Volunteer Lawyers

Congratulations to Eve Newman, Carol Nolan & Richard Rosenzweig as the 2017-2018 Super Volunteers for reaching the maximum CLE Credits available for volunteering with the RCBA VLP. Thank you, Eve, Carol & Rich. You three have been invaluable!

The Richmond County Bar Association formed the Volunteer Lawyers' Project in response to the recent and ongoing foreclosure crisis to help truly needy families who cannot afford to hire an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, the Volunteer Lawyers' Project has an excellent team of volunteer lawyers who are deeply committed to helping our community.

Individuals and families are screened for financial eligibility and referred to the Richmond County Bar Association legal referral service if they are able to pay. The referral service consists of a panel of experienced attorneys who are qualified to represent you fully in the particular area of law you need. Help is just a phone call away.

If you would like to get up to 10 CLE Credits per year for volunteering and help Pro Se litigants with their foreclosure cases, Call Jesse Eisenberg, Executive Director, at 718-442-0625 or email RCBAVLP@gmail.com to start volunteering.

Flexible hours that can work with your court schedule. No experience necessary. Training provided.
