Volunteers needed immediately for remote service during the COVID-19 emergency

PBRC’s Maryland Immigrant Legal Assistance Project (MILAP):

Every Wednesday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, MILAP needs 3 volunteer attorneys to give legal advice to immigrants in removal proceedings. Volunteers can participate in these clinics from the safety and comfort of their own homes using WhatsApp videoconferencing technology on their cellphones. Training, mentorship, malpractice insurance, and interpreters provided.

If you would like to volunteer, click here or contact Cate Scenna at 443-465-4627 or cscenna@probonomd.org.

PBRC’s Tax Sale Prevention clinics:
Baltimore’s tax sale has been postponed, but the sale will proceed eventually, and homeowners need our help.  Volunteer to provide legal consultations via a web-based telephone connection. Sign up for a two-hour slot, to call several homeowners at risk of tax sale and provide advice by phone. PBRC will provide one-on-one mentorship support by chat and phone, and will manage all the documents.

  1. Sign up now for an appointment slot (or slots!) by email.
  2. Then, register for the online legal training.
  3. We will follow up with logistical details.

Plan to set up 15-20 minutes in advance of your time slot, to leave time for technology troubleshooting and a brief orientation with your PBRC mentor.  Calls can be made from your own home or office, and we have both evening and weekend appointments available.  We will only have two volunteer attorneys making calls at a time, so that we can provide full staff support.
