Logo

The Portland office of Pine Tree Legal Assistance seeks to provide limited free legal services to low-income people in the southern and central counties of Maine. Volunteers are needed to help make the connection between those in need and the services that might be available.

Description:
Volunteers interview low-income people in need of legal assistance. Access to the legal system is often limited by an inability to pay for representation. As the vital link to a variety of legal and community services, the volunteer has an opportunity to provide much needed assistance while learning about the law. The primary focus is on landlord-tenant conflicts, evictions, public benefit problems, domestic violence issues and some related family law matters.

History:
Pine Tree Legal Assistance is the largest legal service provider for low-income individuals in Maine. It was established in 1965 and has 7 offices throughout the state. The offices are located in Portland, Lewiston, Augusta, Bangor, Rockland, Machias and Presque Isle.
