Our Pro Bono Community

Our phenomenal team of pro bono partners and volunteers allows Family Legal Care to serve people far and wide.


Innovative Virtual Platform

We employ user-friendly technology to enable pro bono attorneys and clients to meet over video and share documents in real time.

Make an Impact through Pro Bono

  • Make a significant impact from your home or office at times that are convenient for you.
  • Interact face-to-face with clients, who in turn don’t have to take off from work or arrange childcare and transportation—especially critical for homebound, disabled and rural parents.
  • Make a real difference in the lives of parents and caregivers with only a one-hour consultation though limited scope representation.
  • Receive comprehensive Family Law training while earning CLE credits and get live support from our Staff Attorneys during consultations.

Family Legal Care provided a lot of training that I felt really turned me into a lawyer who’s qualified to provide this sort of pro bono work, which is exhilarating. I’m not just helping corporations; I’m helping real people who are facing real family issues.

This program has offered a legal lifeline for Family Court litigants throughout New York State who are homebound or disabled, live in rural areas or have transportation or childcare issues. During the Covid-19 pandemic, this virtual pro bono platform is a critical tool in expanding pro bono resources to assist Family Court litigants statewide.
