Here at Lowcountry Legal Volunteers we can’t believe that it is already Spring! In the first part of this year, we did a lot of goal setting as a team. The two words that kept coming into our conversation were empowerment and collaboration. Our clients are our #1 Priority and this year we want to strengthen and empower our clients so that they can stand on their own two feet and raise their family in what is not the easiest of times. LCLV also wants to focus on ways that we can collaborate with other non-profits and agencies to help more people in more ways.

When a client comes to us in need of free legal representation, we don’t just verify their income and determine whether their situation is a type of case we handle, we look at the whole person and their family’s overall needs. That is why we are mobilizing to create new partnerships and to expand to open a new office and to grow our main office in Okatie as part of the 14th Circuit Victim’s Services Center and our office in the City of Hardeeville. We also plan to develop new programs to serve clients in more ways.

There is one thing that will never change when it comes to the work that Lowcountry Legal Volunteers does for the community– the need for and the vital role that our volunteers play in the success of this organization and the impact it has on the communities we serve. We are always looking for volunteers– whether they are retired attorneys, local attorneys who want to take cases pro bono, or retired paralegals and administrative assistants.

At LCLV, we never forget the support we receive from our grantors and donors makes all of this possible! Here’s to our 23rd year of service-and to making more people’s lives better together!
