Volunteer Attorney Program

LAOC facilitates a Volunteer Attorney Program (VAP) where private attorneys agree to take cases for clients who have been screened through the LAOC intake process when Legal Assistance of Olmsted County cannot handle a legal matter due to:

(1) a conflict of interest;

(2) case not handled by LAOC; or

(3) the current caseload at LAOC doesn’t permit the office to take the case.

Cases with which a volunteer attorney may help include:

  • Family
  • Consumer/Financial
  • Guardianship/Conservatorship
  • Landlord Tenant/Housing
  • Property/Real Estate
  • Elder Law/Probate/Wills
  • Immigration
  • Employment Law
