Military Pro Bono Project Cases
As of 8/6/2015
The American Bar Association Military Pro Bono Project (www.militaryprobono.org) is currently looking for attorneys in Alaska to help our servicemembers. The ABA Military Pro Bono Project connects junior-enlisted, active-duty military personnel and their families to civilian attorneys who will provide free representation for various civil legal issues beyond the scope of services provided by military legal assistance offices. The Project accepts case referrals from military legal assistance attorneys (i.e., JAGs) across the country and around the world, and connects these servicemembers with pro bono attorneys throughout the United States. Servicemembers’ legal needs are arising in the areas of consumer law, family law, landlord-tenant, employment law, and others. Unfortunately, the Project has few Alaska attorneys registered with the Project and there is a growing need for pro bono assistance on behalf of our servicemembers in Alaska, so the Project is looking for your help!
Anchorage (Eagle River): An Army service member who is deployed in the Middle East seeks pro bono assistance with a divorce. No filings have yet been made. The divorce will involve child custody and real property. (#21056)
