Bryant v. Potter Doc. 6 Att. 1 Federal Pro Bono Project of the United States District Court Northern District of California with The Bar Association of San Francisco Volunteer Legal Services Program Instruction Sheet for Litigant TO: Carl Bryant FROM: Magistrate Judge James Larson DATE: October 1, 2010 RE: Referral to the Federal Pro Bono Project You are being referred to the Federal Pro Bono Project of the Volunteer Legal Services Program of the Bar Association of San Francisco ("VLSP"). This organization will attempt to locate a volunteer attorney willing to be appointed to represent you in your case. There is no guarantee that the Project will be able to locate an attorney to represent you. To remain eligible for this Project, it is important that you follow all of the instructions below: 1. During the time the Project is attempting to find an attorney for your case, you must notify the Project staff immediately if you change your address or telephone number. Write to: Jennifer Greengold Healey (415) 626-6917; fax (415)626-6997 Supervising Attorney Federal Legal Assistance & Pro Bono Project Volunteer Legal Services Program of BASF 450 Golden Gate Ave, 15th Floor, rm 15-2796 San Francisco, CA 94102 2. During this time, one or more attorneys may want to speak with you in person or over the telephone to help them decide whether they will be able to represent you. This may require that you meet with the attorney or attorneys in their offices. You should be prepared to attend such meetings. The attorney or attorneys may also want to speak with potential witnesses. You will be contacted by the Project staff if a volunteer attorney agrees to represent you. This process may take as long as several months. If you are referred to a volunteer attorney, you will be expected to cooperate fully with that attorney. If you are referred to a volunteer attorney, do not miss any appointments with the attorney, except in an emergency. If you miss an appointment or fail to cooperate with your attorney, you may no longer be entitled to receive free legal services through VLSP. 3. 4. EXHIBIT C TO FEDERAL PRO BONO PROJECT GUIDELINES
