MVLS is the largest pro bono legal services provider in the state both in terms of volunteers, over 1,600 lawyers on its panel, and clients served, more than 75,000 since our founding in 1981. Our core pro bono program expands the capacity of Maryland’s overburdened legal services delivery system which can serve only 20% of low-income clients in need of civil legal services. MVLS volunteers help approximately 3,000 low-income Marylanders every year. Learn more with the MVLS program descriptions below.
