How to Request a Volunteer Attorney (Pro Bono)

If you are a pro se litigant and seek the assistance of an attorney, you may request to participate in the Court’s volunteer attorney program by submitting a request directed to the Judge in your case. Keep in mind that there is no entitlement to the appointment of counsel. But the Court in its discretion may direct that your case be placed on a list of available cases for consideration by volunteer attorneys.
