Pro Bono Legal Services Provided Through The Ventura County Bar Association’s Award-Winning Volunteer Lawyer Services Program
The VCBA/VLSP provides direct and comprehensive services to low-income and indigent families and individuals who reside in the state of California and have cases pending before the Ventura County Courts.
The objective of the program is to provide access to justice for families and individuals who simply cannot afford an attorney, and whose monthly gross income is at state poverty level. People who qualify for our services are most often the same people who qualify for a fee waiver at the court.
The target population has always been low income and indigent families and individuals experiencing a legal issue, and who cannot afford a lawyer to assist them. VLSP provides legal services in conservatorship, consumer law, family law, guardianship, landlord/tenant law and personal injury defense cases, as well as other general civil matters. *Please note pro bono services are not guaranteed even if you qualify.
Pro bono does not help with dependency, bankruptcy, foreclosure, child support or criminal cases.
