Volunteering During the Public Health Crisis

We welcome the involvement of law students, law graduates and lawyers offering their assistance to help low-income litigants in family court with custody, domestic violence and other problems based on their range of practice, litigation know-how, linguistic capabilities and available Center resources for training and mentorship.

Volunteers are the backbone of the Buhai Center. We welcome lawyers, law graduates, paralegals, interpreters, community members and students to become involved in the Center’s programs. The Harriett Buhai Center handles the most personal and important legal problems an individual can face – issues concerning safety, the well-being of one’s children and financial security. Volunteers play an active role in the Center’s mission of protecting victims of domestic violence, improving the welfare of children living in poverty, and assuring people in need meaningful access to the courts.

Serving as the largest independent pro bono family law firm in Southern California, the Center offers its new volunteers thorough training and supervision in family law. Volunteers may expect to address family problems including: divorce, custody and visitation, support, restraining orders, paternity and division of property. The Center provides its volunteers with a learning environment, networking opportunities, and chance to give back. The Center maintains professional liability coverage for its volunteers.
