How to Become a Dinah Volunteer Attorney

Dinah offers free CLE credits to any attorneys who volunteer to take Dinah low-cost and pro bono cases. A 2-hour training provides 1 hour of substantive and 1 hour of ethical CLE credits.

Attorneys wishing to attend CLEs but are not ready to commit to volunteering with Dinah are welcome to do so for $36.00.

CLE trainings will begin in fall 2018. Check back to our calendar to register for CLEs and other events as they become available.

If you are already a family law attorney with experience in domestic abuse law, contact shana@dinahphilly.org to help meet our immediate need for competent volunteer attorneys.

What We Expect of Our Volunteer Attorneys

We hold our volunteer attorneys to these core values:

  • Confidentiality for our work and our clients
  • Responsiveness to all communications from clients and Dinah staff
  • Sensitivity to highly emotional and stressful situations
  • Competence in practice, by completing our CLEs and utilizing additional resources available and Dinah staff
  • Professionalism in all Dinah encounters, including treating all clients as you would any other client coming into your practice

We expect our volunteer attorneys to see any cases through to their completion. In a protection from abuse proceeding, that involves a hearing at which point a judge will generally grant or deny the petition. For a custody matter, the commitment may be a bit more involved, requiring communication with opposing counsel to come to an agreement as to custody, or proceeding to trial for the judge to render a custody order. Custody orders are always reviewable and modifiable upon petition from either party until the children are 18 years old. While it is unlikely that any attorney can guarantee their participation for 18 years, we ask that our volunteers make a good faith effort to remain involved in their cases to their completion.

Intake Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer to conduct intakes over the phone and onsite in various locations around the Greater Philadelphia area, please email shana@dinahphilly.org.

Volunteers will be asked to attend our 2-hour training, free of charge, before being assigned volunteer shifts.

Join Our Board

Dinah is young, and we are continually looking to grow our board with dedicated and passionate individuals who can donate time and resources to help us thrive and reach greater heights.

At the moment, we are specifically seeking individuals with accounting experience. If you are interested and believe Dinah may be a good fit for your philanthropic time, please do not hesitate to email shana@dinahphilly.org.

Founders’ Circle

Dinah wouldn’t have gotten this far without the generous support of those who believed in our work before we were a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and those who continue to support us today. As a thank you, everyone who supported us up to December 31, 2017, is a member of the Founders’ Circle.

Additionally, as part of our March Women’s History Month campaign, any donors who make contributions of at least $180 will also become members of the Dinah Founders’ Circle.

Members of the Founders’ Circle will have a permanent place on our website, and will be recognized in the program of any events we hold.
