Philanthropic Spotlight: San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program
PBO Advisory Group is proud to provide accounting and finance services to San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program (SDVLP), a network of local attorneys who provide pro bono legal assistance to marginalized individuals in San Diego County. By bringing together both lawyers from large firms and sole practitioners, SDVLP has organized a collection of 37 attorneys and administrators who volunteer to represent underprivileged communities including abused women, children, the homeless, veterans, immigrants, the seriously ill, and many others who would otherwise go without legal representation. For nearly 40 years, SDVLP has worked to increase legal access to these communities, assisting more than 6,000 individuals on an annual basis. This makes the organization one of the largest providers of pro bono legal services in San Diego County.
SDVLP volunteers work in four locations across the county. In addition to providing legal representation, their volunteers also train and mentor other attorneys interested in providing pro bono legal services which helps to simplify the process of getting involved.
SDVLP is currently gearing up to hold its annual Justice For All Celebration on Thursday, September 29 to honor several local pro bono service award winners and express appreciation for the volunteers, supporters, and community members that allow SDVLP to continue its work to increase access to justice by providing pro bono legal assistance to members of the San Diego community. Held at Farmer & The Seahorse in Torrey Pines, the event will feature a cocktail reception including gourmet hors d’oeuvres. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for networking and the award ceremony will begin at 7 p.m.
Proceeds from the event directly support SDVLP’s work to support San Diegans struggling with devastating legal problems through pro bono representation.
