Volunteer Legal Services Hawaii is a non-profit legal service organization, established in 1981, that provides legal assistance to the community through education, legal advice clinics, brief services, and referrals to pro bono attorneys for direct representation.

Volunteer Legal partners with volunteer attorneys to provide services to those who qualify based on income and legal issue.  Volunteer attorneys are the backbone of the organization, without whom access to justice could not be achieved in Hawaii.

Volunteer Legal understands that not everyone can afford an attorney, but may be able to help themselves resolve legal issues if they are given the right information, professional support, and assistance.  Volunteer Legal staff and its volunteers assist with civil legal problems through services designed to help people handle legal problems on their own.  

Volunteer Legal’s services are limited to the following types of cases: Divorce; Custody issues including visitation and child support; Guardianship for minors; Adoption; Residential disputes between landlord and tenants; Consumer Debt Collections; Chapter 7 Bankruptcy; Basic Estate Planning; Adult Guardianship; and Veterans Benefits.

If you have a civil legal issue and need help, please call our Intake Line at (808) 528-7046.  You may also walk-in at our Honolulu office Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.  We are located at 545 Queen Street, Suite 100, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813.  We are closed on Federal and State holidays.
