LSNV created the Attorney of the Day Program (AOD), to help low-income victims of domestic violence get protective orders so that they, and their families, stay safe. The concept of the program is simple: rather than attempt to secure representation for protective order hearings at the last minute, LSNV asks pro bono attorneys to commit to the cases on a specific date. This permits attorneys-who are otherwise willing but whose schedules are often full-to plan their volunteering months in advance. LSNV provides free CLE training at least once a year to familiarize attorneys with the law and the process in exchange for two days each year. Dan Schy, one of LSNV's pro bono volunteers, says AOD "is a great opportunity for lawyers to get in the courtroom and give back to the community."

Recently, AOD got a huge boost when Dan and several other volunteer attorneys: Amy Bradley, Joe Dailey, and Laura O'Brien agreed to act as the Attorney of the Day Steering Committee. In addition to taking cases themselves, they reach out to their networks of fellow attorneys to help LSNV fill its AOD calendar with pro bono volunteers. Having more AOD volunteers has helped LSNV increase its ability to serve domestic violence survivors as Amy puts it: "we are so very appreciative of the volunteers for the Attorney of the Day program. We could not continue to serve the hundreds of victims of domestic violence without the dedication of these selfless attorneys who dedicate their time to serving members of the community in need."
