Who We Are

Who We Are

Volunteer Lawyers Project strives to give equal access to representation for the people of Greater Boston, standing up for those who are from lower income households and people 60 years and older. Our efforts are propelled by a strong team of volunteers, including attorneys, paralegals, and law students from all segments of the legal community. These vital volunteers team together with our dedicated staff, including Eastern Region Legal Intake (ERLI).
