As of October 2010, our PVLA service application process includes proof of income documents and a nonrefundable application fee. These materials are only required if an artist or arts or cultural organization would like to apply to be matched to an attorney for pro bono legal representation or advice. These materials are unnecessary for those clients who would like to request a referral list or educational materials. Application fees may be waived upon showing of hardship.
For more details on our application process, please contact us.
The initial application fee for a consultation service (Legal Lines or ArtFaxes) is $50. Full Service representation carries a $75 fee for individual artists, $100 fee for arts collectives, and a $175 fee for qualifying NPOs. Additional fees, fee credits, and waivers are at the discretion of the Director. In Full Service representation, although the volunteer attorney’s time is pro bono, you will still be responsible for any out-of-pocket costs such as filing fees, postage, etc.
