Salem Oregon Legal Services
ELVIS (Emeritus Lawyers Volunteering In Service) is a volunteer lawyer program that gives retired lawyers the opportunity to continue working in the field of law without sacrificing their retirement. To become an ELVIS attorney, you must have been a member of a state bar association for at least 15 years and currently be a member of the Oregon State Bar. You agree to donate at least 40 hours per year to help legal aid firms meet the needs of the low-income community in your area. The Volunteer Lawyers Project was created in 1987 to give local lawyers, primarily in private practice, the opportunity to offer their services voluntarily to clients eligible for legal aid. Clients go through the regular admissions selection process of MPAS and are referred to volunteer lawyers after assessment by the VPP Coordinator. The Salem regional office of the Oregon Law Center provides quality legal services to the low-income community in Marion, Polk, Linn and Benton counties. Based on our assessment of the legal needs of the community, we consider these main types of questions for case acceptance. Housing cases involving illegal evictions, serious habitability problems or the removal of public housing assistance. Cases of unemployment or wage violations. Cases of consumption involving fraud or illegal behavior.
We also provide advice or recommendations on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) status programs. Salem Insolvency Clinic. The Oregon State Bar Debtor-Creditor Section and LASO are sponsoring this project. The project consists of two components, an insolvency course and a legal clinic where volunteer lawyers meet with clients for 30-minute appointments. Anyone can attend the 45-minute class, taught by a member of the insolvency bar or bank. Volunteer lawyers meet with clients, assist them in assessing whether insolvency is appropriate and, if so, provide ongoing representation.
