NWIRP Seeks Candidates for its Board of Directors
Take a Pro Bono Case
NWIRP heavily relies on legal professionals in the community to augment our resources and increase our ability to provide direct representation to clients. We have a large and diverse pro bono panel but even with the help of this committed group of professionals, can take only the cases of a small percent of the clients who contact us for help. If you or someone you know is in the legal profession and might be able to assist in taking a pro-bono case, please contact:
