Adversary Proceeding Pro Bono Program

Pro Bono Attorneys

In an appropriate Adversary Proceeding case, the Court may allow an indigent party’s Application for volunteer pro bono counsel. When this occurs, every effort will be made to refer the applicant to a volunteer from a panel of those lawyers who have actively expressed an interest in providing pro bono representation in this Court.

Volunteer counsel through this program may apply for reimbursement of certain expenses in accordance with the Court’s Guidelines Governing the Reimbursement of Expenses in Pro Bono Cases, subject to both court approval and available funding.

An attorney interested in volunteering may complete the registration form available through the link provided below and send it to the Pro Bono Coordinator:
