Cowlitz Wahkiakum Legal Aid can use volunteers in several areas.
First and foremost is for attorneys willing to provide advice conferences and clinics. These are generally one-time events which you may provide guidance and advice to a litigant representing themselves.
Second, we are always looking for attorneys who are willing to provide limited or full represetation of litigants in their cases. This may consist of simply a motion hearing or a full handling of a complcated lawsuit. The degree to which the attorney commits is soley up to them. All volunteer time is greatly appreciated both by our program as well as the clients.
We also have need for attorneys and others to volunteer website content, newsletter articles, and general assistance with the program. We are often in need of office suppllies and equipment. All donations in cash or in kind are fully tax deductible. We are a 501(c)3 qualified program with the IRS.
We occasionally host CLE programs and need qualified presenters. You can earn CLE credit for time spent in those endeavors.
We also have an active and involved Board of Directors. We are always looking for involved community members who may be willing to serve in that capacity. Please contact us if you interested in such a position and we will forward you an application to be considered by the nominating committee.
