Volunteering for the Access to Justice Program

Would you like to assist Legal Aid or participate in the Access to Justice program?

Please email Emily Kollhoff at ekollhoff@chescobar.org - VOLUnteers are always needed!

Why is this program special?
Many hardworking Chester County residents earn too much to qualify for a free Legal Aid lawyer, yet cannot afford the high cost of hiring a private attorney. The members of the Chester County Bar Association recognize this challenge and offer a solution with the Access to Justice program. The Chester County Bar Association is the only bar association in the state with this unique, award winning program. This program fills the gap between Pro Bono and hiring an attorney at full cost.

Cases we accept include: 

  • Simple Wills
  • Power of Attorney
  • Living Wills
  • Bankruptcy
  • Landlord-Tenant
  • Elder Law
  • Custody and Visitation
  • No Asset Divorce
  • Small Estates
  • Miscellaneous cases at the discretion of the program.
