Charleston Pro Bono Provides Free Civil Legal Assistance for Low Income Clients

Legal Services

Charleston Pro Bono provides advice, brief preparation services, and direct representation on a variety of civil legal issues. For more complex cases, Charleston Pro Bono connects low-income clients with private attorneys interested in pro bono work, ensuring the doors of justice are open to all.


Our team attends numerous community outreach events in partnership with fellow nonprofits and community stakeholders. We host educational programs and clinics to better serve our community throughout Charleston County.


We provide legal education and volunteer opportunities to area schools including College of Charleston and the Charleston School of Law. By instilling an ethos of public service into the next generation of attorneys, we are increasing awareness of the justice gap and the need to address it.

For the Community,
By the Community

Through the support and active engagement of local volunteer attorneys, Charleston Pro Bono provides legal services that support the fundamental needs of Charleston’s low-income communities, helping children, families, and individuals. We are truly an organization for the community, by the community.
