Pro Bono Representation

James Olson believes that the practice of law should include the representation of clients without charge, where a client’s financial circumstances leave the individual unable to pay the normal cost of legal services. Representing clients without charge is referred to by the Latin phrase pro bono publica, meaning “for the public good”, or “pro bono” for short.

Mr. Olson typically represents several clients each year on a pro bono basis. However, Mr. Olson accepts referrals of pro bono cases from the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, rather than accepting pro bono representation directly from prospective clients.

If you believe that you need representation for a consumer bankruptcy case, but are unable to pay the cost of retaining an attorney, please contact the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service.
