LegalLine Volunteer Shifts Available for 2018-19 Year


Attorneys licensed in Texas volunteer to give free, anonymous legal advice over the phone to members of the public through LegalLine, a public service provided by the HBA since 1985. In 2017, LegalLine provided a vital service to Houstonians in need of legal guidance after Hurricane Harvey. The HBA needs your help to continue LegalLine.

See the list below for available volunteer shifts. Each shift is approximately two hours long and takes place in the evenings on the first and third Wednesdays each month.
