The private attorney involvement (PAI) in the pro bono program is a joint effort of private bar members and Legal Services of the Virgin Islands, Inc. to help fill the gap in providing free civil legal services to low-income residents. There are many indigent persons in the service area covering St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John who will be eligible for legal assistance via the PAI-Pro Bono program.
All of the programs of LSVI focus primarily on providing high quality, client-centered, civil legal representation to low-income and disadvantaged individuals for free. We serve the elderly, victims of domestic violence and sexual assaults, the disabled, abused and neglected children (CASA PROJECT), and low-income individuals pursuant to the federal poverty guidelines. The range of legal assistance includes, advice and counsel, brief services, limited representation, full direct representation (generally litigation), legal education and self-help clinics.
