Remote Opportunity for Family Law Attorneys in Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Project - SeniorLAW Center

  • SeniorLaw Center

The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren (GRG) Project needs pro bono volunteer attorneys with family law experience for limited representation opportunities. SeniorLAW Center operates the PA SeniorLAW HelpLine, which receives calls from around the state on a variety of matters and seeks volunteers to assist with callers from outside of Philadelphia County. These calls would be pre-screened via SeniorLAW Center's intake process before they are sent to a pro bono attorney for services.

The pre-screening process will identify the caller's name, contact information, and a brief background on their legal question. This information would be provided to the volunteer attorney to call the client and schedule a time to speak. Once the attorney calls the client, they would be tasked with either offering advice and counseling or brief services. An example of a brief service could be instructing a litigant how to proceed pro se.

To participate, volunteers must complete a 90-minute video training.
