For fourteen years, the Hampden County Legal Clinic (HCLC), an award-winning, nationally recognized pro bono program of the Hampden County Bar Association and the Hampden County Bar Foundation, has provided free legal advice and law related services to the underserved through a variety of pro-bono initiatives and community-based programs. The HCLC helps individuals to have access to justice in complex civil cases including; probate and family, housing, and general civil litigation.
The HCLC along with the Pro Bono Associate Advisory Board holds an annual Celebrity Bartending Tip-Off- Fundraiser to support the legal clinic. The event along with delicious food and entertainment, features local celebrity bartenders and a silent auction. The event is not only to raise money for the Legal Clinic’s core mission, but also to create an opportunity for people across professions to meet in a relaxed setting. More information on the 2022 Annual Bartending Event will be announced in the near future.
