The ABA Military Pro Bono Project accepts case referrals from military attorneys on behalf of junior-enlisted, active-duty military personnel and their families with civil legal problems, and it places these cases with pro bono attorneys where the legal assistance is needed. The Project is also the platform for Operation Stand-By, through which military attorneys may seek attorney-to-attorney guidance.

- Referring Cases for Pro Bono Legal Assistance

The ABA Military Pro Bono Project offers attorneys two ways to help military families:
- Providing Pro Bono Legal Representation to Military Members
Attorneys can register to receive emails from the ABA Military Pro Bono Project with pro bono case opportunities that arise in their geographic and substantive areas. Read about our volunteer attorneys' success stories with helping military families. Learn more.
- Joining Operation Stand-By to Assist Military Attorneys
Attorneys can register to join Operation Stand-By to volunteer time to receive calls or emails from military attorneys in need of attorney-to-attorney advice on state-specific legal information, so they can further assist their servicemember clients. Learn more.
Servicemembers and Families Needing Legal Help
If you are a servicemember, veteran, or military family member in need of legal assistance, visit ABA Home Front where you can use (1) the Directory of Programs to find a state-by-state guide of legal resources available to military families and (2) the Information Center to find information on a variety of legal topics.
No legal representation, advice, or assistance is provided by the Military Pro Bono Project staff. Click here for more information on how to be referred to the Project.
