For nearly 30 years, the Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has been providing critical civil legal services to the neediest residents of Brooklyn, harnessing the powerful pro bono dedication of the private bar to ensure equal access to justice.
But we cannot do it alone.
This is a critical time to give generously to the VLP. Today’s harsh economic realities disproportionately affect the people the VLP serves, placing an enormous strain on our ongoing programs in family law, consumer law, foreclosure and elder law. Each VLP program has developed based on essential legal needs in our community, and we are continually assessing our programs according to those needs. Please make your secure, tax-deductible donation today. On behalf of the Board of Directors, the VLP staff and the people we serve, thank you for your generous support.
