours after work or on a weekend every few months, and provide follow up services as necessary. Each clinic is staffed by a veteran volunteer, aided by CVLS’ full-time clinic coordinator.
Some of CVLS’ clinics are staffed exclusively by attorneys and paralegals from one law firm. Firms that “adopt” clinics decide the types of cases their attorneys will handle and set their own schedules. Their attorneys get excellent, wide-ranging experience and clients get expert legal assistance. It’s a win-win for everyone.
