In 1981, volunteers with a passion for and commitment to public service founded LevittQuinn Family Law Center. For many years thereafter, we operated exclusively through the contributions of volunteers. Today our organization has grown to include a professional staff of experts in a variety of family law practice areas. Volunteers are still an important part of our mission to ensure stability for children and their families in the face of legal difficulties. Professionals, students, and community members all play a role. Volunteering with us is a great way to support a mission-driven organization, gain experience, and develop your professional and social networks.
We work with volunteers to create opportunities that maximize their unique skills, interests, and experience to best help us serve our client community. LevittQuinn is committed to language access and recruiting volunteers fluent in languages other than English, with Spanish being the most common. To apply for a volunteer opportunity, please download and complete this form. After submitting the form, please email your current resume to email@example.com. A cover letter is optional, but welcomed. We look forward to meeting you!
Lawyers and law students work under the supervision of a LevittQuinn attorney to interview clients about their legal issues and give legal advice under attorney support and supervision.
