I’m thankful to the Access Project and Legal Services of Northern California for this second chance. I had done everything I could to change my life, but my past was always with me. Now I can feel good about myself, and my record shows the person I am now.

I loved working with the Access Project. As a junior attorney, the client contact and stand-up experience I had on my Access Project cases was invaluable. The Access Project helped me every step of the way to achieve fantastic results for my clients.

TAP’s spirit of collaboration and commitment to increasing access to pro bono legal services are two of many reasons I am thrilled to continue the partnership between TAP and OneJustice.

We are so grateful to have the Access Project in our community. Nora Cregan, its founder, really understands how to engage lawyers from all practices and levels of experience in pro bono work that might be very different from their day-to-day practice. She provide superb training and mentoring, and designs limited assistance pro bono opportunities that even the busiest lawyers can embrace.

Our Mission

The Access Project (TAP) was founded in 2019 to provide access to high-quality legal services to people of limited means and underserved communities by bringing together non-profits, law firms, and tech companies. TAP leverages the resources and enthusiasm of law firm volunteers to complement the work of legal services organizations (LSOs) through innovative technologies and creative program design. We have a particular interest in serving people in areas where existing LSOs struggle to meet demand, with the goal of supporting their efforts  to provide quality services to more people in need.
