Legal Resources Scheduling Form
The Association of Pro Bono Counsel (APBCo) is a professional organization for attorneys and practice group managers who run a law firm pro bono practice on a full-time basis. APBCo’s mission is to maximize access to justice through the delivery of pro bono legal services. The Small Business Legal Academy, an idea inspired by a meeting with the board of APBCo and Vice President Biden, is one of many projects developed to broaden collaboration among law firms, legal service providers and government organizations to enhance the access to justice for those who are unable to navigate complicated legal issues. Vinson & Elkins (V&E) pro bono counsel, an active member and current board member of APBCo, brought the City of Houston together with APBCo to establish and host Houston’s First Small Business Legal Academy.
The City of Houston is pleased to again partner with V&E and APBCo to provide small business the opportunity to schedule a 1-on-1 Skype session with a licensed attorney to answer legal questions they may have about their business. These Skype sessions will take place at the Office of Business Opportunity located at 611 Walker, 7th Floor, Houston, Texas 77002.
