Volunteer Lawyer Program
The core service of FBLC, our Volunteer Lawyer Program will match qualified applicants with volunteer attorneys willing to handle cases on a pro bono basis. FBLC volunteers handle most types of civil cases, including family law, consumer issues, landlord/tenant, estate planning, probate and guardianship. We do not handle immigration issues, but work closely with other organizations who accept referrals of these types of cases. Our funding sources restrict FBLC from handling fee generating lawsuits, criminal proceedings and traffic proceedings. The types of cases that will be matched to volunteer lawyers include:
Consumer Law
    * Contract Disputes
    * Landlord/Tenant Disputes
    * Deceptive Trade Practices Disputes
Family Law
    * Divorce
    * Adoption
    * Change of Name
Real Property
    * Resolving Title Problems
    * Transfers of Title

    * Powers of Attorney
    * Medical Powers of Attorney
    * Directives to Physicians
    * Probate of Simple Wills
