Capital Pro Bono provides opportunities for local attorneys to volunteer without having to become of record in a case. CPB currently hosts legal clinics and projects where attorneys can volunteer their time and expertise on a limited scope basis. Please see the Our Services page for more detailed information on our current clinic and project offerings. CPB invites attorneys who are licensed to practice in the state of California and are in good standing with the Bar to join our team of volunteers.
Volunteer attorneys are covered by CPB’s malpractice insurance policy for clinic/project related work performed through CPB. Volunteers will be contacted only regarding those clinics and projects they have indicated an interest in. Of course, volunteers are always free to turn down a request to volunteer if their schedules do not permit them to attend a clinic or project when they are contacted.
If you would like to become a volunteer attorney with CPB, please email us at email@example.com with your interest or fill out the form below.

Capital Pro Bono’s Advisory Committee is comprised of Sacramento area attorneys with a commitment to advancing the interests of pro bono service on behalf of the low income population of Sacramento and the surrounding counties. The Advisory Committee meets every other month to provide guidance to and oversight of CPB’s staff and financial well-being. The Advisory Committee also assists with CPB’s annual Phonathon fundraiser during the Big Day of Giving in early May. Members are encouraged to take on other activities, such as volunteer recruitment and publicity, as their schedules permit. We encourage Sacramento area attorneys with an interest in promoting access to justice for the low income members of our community to join our Advisory Committee.

Make A Donation Make A Difference
Thousands of people in the Sacramento community strongly support Capital Pro Bono in its commitment to providing access to justice for the indigent by volunteering their time and donating the funds needed to continue CPB’s mission.
By giving to CPB, you will enable our clients to be helped with such legal problems as employment law issues, guardianships, consumer protection, family law issues, and estate planning.
Capital Pro Bono’s primary fundraising event is our Phonathon, which is held in conjunction with the Big Day of Giving in early May. At the Phonathon, volunteers call, text, and email members of the legal community and other supporters seeking financial support for the ongoing operations of our program. This one day event has proven to be a great opportunity for volunteers and donors to help support CPB.
The Phonathon began in 1991, and we are proud of the fact that the funds raised have increased over time. We greatly appreciate the support we receive from the legal community and other community members who are concerned with increasing the access to justice for the low income residents of this area.
If you are interested in volunteering at the Phonathon, please contact us for more information.
