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 including:

  • Accepting pro bono case referrals
  • Co-counseling with GBLA attorneys
  • Assisting with legal research and writing
  • Making court appearances
  • Offering community workshops in their areas of expertise

In addition to helping address the legal needs of Kern County’s most vulnerable residents, volunteers can develop contacts, gain experience in litigation, and recover fees from the opposing party when authorized by statute.
