Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program
The mission of the Madison County Volunteer Lawyers Program (MCVLP) is to promote equal access to justice through the delivery of pro bono legal services to low-income citizens in Madison County and to promote volunteerism among Madison County attorneys.
The MCVLP works closely with the bar association to provide pro bono legal assistance to indigent clients in civil matters related to basic needs such as housing, garnishments, family issues, and consumer matters. About 315 local attorneys are involved in the program. The MCVLP hosts monthly attorney help desks and family law office days as well as other clinics throughout the year. The MCVLP also provides training, continuing legal education, and support to volunteers.
