In collaboration with partners across Washington State, the Attorney General's Office of Military and Veteran Legal Assistance is actively encouraging attorneys and other members of the legal community to volunteer their time to meet the legal needs of our military service members and veterans.

There are a number of ways that legal professionals can contribute their time and talents to help serve Washington’s military service members and veterans:

Direct Representation

Recurring Legal Clinics

Training & Mentoring
Direct Representation
The Office of Military and Veteran Legal Assistance works to connect qualifying military service members and veterans to volunteer attorneys for help with select civil legal issues. This opportunity matches individuals seeking legal assistance with volunteer attorneys willing to take on direct representation. Volunteers interested in receiving potential referrals can specify the areas of law they are willing to help with and the scope of representation they provide.
Recurring Legal Clinics
The Office of Military and Veteran Legal Assistance partners with various community partners across the state to coordinate one-day legal clinic events focused on meeting the legal needs of Washington’s military and veteran populations. Clinic events will vary by subject and location, and offer an opportunity for volunteers to join forces for one day to make a collective impact.
Training & Mentoring
In support of its volunteers, the Office of Military and Veteran Legal Assistance is working to build a library of resources and materials that will help make volunteers more effective advocates. By contributing to training and/or mentoring, volunteers can share their expertise and knowledge, and improve the delivery of legal services to Washington’s military and veteran families. This type of volunteer opportunity can be very flexible, as well individualized to the volunteer and their knowledge base.
