Call for Volunteers

Community Legal Aid (CLA) is seeking volunteer lawyers from eastern Massachusetts who would be able to provide pro bono legal assistance in simple Chapter 7 cases for debtors living in Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Counties (Springfield Federal Court) or Berkshire County (Pittsfield Federal Court).  CLA has an active Volunteer Lawyers Services program but at this time has more applicants seeking  bankruptcy help than can be placed among local attorneys.  CLA has offices in Worcester, Springfield, Northampton and Pittsfield, and attorneys can arrange to meet with clients in these offices.  If you are able to help, please contact Patricia Walsh-Ollari, [email protected] or Carmen Gonzalez, [email protected].  CLA will also periodically be posting some of its bankruptcy cases on www.massprobono.org.
