Pro Bono Counsel For 
Pro Se Clients in Mediation

in the Western District of Pennsylvania

The United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania has, since early 2007, been offering to its pro se litigants the assistance of pro bono counsel during the alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) process.  Through the Court’s Pro Se Pro Bono ADR Program, pro se litigants receive professional evaluation and legal advice at a critical juncture of their case, and they gain a better understanding of, and assistance through, the ADR process.  This legal assistance was expanded in 2013 to include incarcerated pro se litigants who have filed civil cases with the court. The appointment is for the ADR process only and does not obligate counsel to assist the litigant with any other aspect of their case.

The Pro Se Pro Bono ADR Program has, since its inception, been administered for the Court by the law firm of Jones Day.  If you would like to volunteer legal services to the Pro Se Pro Bono ADR Program, please contact the current coordinator of the Court’s Pro Se Pro Bono Program,
Alison Kilmartin of Jones Day at 412-394-7252 or email her at amkilmartin@jonesday.com.
