The Lawyer of the Day Program is a program that provides indigent pro se litigants with legal assistance. The program is open in the Plymouth Courthouse and in the Brockton Courthouse most business days from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Attorneys volunteer their time to assist pro se litigants, but do not represent the litigants in court. The Court is grateful for the efforts of the many attorneys who participate in this extremely valuable program.
The Court extends special thanks to all attorneys who have participated in the Lawyer of the Day Program. Their outstanding service to the public continues the rich tradition of members of the bar in assisting those in need. Attorneys who have contributed their time and effort in 2018-2019 include:
Susan Castleton Ryan
Theresa Dillon Woods
Mary Kate Geary
The Lawyer of the Day Program is administered by Pilgrim Advocates, Inc., 144 Main Street, Brockton, MA 02301. Any attorney who wishes to take part in this extremely worthwhile program should contact Executive Director Jean Lee at (508)583-6966.
Members of the public who wish to utilize this invaluable service are advised to contact the courthouse in the morning after 8:30 a.m. to insure that an attorney will be present that day. On occasion, an attorney’s schedule gets interrupted by critical demands on their time and they are unable to be present. We are unable to guarantee that an attorney will be present each day.
