  Pro Bono Options 

[Contact our PAI Coordinator in the LANC-Wilson Office.] 
Legal Aid of North Carolina (LANC) actively recruits, trains, mentors, and co-counsels with volunteer (pro bono) attorneys to help them handle the many complex and changing legal issues unique to the practice of civil poverty law. Our PAI ("Private Attorney Involvement") Program helps to ensure access to justice for low-income families and further leverages the dollars that are invested in LANC.  Typically, pro bono attorneys are needed either for their special expertise and/or to help us with our large case load.

To volunteer pro bono service in the counties served by the LANC-Pittsboro Office, contact our PAI ("Private Attorney Involvement") coordinator.
