Attorney Agreement
I understand that Tubman’s Vision is: “Thriving people, healthy relationships, peaceful communities.” Our Mission is: “To advance opportunities for change so that every person can experience safety, hope, and healing.” I agree to provide services to Tubman clients in accordance with that mission and in a respectful, empowering manner.

Licensing and Legal Ethics
I am currently authorized to practice law in Minnesota and in other states indicated on the first page of the attorney application. I have not been publicly disciplined by the Minnesota Supreme Court or the Lawyers Board of Professional Responsibility or similar boards in other states, except as follows:​

I have the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness and preparation reasonably necessary to represent clients (in accordance with Rule 1.1 of the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct) in the areas I have indicated on the volunteer and referral information sheet.

Tubman Materials
I acknowledge that outlines, handouts, brochures and other materials developed by Tubman staff in connection with Tubman legal information sessions, Law Clinic, Self-Represented Legal Clinic, and other services are the property of Tubman. I agree that I will not use those materials (or substantially similar materials) except in connection with Tubman services.

Services of Volunteer Attorneys
I will honor my volunteer commitments by providing services when scheduled, except in emergencies. I will give the Legal Services staff a minimum of 48 hours notice of cancellation when schedule changes are necessary. It is my responsibility to keep the Legal Services staff informed of any problems with my volunteer commitment or duties.

I understand that:
A commitment to low-income clients receiving fair and competent legal representation is a prerequisite for participation in the Legal Services Program. I have such a commitment.

I may not represent clients seen in the Law Clinic unless I take their case pro bono. I cannot solicit clients from the Law Clinic setting.

Services of Referral Attorneys
As a referral attorney with Tubman Legal Services, I will provide legal representation to clients referred to me by Tubman and will commit to reduce my fee, offer a discount, use a sliding fee scale, or use other means to make legal services accessible to women. I currently expect to do that as follows:
