VOLUNTEER

During the CLIMB pilot program, volunteer lawyers from Moore & Van Allen and Robinson Bradshaw will coordinate the administration of the program and provide volunteer legal services. The goal is to engage a broad range of lawyers and legal employers to join this initiative, motivated to serve those in the Charlotte community who cannot afford access to the legal system on their own.

SCOPE OF PRO BONO ATTORNEY SERVICES

CLIMB is seeking attorneys to provide pro bono legal advice to pre-screened clients in the following areas:

  • Bankruptcy

  • Employment matters

  • Entity formation

  • Finance

  • Contracts

  • Intellectual property

  • Leases

  • Licensures

  • Tax issues

  • Nonprofit matters

 

CLIMB will screen potential clients and connect matters to what we hope will be a robust volunteer base. Volunteer attorneys will handle cases independently and/or work with a team of volunteer attorneys depending on the agreed upon legal services provided.

 

VOLUNTEER INVESTMENT

CLIMB anticipates volunteer attorneys will invest anywhere from two to 15 hours on each assigned case.
