Charities looking for assistance with legal costs are being actively sought out by a company wanting to help.
Volunteer Lawyers Service is a legal organization that has more lawyers than charities, said the chair of VLS, Bruce Churchill-Smith.
Churchill-Smith said the program is there to assist charities with everything from startup needs, to taxes, to being sued and everything in between.
A lawyer himself, Churchill-Smith said it’s about giving back to the community.
“It’s an important part of what we do as lawyers,” he said.
Not-for-profit organizations are encouraged to apply to see if they qualify for the assistance, since there is a screening process to ensure that those getting help actually need it.
Interested charities can call (403) 218-4317, or visit www.volunteerlawyersalberta.com.
