Volunteer Attorney Program

Application Form

GBLA and the Kern County Bar Association invite local attorneys and paralegals to assist low-income Kern County residents through the Volunteer Attorney Program. Legal professionals can serve in a variety of ways ranging from accepting pro bono case referrals, co-counseling with GBLA attorneys, assisting with legal research and writing to offering community workshops in their areas of expertise. In addition to helping address the legal needs of Kern County’s most vulnerable residents, Program volunteers can develop contacts, gain experience in litigation and new fields of law, and recover fees from the opposing party when authorized by statute.
