Volunteer attorneys meet with both low-income individuals as well as those experiencing homelessness in private sessions and provide on-the-spot legal information and advice as well as referrals to low income/pro bono legal service programs. The attorneys also help draft legal documents. In many instances, the problems of the interviewees can be resolved at the clinic. Volunteer hours count toward fulfilling the obligation of 50 hours of pro bono work under Supreme Court Rule 16-601 NMRA. The HLC is covered by a malpractice insurance policy through the State Bar of New Mexico.
