This organization is supported by your local Houston lawyers!
This organization receives over 30, 000 phone calls each year.
They provide free in-person legal advice to nearly 5, 000 people each year.
Local Houston volunteer lawyers handle over 1, 400 cases each year - local Houston attorneys donate over $4million worth of their time on these pro bono cases!

6 million Texans qualify for legal aid - including over 500, 000 in Houston alone but there ar less than 90, 000 lawyers statewide! The need for free legal services exceed the attorneys available to provide assistance!

People bad-mouth greedy attorneys--but local Houston attorneys try to help indigent Harris County residents by financially supporting Houston Volunteer Lawyers & by providing legal services for free. The legal community in Houston gives back to the Houston community in many ways -- check out the Houston Bar Association website for some of the things the HBA does -- coat drives in the winter, building houses for Habitat for Humanity, etc.
