Mid-Shore Pro Bono is the Eastern Shore’s Legal Network which provides free access to legal services for low income members of our community. We strive to pair qualified families and individuals with volunteer attorneys who want to make a difference in the lives of some of the Shore’s neediest residents. An attorney partnering with MSPB can look forward to the following benefits:
Attorneys not licensed to practice in Maryland but licensed in other states may now volunteer their services at MSPB. A recent rule change regarding admission to the Maryland Bar allows these attorneys to represent clients through legal service organizations in Maryland as long as they receive no compensation for their time.
MSPB seeks retired Maryland lawyers who still maintain their license to provide pro bono legal services. MSPB can connect lawyers with the training and resources they might need to provide legal services to members of the community in need.
Attorneys may contact MSPB for more information on the certification process.
