Pro Bono Safety Project
Volunteer attorneys from diverse practice fields represent survivors of domestic violence at order for protection and harassment restraining order proceedings in Hennepin and Ramsey Counties. Legal advocates at domestic abuse agencies refer clients and support the client and the attorney throughout the case. Tubman screens clients for income eligibility and need for representation and gathers case information. Volunteer Attorneys attend a free half-day training and represent at least two clients per year. A Tubman staff attorney provides legal support, case consultation and mentoring. Volunteer attorneys typically spend 10 to 20 hours per case, and are not required to have family law experience.
The Safety Project provides high quality pro bono representation to low-income victim survivors seeking civil Orders for Protection who have a compelling need for legal assistance. This program welcomes attorneys from all specialties to volunteer.
