For attorneys in D.C. and the surrounding area, we offer the following volunteer opportunities. DCVLP provides training, supervision, and many other resources to all volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Cassandra Hetherington, Chetherington@dcvlp.org.
Representing Domestic Violence Victims
In our Domestic Violence Program, volunteers help victims of domestic violence achieve safety and independence by representing them in civil protection order, custody, and divorce cases. Click here to learn more about representing domestic violence victims with us.
Representing At-Risk Children
Our Child Advocacy volunteers are appointed by the court as Guardians ad litem to represent the best interests of children in custody cases where serious risk factors are present, such as abuse, neglect, parental drug addiction or domestic violence.
