Welcome to the Southwest Louisiana Bar Foundation

We are excited to have an organized pro bono program in Southwest Louisiana.

We serve residents in Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron and Jefferson Davis parishes, through the attorneys from our local bar association who generously donate their time.

Our services include:

  • Pro bono legal services for those at poverty level who may not have access to a lawyer or legal assistance. These individuals must qualify through Acadiana Legal Service, a private, non-profit law firm.
  • Free legal advice to the public, offered at various locations throughout our 5 parishes.

  • Notary services for the homeless in local shelters through H.E.L.P.
