Jewish Legal Services – Volunteer
Contribute your time and skills to help someone needing legal assistance.
For over twenty years, Jewish Legal Services (JLS) has provided free legal advice and counseling
to low-income members of the Baltimore community.
Make a difference at the JLS Monthly Clinic…
At monthly walk-in clinics, volunteer lawyers offer one-on-one brief consultation on a variety of legal issues, including trusts and estates, landlord-tenant, bankruptcy, and family law.
Even if you can only staff one clinic per year, your contribution makes a difference.

…or volunteer to take a Pro bono case
If you are unable to participate in the clinics, consider accepting case referrals on a pro bono or reduced fee basis.
For some current JCS clients, a brief consultation may not be sufficient. They require additional
follow-up or representation by an attorney. Generally, these cases do not require a tremendous time commitment.

History of Jewish Legal Services
Jewish Legal Services was created in 1997 by a small group of Jewish attorneys with a shared vision of making pro bono legal services available to those in need. Community leaders and organizations, including The Associated and the Children of Harvey & Lyn Meyerhoff Philanthropic Fund, lent their
support and expertise to help establish Jewish Legal Services.
Since its inception, Jewish Legal Services has served more than 2,000 members of the Baltimore Jewish community. The support and dedication of attorneys who volunteer their time has increased access to justice for many community members who would otherwise be unable to afford representation.
