CLEAR Volunteer Attorneys
CLEAR (Coordinated Legal Education, Advice and Referral System) is a Northwest Justice Project program serving low-income people with legal issues in Washington state. This hotline intake system is available for free legal assistance for civil legal problems. Click here for more information about CLEAR.
Due to the volume of calls, when people call the CLEAR hotline number, they often get a busy signal or have to wait half an hour or so for an advocate to answer. The goal of the volunteer project is to serve more low-income people with civil legal issues.
Since almost half of the hotline calls are about family law matters, CLEAR is currently recruiting volunteers who are interested in family law. If you are interested in volunteering with CLEAR, please read on!
Volunteer Job Description
Volunteer attorneys join the NJP CLEAR staff advocates in answering the CLEAR hotline. Theyperform a brief screening for financial eligibility and record demographic data required by funding sources into a computerized database screen callers for conflicts of interest with other CLEAR clients interview clients to ascertain the nature of the problem advise clients of their rights, options, and the specific steps they may take to address the problem refer clients for further legal assistance through CLEAR's database to legal services providers and pro bono organizations across the state.
The CLEAR program provides training to volunteers on our intake procedures and computer system, as well as substantive training on family law as needed. CLEAR also provides case consultation and review, research resources, professional liability insurance, and a congenial volunteer workplace.
CLEAR volunteers must be active members of the WSBA or specially admitted under the exceptions for indigent representation or emeritus membership under Rule 8 of the Washington Admission to Practice Rules. ONE YEAR COMMITMENT REQUIRED.
As of the date of this update, January 2010, volunteers participate from NJP's Seattle office in Pioneer Square. We have a volunteer area equipped with phones, computers, and resource materials.

In every community in Washington, low-income people face urgent civil legal problems. Inadequate resources make it impossible for more than 80% to receive needed legal assistance. This can mean the difference between shelter and homelessness, employment and unemployment, food stamps and hunger, financial stability and bankruptcy -- situations few higher-income people would have to accept. Sadly, justice for those who can afford a lawyer often looks different than justice for those who can't.
The Campaign for Equal Justice is Washington state’s unified annual giving drive benefiting all of our state’s civil legal aid programs and gives each of us the opportunity to make legal assistance available to thousands more. Wherever you live in Washington, the Campaign for Equal Justice reaches your neighbors and your community through the CLEAR legal hotline, a legal services office, or a volunteer attorney program.
In these challenging and uncertain times for migrant farm workers, the Laurel Rubin Farm Worker Justice Project is a simple and cost-effective way to help workers, their families and communities. The Laurel Rubin Farm Worker Justice Project places outstanding law students in farm worker communities throughout Washington state each summer alongside experienced farm worker advocates to help provide civil legal assistance to hundreds more migrant farm workers during the peak of the harvest seasons. Laurel Rubin interns spend 10-12 weeks in the summer traveling to migrant labor camps to provide hands-on outreach to inform farm workers of their rights and responsibilities and assist them on matters involving immigration, environmental justice, civil rights, payment of wages, worker safety and health, housing and consumer rights.
The Project is named in honor of Laurel Rubin, a talented, idealistic Northwest Justice Project attorney who was serving indigent farm workers in our state when she died tragically in 1998 while en route to meet with farm worker clients. Since the Project's inception in 1999, 27 law student summer advocates have been funded, three of whom came from farm worker families themselves. Several Laurel Rubin Interns have chosen to become full time legal aid advocates following graduation from law school.
The financial support that The Campaign for Equal Justice receives from individuals, law firms, foundations, corporations and organizations is the backbone of private funding for civil legal services for the poor in Washington state. Financial contributions to The Campaign for Equal Justice enable the programs, which serve people in need, to continue building a structure and network of service providers working together toward the common goal:
Equal Justice For All Washingtonians
The Older Americans Act requires us to advise clients over age 60 that they may make a voluntary donation to support legal services if they choose to do so. Donations may be made out to The Campaign for Equal Justice or to the Laurel Rubin Farm Worker Justice Project. Donations may be sent to:
The Campaign for Equal Justice 1325 Fourth Avenue, Suite 1335 Seattle, WA 98101-2509
The Campaign for Equal Justice is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.
Your decision about whether to donate or not to donate will have no bearing on whether you receive help from the Northwest Justice Project. Thank you.
Our Vision: "Justice for All Low-Income People in Washington"
Welcome to the Northwest Justice Project (NJP), Washington’s publicly funded legal aid program. NJP is a not-for-profit statewide law firm that provides free civil legal assistance and representation to low-income people and communities throughout Washington. Each year NJP handles approximately 18,000 cases benefiting more that 40,000 people in need of critical legal assistance in cases affecting basic human needs such as family safety and security, housing preservation, protection of income, access to health care, education and other basic needs.
NJP’s mission is to secure justice through high quality legal advocacy that promotes the long-term well-being of low-income individuals, families, and communities. As a dynamic statewide law firm, we pursue our mission through legal advice and representation, community partnerships, and education to empower clients and combat injustice in all its forms.
NJP operates a toll-free intake and referral hotline called CLEAR (Coordinated Legal Education Advice and Referral). CLEAR serves as the statewide, centralized point of access for clients seeking free legal help, including advice, education, limited legal services, self-help materials and, where available, referrals for further representation. NJP attorneys in offices around the state provide assistance and direct representation in high priority, complex cases, including cases that address barriers to persons seeking access to our justice system, and also engage in community education efforts.
NJP also maintains WashingtonLawHelp, a public website containing an extensive library of legal resources, self-help materials, including necessary court forms areas of law needed most by low income persons, the great majority of whom are forced to appear in court unrepresented. In addition, NJP is an integral member and provides support for the Alliance for Equal Justice, Washington’s coordinated statewide civil legal aid delivery system, which brings together a network of volunteer attorney programs, specialty legal aid providers, and supporters working to ensure equal justice for all low-income communities in Washington.
Consistent with NJP’s commitment to combat injustice by improving access to our civil justice system, all NJP facilities are accessible and NJP provides language and sign interpreters for persons needing assistance to access our services. As a statewide organization whose staff, Board and clients are diverse in background, experience, culture and other qualities, NJP is also committed to a policy of equal opportunity and fosters a mutually respectful environment free of barriers and discriminatory practices in all its activities. NJP works to ensure its commitment to basic fairness by adherence to NJP’s Guiding Principles.
Code of EthicsAs a law enforcement officer, my fundamental obligation is to uphold the constitutional rights and freedoms of the people whom I have been sworn to protect.
I vow to perform all my duties in a professional and competent manner. I consider the ability to be courageous in the face of danger and exercise restraint in the use of my powers and authorities to be the ultimate public trust. I accept that I must consistently strive to achieve excellence in learning the necessary knowledge and skills associated with my duties. I will keep myself physically fit and mentally alert so that I am capable of performing my duties according to the standards of quality expected of my position.
I vow to be fully truthful and honest in my dealings with others. I deplore lies and half-truths that mislead or do not fully inform those who must depend upon my honesty. I will obey the very laws I am sworn to uphold. I will seek affirmative ways to comply with the standards of my agency and the lawful directions of my supervisors.
I vow to treat others with courtesy at all times. I consider it to be a professional weakness to allow another’s behavior to dictate my response. I will not allow others’ actions or failings to be my excuse for not performing my duties in a responsible, professional and expected manner.
I vow to empathize with the problems of people whom I come in daily contact. However, I cannot allow my personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence the discretionary authorities entrusted to me. I will affirmatively seek ways to avoid conflicts and potential conflicts of interest that could compromise my official authority or public image.
While I consider the way I choose to conduct my private affairs a personal freedom, I accept the responsibilities for my actions, as well as inactions, while on-duty or off-duty, when those actions bring disrepute on the public image of my employer, my fellow officers, and the law enforcement profession.
I hold the authority inherent in my position to be an affirmation of the public’s trust in me as a law enforcement officer. I do not take this trust lightly. As long as I remain in this position, I will dedicate myself to maintaining this trust and upholding all the ideals of the law enforcement profession.

The Complaint ProcessStage I - Preliminary InvestigationAll complaints begin in the preliminary investigative stage and may be submitted by any organization, association or person, including a member of the Commission. An investigative officer makes a prompt, discreet preliminary investigation and recommends to the Commission whether to proceed to the second stage. The complaint and additional information are sent to each Commission member for review before the Commission meets. After initial review and evaluation, the Commission may dismiss the complaint, continue investigation, or commence initial proceedings. At any time, the Commission may retain disciplinary counsel to assist in the proceeding.Stage II - Initial ProceedingsIf the Commission moves the matter to initial proceedings, the Commission notifies and provides the judge an opportunity to respond to the allegations. The Commission may dismiss the complaint if there are no sufficient grounds for further proceedings. At any time prior to final disposition, a matter may be resolved with a stipulation entered into in a public proceeding. The stipulation may impose any terms and conditions deemed appropriate by the Commission. A stipulation includes all material facts relating to the proceeding and the conduct of the judge. If the Commission determines there is probable cause to believe that the judge has violated a rule of judicial conduct or is suffering from a disability that seriously interferes with the performance of judicial duties, it orders filing of a statement of charges.Stage III - Statement of Charges and Fact-Finding Hearing The statement of charges is approved by the Commission. The statement of charges is public after the judge has been served. The judge has 21 days to file an answer. A fact-finding hearing is scheduled before the Commission after the answer is filed. The Commission members scheduled to participate in the fact-finding hearing receive no further factual information until the hearing is held or approval of a stipulation is sought. The judge has the opportunity to appear with or without counsel to defend against the charges. The fact-finding hearing is conducted publicly.Stage IV - Decision and Appeal Process At the conclusion of all formal proceedings, the Commission announces its decision in a public session. The Commission has the authority to dismiss the charges, or to admonish, reprimand or censure the judge. The Commission may also recommend the supreme court suspend or remove the judge. The Commission may recommend the supreme court retire a judge suffering from a disability. If the Commission decides to reprimand or censure a judge, the judge is required to appear personally before the Commission. Within 30 days after the Commission admonishes, reprimands or censures a judge, the judge may file an appeal de novo to the supreme court. If the Commission recommends removal, the judge is suspended pending a final determination by the supreme court.

In the event that you have exceeded your rate plan's allotted allowance you will be automatically charged usage fees for each fax, call, email or contact in excess of your monthly allowance. Unused allowances are not transferrable from month to month.
Payment of your Protus account balance is due monthly and, unless you have a qualified business account, must be made by the credit card designated by you for Protus use and transactions.

Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Protus reasonably could act on your notice.
Charges are to be paid on a monthly basis in the currency in which billed. A failure to pay the charges is a material breach of this Agreement and grounds for termination by Protus.

Each time you use the Services, or allow or cause the Services to be used, you agree and reaffirm that Protus is authorized to charge your designated card. Your card issuer's agreement governs your use of your designated card in connection with Protus, and you must refer to such agreement (not this Agreement) with respect to your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that Protus may (at its option) accumulate charges incurred during your monthly billing cycle and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each cycle, and that Protus may delay obtaining authorization from your card issuer until submission of the accumulated charge(s). This means that accumulated charges may appear on the statement you receive from your card issuer.
You agree that Protus may submit charges for your usage fees and recurring subscription fee each month or year, without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice (in accordance with Protus' verification procedures, as may be established by Protus from time to time in its sole discretion) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your designated card. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Protus reasonably could act on your notice. If you have any question regarding any charges that have been applied to your account, you must contact Protus' Customer Support within 30 days of the charge date.

If the Customer resides outside of Canada, the place of residency will be deemed not to be Canada unless Protus is notified otherwise.

Non-Canadian residents will be deemed not to have registered for G.S.T unless Protus is notified otherwise.
6a) For Campaigner these terms apply:
If you subscribed to a Contact Based Subscription Plan ("Contact Plan") the subscription fees are based on the highest number of subscribers or contacts in your account at any time. While your fees may increase as your contact list grows, the fees will not be reduced as the numbers of contacts diminish unless you contact Protus Customer Support. For the purposes of this Agreement, each unique email address will count as one subscriber or contact.
Should Protus deem your cumulative account activity, including but not limited to factors such as high send volume or large contact lists, to be detrimental to Protus' ability to provide Campaigner services to you or to other customers, Protus reserves the right in its sole discretion to move you to a Volume Subscription Plan.
Repeated uploading and removing of unique email addresses in an attempt to circumvent Protus' Fee Schedule and billing procedures is prohibited.
If you purchased a "Pay as you Go" plan you will be charged for emails on a per campaign basis.

11. RULES REGARDING FAX AND VOICE NUMBERS
You understand and agree that you are not the owner of any Protus fax or voice number (Protus Number) assigned to you by Protus. Ownership of any such Protus Number is vested solely in Protus (which will assign such number to you for your use during the term of this Agreement), who is the Customer of Record for such Protus Number. You understand and agree that following the termination of your Protus account for any reason, such Protus Number may be re-assigned immediately (although there is typically a transition period) to another customer, and you agree that neither Protus nor its Affiliates or Suppliers will be liable for damages (including consequential or special damages) arising out of any such re-assignment, and you hereby waive any claims with respect to any such re-assignment, whether based on contractual, tort or other grounds, even if Protus or any of its Affiliates or Suppliers have been advised of the possibility of damages.
BECAUSE PROTUS IS THE CUSTOMER OF RECORD OF ALL PROTUS NUMBER(S) PROVIDED AS PART OF THE SERVICES, PROTUS HAS CERTAIN RIGHTS WITH RESPECT SUCH PROTUS NUMBER(S), INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION CERTAIN RIGHTS RELATING TO PORTING OF SUCH PROTUS NUMBER(S) ("PORTING" IS CAUSING OR ATTEMPTING TO CAUSE NUMBER(S) TO BE TRANSFERRED, SWITCHED OR OTHERWISE MOVED TO ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER, TELEPHONE CARRIER OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY). AS THE CUSTOMER OF RECORD FOR ALL PROTUS NUMBER(S), PROTUS HAS THE DIRECT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE TELEPHONE COMPANY THAT PROVIDES THE UNDERLYING TELECOMMUNICATIONS THAT SUPPORT THE SERVICES YOU RECEIVE FROM PROTUS.

YOU AUTHORIZE PROTUS TO CHARGE YOUR ACCOUNT CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD OR TAKE ANY OTHER MEASURES REQUIRED TO COLLECT THIS PAYMENT AND TO CAUSE THE PROTUS NUMBER(S) TO BE RETURNED TO PROTUS. YOU AGREE THAT THIS PAYMENT REPRESENTS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES REFLECTING A REASONABLE MEASURE OF THE ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED HARM, DAMAGES CAUSED AND ADMINISTRATIVE FEES INCURRED BY PROTUS FROM SUCH VIOLATION IN LIGHT OF THE DIFFICULTIES OF PROOF OF LOSS AND THAT THIS PAYMENT IS NOT A PENALTY. SOME NON-U.S. JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS TO BE PLACED ON YOUR RIGHT TO PORT THE PROTUS NUMBER ASSIGNED TO YOU, SO SOME OF THESE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY IF THE PROTUS NUMBER(S) ASSIGNED TO YOU IS/ ARE LOCATED IN SUCH A JURISDICTION.

YOU HEREBY AUTHORIZE PROTUS TO CHARGE YOUR CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD IN THE APPLICABLE AMOUNT FOR SUCH ADMINISTRATIVE FEE. THE PORTING PROCESS CAN BE LENGTHY; IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAINTAIN YOUR SERVICES DURING THE PORTING PROCESS, YOU MUST MAINTAIN YOUR ACCOUNT IN AN ACTIVE STATUS AND NOT TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT UNTIL THE PORTING OUT IS COMPLETE. REGARDLESS OF WHEN THE PORT OUT IS COMPLETE, YOU WILL CONTINUE TO BE RESPONSIBLE TO PAY ALL APPLICABLE ACCOUNT FEES WITH RESPECT TO THE TELEPHONE NUMBERS UNTIL YOU FORMALLY TERMINATE YOUR SERVICE. IF YOU FAIL TO SATISFY ANY OF THE FOREGOING REQUIREMENTS, PROTUS SHALL REMAIN THE CUSTOMER OF RECORD OF THE NUMBER(S) AND YOU ARE EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM CAUSING OR ATTEMPTING TO CAUSE SUCH NUMBER(S) TO BE TRANSFERRED TO ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER, TELEPHONE CARRIER OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY. PROTUS ALSO RETAINS THE RIGHT TO RECLAIM THE NUMBER(S) FROM YOU AFTER THE NUMBER(S) ARE PORTED OUT IN CONTRAVENTION WITH THESE REQUIREMENTS AND TO CHARGE YOUR CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD THE $500 CAD (OR THE EQUIVALENT IN LOCAL CURRENCY) IN LIQUIDATED DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT EVEN IF YOU SATISFY THE REQUIREMENTS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 11 (a), TECHNICAL OR PROCEDURAL DIFFICULTIES OR INTERRUPTIONS MAY OCCUR WHEN ATTEMPTING TO PORT OUT THESE NUMBERS (E.G. WHEN NO PORTING AGREEMENT EXISTS BETWEEN YOUR AND OUR TELEPHONE CARRIER OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON) AND SUCH DIFFICULTIES OR INTERRUPTIONS MAY PREVENT YOUR NEW CARRIER FROM PORTING THE NUMBERS. PROTUS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH TECHNICAL OR PROCEDURAL DIFFICULTIES OR INTERRUPTIONS AND YOU WILL RECEIVE NO REFUND OF YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE FEE.
b. Reassignment of Telephone Numbers
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT FOLLOWING THE TERMINATION OF YOUR SERVICES FOR ANY REASON, THE PROTUS NUMBER(S) ASSIGNED TO YOU MAY BE IMMEDIATELY RE-ASSIGNED TO ANOTHER CUSTOMER. YOU AGREE THAT NEITHER PROTUS NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES OR SUPPLIERS WILL BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES (INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF ANY SUCH RE-ASSIGNMENT, AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY CLAIMS WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH RE-ASSIGNMENT, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACTUAL, TORT OR OTHER GROUNDS, EVEN IF PROTUS OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES OR SUPPLIERS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.
You further understand and agree that Protus may, from time to time, need to change the Protus Number assigned to you (whether due to an area code split or any other reason whether outside or within Protus' control). You agree that Protus and its Affiliates and Suppliers will not be liable for damages (including consequential or special damages) arising out of any such change in the Protus Number assigned to you, and you hereby waive any claims with respect to any such change, whether based in contract, tort or other grounds, even if Protus or any of its Affiliates or Suppliers has been advised of the possibility of damages.
You hereby acknowledge and agree that Protus, as owner of all Protus Numbers, has any and all rights to assert any and all legal claims available against any third party as a result of your receipt of any unsolicited faxes including, but not limited to claims under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, the Telecommunications Act, the Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules, PIPEDA, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 and, to the extent you do have any rights to bring any such claims, you hereby assign any and all such rights to Protus.
c. No Right to Charge Third Party Services to Protus Numbers
You agree that you are not authorized to charge services provided to you or at your request to the Protus Number assigned to you by Protus and that you will not request or otherwise cause any third-party service provider to charge any such services to such number. You are responsible for any such charges, and any such charges will give Protus the right to immediately terminate your Protus account without notice.
Protus understands that receipt of unsolicited faxes can impair your use of our Services. Accordingly, Protus may develop means to prevent the distribution and receipt of unsolicited fax advertisements to our customers. At Protus' option and without further notice, Protus may use technologies and procedures, such as filters, that may terminate such unsolicited fax advertisements without delivering them. You may flag a fax as spam using the tools in MyFaxCentral.
If you believe that you are in receipt of an unsolicited fax advertisement, you should take the following two steps:
a) If the fax contains a telephone number, fax number, or other contact information to "unsubscribe" from receipt of additional junk faxes, please do so; and
b) Please go to the following web page to submit a suspect fax to Protus for investigation by inserting the required information and including a copy of the offending fax: http://ww.
We will investigate your submission and determine if the fax/voicemail number referenced in the spam email or spam fax is a Protus Number. If it is, we will attempt to prevent such faxes from reaching your account.

Disclaimer - The posting of stories, commentaries, reports, documents and links (embedded or otherwise) on this site does not in any way, shape or form, implied or otherwise, necessarily express or suggest endorsement or support of any of such posted material or parts therein.
The myriad of facts, conjecture, perspectives, viewpoints, opinions, analyses, and information in the articles, stories and commentaries posted on this site range from cutting edge hard news and comment to extreme and unusual perspectives. We choose not to sweep uncomfortable material under the rug - where it can grow and fester. We choose not to censor skewed logic and uncomfortable rhetoric. These things reflect the world as it now is - for better and worse. We present multiple facts, perspectives, viewpoints, opinions, analyses, and information. As with all controversies, we stand ready to post any and all rebuttals and responses from people mentioned in the material we post.
We are not going to censor the news and information here. That is for you to do. We strongly recommend not 'assuming' anything. Read, consider, and make your own informed decisions. People 'assumed' the Warren Commission report was accurate. It was not. People 'assumed' the Federal Government would never conduct biochemical experiments on the general populace. But it did, by the score. People 'assumed' the world was once flat.... it is not flat as you know ?
Journalism is (or used to be) the profession of gathering and presenting a broad panorama of news about the events of our times and presenting it to readers for their own consideration. We believe in the intelligence, judgment and wisdom of our readers to discern for themselves among the data which appears on this site that which is valid and worthy...or otherwise.
The Idea of a Free Press in America is one that we hold in the highest regard. We believe in bringing our site visitors the widest possible array of information that comes to our attention. We have great trust and respect for the American people, and our worldwide audience, and believe them to be fully-capable of making their own decisions and discerning their own realities.
Among the thousands of articles posted here for your consideration, there will doubtless be some that you find useless, and possibly offensive, but we believe you will be perceptive enough to realize that even the stories you disagree with have some value in terms of promoting your own further self-definition and insight. Our site is a smorgasbord of material...take what you wish and click or scroll right past that which doesn't interest you.
We suggest you don't make 'assumptions' about our official position on issues that are discussed here. That is not what this site is about. We believe it to be unwise to sweep controversy under the carpet. We also firmly believe people should not only read material which they agree with.
