Volunteer Opportunity – State Bar of Arizona – Phone Bank
Let Joe Know Phone Bank – We are looking for volunteer attorneys to answer phone calls from ABC15 Let Joe Know viewers at ABC15's Phoenix studio. The public will call in with questions and volunteer attorneys will answer. Joe Ducey hosts and does live cut-ins throughout the two hours and volunteers are given the option to be interviewed. We provide dinner and an in-studio tour. This is a really fun volunteer opportunity and a great way to earn positive PR. We tag our attorneys in social media, thank them on our website and in our newsletters, and link to their websites if possible. See dates and topics below.

Volunteer Opportunity – Children’s Law Center at the Volunteer Lawyers Program
The Volunteer Lawyers Program, Children’s Law Center’s greatest need right now is for volunteer attorneys to represent low-income clients, typically grandparents, seeking legal guardianship through the courts to be able to care for their at-risk grandchildren. Parents are often placing children in their grandparents’ care and leaving them without any documents. For the grandparent to enroll the child in school, get medical needs met and often maintain Section 8 housing, they need a court ordered guardianship.
These cases can take 10 to 15 hours of time from start to finish with typically one hearing. They offer free Zoom training and mentoring from other attorneys who have taken these type of cases.
If you would be interested in volunteering for this project or any other Children’s Law Center project, please contact Roni Tropper at Rtropper@clsaz.org. For more information, please click here.
