Family law attorneys needed

The Women’s Law Center is seeking volunteers for shifts on the statewide Family Law Hotline.  If you have 2-3 years of Maryland family law experience and would like to assist in answering calls from pro se litigants from around the state.  The Women's Law Center can arrange for the calls to be routed to a dedicated line for your convenience, or you can come to our office in Towson for your shift. Shifts are for 3 ½ hours, either at 9:30 a.m. or at 1:30 p.m., Monday – Friday.  The Women's Law Center provides referral resources for every county.

The Center is also seeking family law attorneys to take Judicare cases in Baltimore County. Attorneys with 2-3 years of family law experience will be paid $80 per hour for up to 20 hours of work on contested custody and divorce cases (after 5 pro bono hours, there may be limited funds to pay for additional hours). Small expenses are reimbursed by the project, and for larger expenses the PBRC has a fund to which we can apply for reimbursement.

Please contact Laure Ruth at, or 410-321-8761 if you are interested in volunteering for the Family Law Hotline, or in being placed on the Women's Law Center Judicare panel of attorneys.
