This form is for attorneys to volunteer with the ABLE and LAWO Pro Bono Legal Services Program. Do not use this form to apply for legal help. If you need legal help in any of the Ohio counties shown here apply online at LegalAidLine.org or call (888) 534-1432.

Thank you for your interest. The LiveChat project is designed to assist applicants that have relatively uncomplicated issues and would otherwise be turned away without any assistance. LAWO has created predefined content to assist attorneys with the typical advice for these situations. The content can be easily modified based on the specific facts discovered during your chat appointment.

Our current predefined content relates to the following:

  • Consumer: Debt Collection, Wage Garnishment, and Bad Used Car
  • Housing: Eviction with a 3/30-Day Notice or pending hearing, Rent Escrow/conditions issues, and Security Deposit Return
  • Family: Establish Paternity

Our initial LiveChat volunteer trainings covers PIKA and LivePerson. You will have access to both web-based programs for LiveChat appointments. You only need reliable access to the internet for both programs. You should be able to use a PC, Mac, tablet, or smartphone to access both Pika and LivePerson.

After completing the training, we ask volunteers to provide dates/times for chat appointments. Appointments can be scheduled during typical business hours, evenings, or weekends. Your availability can be communicated weekly, monthly or however works best for you. Legal Aid Line will send you an email once the appointment has been filled with the client's name. We suggest that you allow an hour for each appointment. This should give you sufficient time to prepare, complete the chat, and finalize any notes.

Please register below and feel free to contact Melissa LaRocco at mlarocco@lawolaw.org or Chanda Brown at cbrown@lawolaw.org with any further questions.
