With the help and support of volunteer lawyers and a small team of specialists, Pro Bono has helped Eastern Shore families, and individuals navigate the sometimes daunting legal system to help with bankruptcy, child custody, divorce, and small claims, among of host of other legal matters for those who lack the resources to seeking justice.
