Bankruptcy Clinics

Bankruptcy Clinics

The third Tuesday of every month at

 VLP's Offices at 99 Chauncy Street, Boston MA

Some of VLP's most vulnerable clients have a difficult time applying for bankruptcy assistance because of the amount of information and paperwork required to complete their file.  VLP holds a bankruptcy clinic once a month to assist low-income clients with the process of completing our application and gathering the required documents.  VLP is looking for volunteer attorneys, paralegals and law students to staff these clinics.  
Volunteers may give a short presentation on bankruptcy and answer questions from client attendees, meet with a client to determine what documents are needed to complete their file, and try to gather those documents online.  Some examples of the documents needed are credit reports, income or benefit information, asset information and tax returns.  
This clinic is a great introduction to bankruptcy practice for volunteers as well as a time-limited pro bono opportunity for more experienced attorneys that want to help.
