Pro Bono Program

Attorneys, are you interested in joining our fight to end the criminalization of poverty in Texas and in your community?

Texas Fair Defense Project has created a statewide pro bono network of attorneys willing to represent low-income Texans on their Class C ticket, driver’s license restoration, and criminal record clearing (expunctions and nondisclosures) cases. No experience is necessary. Pro Bono Attorneys will receive access to free CLE trainings, step-by-step instructions and our motions bank, as well as case assistance from Texas Fair Defense Project staff. In return for your pro bono service, you will receive valuable opportunities to hone your own professional skills through petition and motion drafting, litigation, and client counseling.

Will you join us? Fill out this form! Other questions? Contact Sarah Mae Jennings at sjennings@fairdefense.org.
