Volunteer

Please note that many legal services providers are currently limiting services due to COVID-19. Most physical offices are closed to the public, but some are still seeking volunteers to provide remote services. Please contact them for more information.

Many MLSC grantees welcome the assistance of volunteer attorneys, paralegals and others as they provide legal services across the state. Some grantees also have reduced fee opportunities for attorneys.

Judicare Family Law Project – Paid Opportunities for Attorneys

The Judicare Family Law Project, a partnership between MLSC and the Administrative Office of the Courts, provides payment to private lawyers to serve low-income Marylanders who could not otherwise afford representation in contested family law cases. Case types include custody, divorce and other contested family law matters.

Attorneys receive $100 per hour for up to 30 hours per case. They also receive support of litigation expenses, training and mentoring support, all while making a difference for a low-income family in need.

How to Participate: Judicare is available throughout Maryland. Contact an organization listed below that is administering Judicare in your jurisdiction. Case types and participation requirements may vary with each organization.
