Legal aid services need your help. Business Counsel for Legal Aid matches business law attorney volunteers with legal aid services in need of advice and counsel regarding business law matters.
Legal aid attorneys focus their areas of expertise in matters commonly known as “poverty law.” As poverty law practitioners, they often lack the business expertise necessary to protect their interests as companies employing workers, owning intellectual property, and generally maintaining and growing their going concerns. As business lawyers, you can help. Through helping legal aid, you help not just the legal aid companies but help to ensure their viability to in turn help impoverished Texans for years to come.
How It Works
When a legal aid corporation requires help with a business law matter, staff at Texas Legal Services Center will create a summary of the issue and forward it to a volunteer attorney who may have the expertise to help. The attorney can choose to accept or decline helping with any particular matter. Once a match is made, TLSC will notify the legal aid company and provide it with the contact information.
