Welcome

The Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program (IVLP) provides a safety net for low-income individuals and families in Idaho who require civil legal services and cannot afford to pay for them.  IVLP recruits attorneys from local communities who volunteer their time and expertise to assist those in need.  Volunteer attorneys provide legal advice and case representation in (mostly) family law cases and increase access to justice for low-income Idahoans through a variety of other IVLP projects.

A Client Says Thanks!

IVLP recruited a volunteer attorney to represent a mother in a modification of her divorce decree because the ex-husband’s drinking had been causing serious problems for the family.  The children were very upset by their father’s behavior and abuse of their mother.  The mother said “He (the attorney) made my dreams come true.”  (She received sole custody of her three children.)  “(The volunteer) made something possible (a better life for my children) that had become impossible.  I really want to thank him and would recommend him to anyone who wants to hire an attorney.”
