Pro Bono Clinic Policy

Gwinnett County Probate Court



The Gwinnett Pro Bono Project, in partnership with the Gwinnett County Probate Court, offers a Probate Clinic on the first and third Thursdays of each month. The Clinic is designed to assist individuals of modest means who are not represented by an attorney. The Clinic offers fifteen (15) minute consultations with local attorneys to address basic questions about uncontested matters involving wills, estates, administrations, guardianships, and conservatorships. The Clinic is not designed to help people with the drafting of wills or with issues in other practice areas. If an Attendee's case falls outside the scope of the Clinic, his or her reservation may be cancelled.

Pro Bono Clinic Reservation

Requirements

Reservations are required. Anyone wishing to attend the Clinic must make a reservation online. Although walk-ins may be accepted based on availability, there is no guarantee that individuals without reservations will be able to participate in the Clinic.

Attendees must check in upon arrival at the Clinic reception table located in the Auditorium Breezeway of the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, 75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville, Georgia. Please note that the Clinic location is subject to change. Notices of any location changes will be posted at the Auditorium Breezeway and Courtroom 1-H.

Upon checking in, each Attendee will receive a questionnaire that must be completed prior to his or her meeting with a volunteer attorney. Further, each Attendee must sign an Agreement for Limited Legal Advice. Each attorney consultation lasts approximately fifteen (15) minutes. The consultations are short and move rapidly, so please arrive prepared. Bring any documents (e.g. petitions, wills, or deeds) that may assist the volunteer attorney in review of the case.

Attendees should arrive on time (plan for parking and court security delays). In general, Attendees meet with volunteer attorneys based on the order that they check in with the Clinic reception table. If space is available, walk-ins may be accepted until 4:00 p.m. at the sole discretion of Clinic staff. Please note that priority will be given to Attendees who have made a reservation through the online reservation system.

Questions about the Clinic may be directed to the Gwinnett Pro Bono Project at (678) 514-4818 or (678) 514-4823.
