About Us

The Volunteer Lawyers Project of Onondaga County, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) legal aid organization affiliate of the Onondaga County Bar Association. We provide free legal information, assistance and representation to low-income clients facing civil legal issues.

VLP maximizes the Onondaga County Bar Association’s relationship with law firms, academic institutions, legal aid organizations and nonprofits to recruit, training and supervise volunteer attorneys, law students, paralegals and community members who provide all of our legal services.

We leverage the energies of our attorneys to expand access to justice by identifying and meeting the unmet civil legal services needs of low-income people in Onondaga County.
