You are now on our Meetup site. This is our working site where you may sign up for projects and trainings.

We are a group of attorneys, mostly moms, who want to volunteer in our profession, but in a way that does not interfere with our family/work life. We now have men, retirees, & full-time attorneys who find our model workable for them.

Our projects are:

  • finite and many choices that won't hang over your head;
  • team based, so if there's an important client call or (gulp) sick kid, no worries;
  • geographically sensitive for both training sessions and projects; and
  • are never outside of school hours (or are really flexible).

There is no ongoing commitment (obviously you have to be responsible once you sign up). You'll love getting to know some like-minded neighbors while doing some good.

Details on our past projects and articles are at pro-bono-network.org

(We do not represent individuals.  if you are looking for pro bono representation please go to http://www.illinoislegalaid.org/)

 

If you are not an attorney, but would like to help in some way, please send a message to us through meetup.  We have loved the offers for translation, office space, and general consulting.  Thank you to our community for all your generosity.  (Believe me, you don't want all the emails the attorneys are getting!)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
