Free Legal Hotlines

Hotline Volunteer

Volunteering at TAP is a rewarding opportunity to give back to the community and learn a lot in the process. The attorneys and staff who work here are always willing to teach and are genuinely committed to finding solutions to domestic violence. As a hotline volunteer, I enjoy having one-on-one contact with the people TAP serves because I hear the relief in their voices that someone is here to help. This is a wonderful organization with great people who strive to make a difference in women's lives.

Texas Advocacy Project operates three statewide toll-free legal hotlines: the Family Violence Legal Line, the Sexual Assault Legal Line and the Family Law Hotline. These hotlines are staffed by attorneys who provide assistance to Texans on a variety of legal concerns related to domestic violence, sexual assault and family law. Callers first speak to an Intake Specialist who gathers initial information and determines which of our resources is most appropriate for the caller. A Project attorney then contacts the caller within one to three business days, gathers some essential information to assure the legal advice given is appropriate, and answers the caller's legal questions. In 2008, our legal hotline served 3,672 clients, impacting the lives of approximately 9,330 household members.
