Located in Vancouver, Washington, Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Program makes legal services and counsel accessible to low-income individuals and marginalized communities in Clark County. People who cannot afford an attorney are appointed a public defender in a criminal matter. However, public defenders are not appointed to low-income individuals for civil legal issues, such as divorce, custody or evictions. This creates a gap of justice for those required to navigate civil legal issues but cannot afford a lawyer. Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Program ensures equitable access to justice for all by empowering marginalized communities to utilize the justice system in an effective manner.
They offer many programs and services ranging from debt defense to evictions. Some of the popular services offered include:
Many other services are provided in addition to the ones listed above. Attorneys and non-attorney volunteers are welcomed, and they also encourage the greater community to advocate for access to justice for all. With over 1,200 client visits in 2020 alone, community assistance is necessary for equitable justice. Resources, such as advice, contacts and services can be found on their website at ccvlp.org.
Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Program relies on donations to grow and maintain. During the month of July, Davidson & Associates is supporting Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Program with our Referral Rewards Program, which means that each time we receive a referral for a free, no obligation insurance quote, we will donate $25 to help provide more opportunities to foster justice for low-income and marginalized individuals.
