Pro Bono Volunteer Lawyers Program
What is the Pro Bono Volunteer Lawyers Program?
The Pro Bono & Volunteer Lawyers Program will try to match a client in need with an attorney who is willing to help at no cost. The volunteer lawyer will offer advice, legal services and representation to people who qualify.
Who is qualified to receive help?
Qualification for the program is based on need and the availability of a volunteer attorney to help you. The lawyers in this program are only able to help with limited civil matters. Our program is not able to assist with criminal charges.
What if I don't qualify?

What if I need help right now?
If there are threats of danger or violence to you or your children, contact the Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Viiolence and Sexual Assault.
Because this is a volunteer program, it may take several months before an attorney is available to help you. Please be patient.
How do I apply?
Contact the Wyoming State Bar PBVLP Coordinator to see if there are attorneys available for your situation. If there are, an application will be sent to you (or you may complete it online). Please do not submit an application until you have contacted the program coordinator.
What happens next?
After your completed application is received, you will be contacted by the program coordinator. If you qualify for the program, a volunteer attorney will be assigned to you. This program is small, and attorney participation may be limited. We cannot guarantee you will be matched with an attorney even if you qualify for the program. The PBVLP does not represent clients; it only facilitates matching potential clients with volunteer lawyers.
To hire a lawyer, visit the Lawyer Referral Service.
