Pro Bono Legal Services

VLA provides legal services to low-income artists and all non-profit arts organization in every artistic discipline. We consult with thousands of artists and representatives of nonprofit arts organizations each year. Typically, we offer consultations each business day.

Our staff attorneys successfully resolve about 50% of matters in the initial consultation or clinic. If your matter requires further legal assistance and you meet VLA’s income guidelines, VLA will seek to place your case with a volunteer attorney. Most matters are placed within 4 to 12 weeks, but we cannot guarantee placement. We do, however, make our best effort to place your case.

In addition to in-house consultations, clinics and pro bono placement, VLA also provides the following: MediateArt, services for Artists Over Sixty and our Patent Pro Bono Program.
