Today the program is coordinated in partnership with the Oregon Law Center, an independent nonprofit organization that provides staff assistance and Spanish translation services to our volunteer attorneys. Many of these cases deal with immigration as a large portion of our pro bono clients are undocumented. Our attorneys provide substantial legal assistance to help more than 100 pro bono clients per year get their homes back, address automobile obligations and collections issues, and solve problems relating to individual civil rights. We are proud to provide excellent legal services to this deserving client base.
