The Northern Virginia Pro Bono Law Center is a local program that assists individual residents of Fairfax County, as well as Northern Virginia nonprofits. The intake for most of our programs is done through our partners and we should not be contacted directly for legal help.
Individuals looking for assistance:
If you are looking for pro bono legal assistance, contact us if:
- You live in Fairfax County
- You are low-income (under 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines)
- You have a contested family law issue and you already contacted Legal Services of Northern Virginia (LSNV)
If you live in Northern Virginia, are low income, and have a civil legal issue (no traffic or criminal), you may try our local legal aid, Legal Services of Northern Virginia at 703-778-6800.
If you live outside of the Northern Virginia area, you can find your local legal aid by going to this link or by visiting the American Bar Association's Directory of Pro Bono Programs.
Please do not contact us unless you meet these requirements. If you live in Fairfax County, are low-income, have a contested family law matter, and have already contacted LSNV, you may contact our dedicated line for contested family law cases at 703-246-2952 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
