Volunteer Legal Services Hawaii is the only organization in the state whose sole mission is to serve Hawaii’s low income community through volunteer attorneys. Volunteer Legal’s pool of pro bono attorneys provide legal services in a wide range of civil matters, including divorces, paternities, custodies, child support, guardianships, adoptions, powers of attorney, wills, healthcare directives, employment, landlord-tenant cases, collections, Chapter 7 bankruptcies, general immigration matters, and temporary restraining orders.
Volunteer Legal assists individuals and families who meet low-income guidelines and have a legal issue that the organization handles. Applicants for services must call the Intake Line at 528-7046. During the Intake process, our staff will determine your financial eligibility and the nature of your legal problem. They may request that you provide documents confirming your income and assets. If you do qualify for services, the staff will reserve a space at a Neighborhood Legal Clinic.
