Servicemember Attorney Volunteers (SMAV)

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) provides active-duty servicemembers with protections in civil cases on a limited representation basis. In cases when servicemembers are facing default judgment, the court must appoint an attorney to locate and contact them to determine how they’d like to proceed with their case. Initiated by the Utah State Courts and implemented by the Utah State Bar, Servicemember Attorney Volunteers (SMAV) program seeks volunteer attorneys to provide limited representation to servicemembers in this situation.
