PBA Launches Pennsylvania
Free Legal Answers for Pro Bono
Opportunities, Access to Justice
Each year, the PBA pro bono
office receives more than
6,000 requests for legal
advice from people who
either cannot afford it or
don't know where to get it.
In 2017, Legal Services Corporation
reported that 86% of low-income
people with civil legal problems
got no or insufficient help; the
need for pro bono legal services
continues to increase .
The PBA is currently gearing up
for a new initiative offering pro
bono help that will be easy to use
by those seeking advice and those
lawyers willing to provide it . In
collaboration with American Bar
Association Free Legal Answers
(ABA FLA), the PBA has launched
Pennsylvania Free Legal Answers .
The program offers attorneys a
convenient pro bono opportunity
and, more importantly, narrows the
access to justice gap .

bono service is especially acute . " The

impact upon low-income people,
and has caused financial and family
stressors to continue to mount .

has the potential to help thousands
of people who qualify for pro bono
assistance . Rule 6 .1 of the Rules of
Professional Conduct calls on us to
render public interest legal services .

PBA Pro Bono Coordinator David
K . Trevaskis said, " It is a great
opportunity for lawyers across the
state to provide the pro bono service
envisioned by Rule 6 .1 of the Rules
of Professional Responsibility . With
malpractice insurance provided
by the ABA and an easy-to-access
format, with training on how to use
the site available as needed, it is a
22
self-contained platform that may
transform how we approach pro
bono service . "
Once registered and approved
on the site, lawyers may log in at
any time to review a list of user
questions and select the one(s) they
want to answer . Lawyers will use
the categories provided by the user
(such as " housing " or " debt " ) to
help determine which questions they
would like to answer . A lawyer will
