PAI: A Great Way to Keep the Lights On

PAI – Private Attorney Involvement

If you are unfamiliar with PAI aka Private Attorney Involvement, a program that incorporates private attorneys into the legal services system of representation on a local basis, then please keep reading.

The following announcement appeared earlier today in the SC Bar’s E-Blast:

Attorneys needed for paid cases
South Carolina Legal Services is required by federal funding to hire private attorneys to take on cases. The rate is $65 per hour. Most of the cases are physical cruelty, divorce and bankruptcy. This is a great opportunity for young attorneys from Richland, Lexington, Sumter, Lee and Kershaw counties to get experience. Contact Brett L. Lamb at (803) 744-4167 or brettlamb@sclegal.org for more information.

This is a wonderful opportunity for new attorneys to gain experience and pay the bills.  If you are a young attorney striking out on your own, or a more experienced attorney looking for an opportunity to slow down your practice while remaining involved, please consider PAI. AND it has the added benefit of assisting people who otherwise would not be able to hire legal representation.

Thanks SC Bar for bringing this important program to light!
