Modest Means Project

Modest Means Project: This Project provides low-cost legal assistance to individuals who do not qualify for free legal services, but cannot afford the expertise of attorneys at the standard rate. The Modest Means Project assists individuals in a one-hour meeting for a fee of $75. In that meeting, attorneys are expected to offer only brief advice or unbundled services. A lawyer may offer full representation, but it is not the expectation of the Modest Means Project. If full representation is requested, the Modest Means Project attorney can agree to offer representation beyond the scope of the Project's one-hour consultation commitment, but must maintain the fee of $75 per hour. The Modest Means Project does not require attorneys to provide free legal services.

This is a joint program with the State Bar of Arizona.

Military Legal Assistance Project

The Military Legal Assistance Project provides low-cost legal assistance to active military and veterans who cannot afford the expertise of an attorney at standard rates, but who cannot qualify for free legal services due to income qualifications or case type restrictions. The Project serves those whose income is less than or equal to 150% of the federal poverty guidelines. Attorneys participating in the Military Legal Assistance Project are required to provide a free, one hour consultation to eligible applicants referred for service. If an attorney chooses to further the representation, the attorney agrees to do so on a pro bono basis.

This is a joint program with the State Bar of Arizona.
