Modest Means Project and Military Legal Assistance Project

The Modest Means and Military Legal Assistance Projects are partnerships programs of the Foundation and the State Bar of Arizona.

Modest Means Project: This 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. The Modest Means Project does not require attorneys to provide free legal services.

Arizona Military Legal Assistance Project: This Project provides free legal assistance to veterans and servicemembers who meet the project's guidelines. The Project assists individuals with a free one-hour meeting with an attorney. In that meeting, attorneys can offer brief advice or unbundled services. A lawyer may offer full representation but it is not the expectation of the Project. If full representation is requested, the attorney can agree to offer representation beyond the scope of the Project's one-hour consultation commitment, but the service must be pro-bono. The Military Legal Assistance Project does require attorneys to provide free legal services.

In order to participate in these Projects, 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.
