Modest Means Project Volunteer Opportunities at the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education
The Modest Means Project is a partnership program from the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education and the State Bar of Arizona. The Project provides low-cost legal assistance to individuals who do not qualify for free legal services, but cannot afford the expertise of attorneys at the standard rate. The Modest Means Project assists individuals in a one-hour meeting for a fee of $75. In that meeting, attorneys are expected to offer only brief advice or unbundled services. A lawyer may offer full representation, but it is not the expectation of the Modest Means Project. If full representation is requested, the Modest Means Project attorney can agree to offer representation beyond the scope of the Project's one-hour consultation commitment, but must maintain the fee of $75 per hour.
In order to participate in the Modest Means Project, the attorney must be an active member in good standing with the State Bar of Arizona, must complete the Foundations of Ethics/Modest Means CLE and must have liability insurance, which can be obtained through the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education.
