The Integrated Bar of the Philippines
The Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) can assist you in locating a qualified attorney that fits your financial circumstances. You need only ask. Many communities have IBP chapters. Click here to go directly to the IBP list of chapters on their website. If there is not a chapter in your area, you should contact the IBP main office in Manila.
The IBP states that:
Legal Aid is not a matter of charity. It is a means for the correction of social imbalances that may and often do lead to injustice, for which reason it is a public responsibility of the Bar.
So don’t be shy about asking them for help.
