Who We Are

The Alameda County Bar Association's Volunteer Legal Services Corporation (VLSC) provides free direct legal assistance to self-represented persons who need assistance with their bankruptcy case in the Oakland Division of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California.
The Program is designed to assist debtors who do not have a bankruptcy attorney.  The VLSC provides free direct legal advice and, in some instances, representation.  VLSC cannot represent all such debtors due to income guidelines and other limitations.

The Contra Costa County Bar Association's Bankruptcy Pro Bono Project presents a bankruptcy clinic designed to assist debtors with bankruptcy questions in the Oakland Division of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California.
