Pro Bono

The Connecticut Bar Association supports members who provide legal services for people in need who cannot afford an attorney.  As a member-service organization for attorneys, we do not provide legal representation or advice to individuals or organizations.

If you need legal services but cannot afford an attorney you should contact one of the organizations listed below to see if you qualify for pro-bono or reduced fee legal representation.

Don’t Qualify for Free Legal Help?

If you do not qualify for pro bono assistance, you may try calling one of the lawyer referral services in Connecticut.

These are not pro bono services; you will have to pay for an attorney to represent you.
