You have read and heard that you can get free legal services. The question in most people’s minds is whether these services are any good; after all, they are free if you get them through the right organizations.
If you are looking for free legal representation, look through associations in your area that offer them. There may be lawyers who sit there permanently but in most cases, there is just skeleton staff. When you go in and you need a lawyer, they contact some of the legal firms in their lists, the ones that have signed up to offer free or pro bono services. From these, they will find you someone to work on your matter.
But why would a legal firm offer their services for free? Because it is free PR for them within the legal community. In some cases, the bar may require that every firm do a certain number of pro bono cases every year. If they fail to make the cut, they may get penalties. To find out how committed they were to the cases that they are required to handle, the bar looks at how many of those got a favorable outcome for the client.
In summary, free legal services are offered either to gain PR or to meet a bar requirement so in both cases, you can expect to get good representation.
