Wabash Valley Volunteer Attorneys (WVVA) is a merged organization between former Indiana District 4 Pro Bono Corporation (District D) and Wabash Valley Volunteer Attorneys (District E) of the Pro Bono Administration. WVVA’s service area outlines a total of 19 surrounding counties, as follows: Benton, Boone, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Fulton, Grant, Howard, Miami, Montgomery, Parke, Pulaski, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Vermillion, Wabash, Warren, and White.
WVVA offers its services to indigent, low-income families whose total household income is 125% of the poverty level (based on LSC standards). Currently, we extended a legal service to 8 select counties by providing Legal Aid Clinics. The Legal Aid Clinics offer assistance to Pro Se Litigants who could not otherwise afford an attorney. These Clinics offer several opportunities for qualified applicants to have access to the following legal services, but not limited to:
- have his or her pro se paperwork reviewed by an attorney onsite, ensuring it is filled out correctly;
- assist with accessing correct pro se forms if qualified to file pro se;
- provide general answers to civil legal questions or provide alternative resources if available;
- place applicant with a private attorney who accepts the case pro bono; etc.
The Boone County Legal Aid Clinic provided by WVVA operates on the 2nd Thursday of every month. The Legal Aid Clinic is held in the Boone County Courthouse from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.
