The ABA Military Pro Bono Project offers attorneys two ways to help: (1) Sign up to stay updated about pro bono case opportunities to provide representation to military members; and (2) Register with Operation Stand-By to receive calls or emails from military attorneys or other pro bono attorneys in need of attorney-to-attorney guidance.
