Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas

Partner Overview

Volunteer Legal Services (VLS) is a nonprofit organization that helps provide free legal advice and representation to people with civil legal matters who cannot afford an attorney.

VLS can help with civil cases only. They cannot help with criminal, immigration, or contested probate matters.

  • You can apply to get advice on civil legal issues through their Legal Advice Clinics. Those eligible to receive further legal assistance will be contacted by VLS after their advice session.
  • After receiving advice at VLS’ Legal Advice Clinic, a limited number of applicants are eligible to have their cases reviewed for additional legal services, such as direct representation.
  • VLS can only provide direct representation to a limited number of applicants who meet their eligibility guidelines. VLS’ eligibility guidelines impose limits based on household income, assets, service area (Travis, Williamson, Bastrop, Hays), program resources, and type of legal matter.
  • Applying for representation does not guarantee that VLS will provide representation.
