The Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program needs attorneys and other legal professionals to help provide free legal help and access to our justice system for low-income people in our community. DVAP has over 30 years of experience recruiting, training and supporting volunteers in their efforts to help low-income people with their legal problems. With over 25% of Dallas County residents living in poverty, DVAP needs as many volunteers as possible to assist those in need.
