Bakit po ang public attorney's office ay para sa mahihirap lamang? Paano naman ang mga nasa employed sector na hindi kalakihan ng sweldo. mahal po ang legal counsel at mga may kaya lang ang makakakuha nito

anybody can avail of the PAO's services provided you can really show proof that you can't afford to hire a lawyer's services... It's open to all... And i have to share to you this, there are also good PAO lawyers around who opted to choose to employ themselves there instead of ioining  big law firms....

aside from that there is a new rule issued by the SC, for lawyers mandated to provide free legal assistance. the hour that they devote to such apostolic work is credited to them.

General Rule: You don't have to be the lowest of the poor just to avail the services of the public attorney's office...

I am not sure on this pero sa pagkakaalam ko eh NLRC is like an appellate court with regard to employment problem with regard sa assistance sa union dapat ito nalo na pag hindi privy ang concern, however one can always seek assistance with the sec. of labor by virtue of his visitorial powers.

Sino ang mga Qualified?

Under R. A. 9406, the PAO shall independently discharge its mandate to render, free of charge, legal representation, assistance and counselling to indigent persons in criminal, civil, labor, administrative and other quasi-judicial cases according to current PAO journal.

So it is clear that those who are qualified to avail the PAO service are the 'Indigent'.


 
To ensure that only those qualified shall be extended free legal assistance, the applicant shall be required to execute an Affidavit of Indigency and to submit any of the following documents:
 

1.Latest Income Tax Return or pay slip or other proofs of income; or
 
2. Certificate of Indigency from the Department of Social Welfare and Development, its local District Office, or the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office having jurisdiction over the residence of the applicant; or
 
3. Certificate of Indigency from the Barangay Chairman having jurisdiction over the residence of the applicant.
 
PAO lawyers and personnel shall exercise diligence in ascertaining the indigency qualification of said applicant/s.
 

Cases Which May be Provisionally Accepted

Cases Which May be Provisionally Accepted by PAO lawyers pending verification of the applicant’s indigency and an evaluation of the merit of his/her case in the following instances:
 
1. When a warrant of arrest has been issued and assistance is needed in filing a Motion to Post Bailbond or Reduction thereof for his/her provisional liberty;
 
2. When a person is arrested and/or detained, and appropriate immediate legal action is necessary to protect his/her rights (Sec. 3, Art. 2, MC No. 003, S.2008) ;
 
3. When a pleading has to be filed immediately to avoid adverse effects to the applicant;
 
4. When an appeal or petition for certiorari or prohibition has to be perfected or filed immediately;
 
5. When the PAO lawyer is appointed by the court as counsel de oficio to represent the defendant during the trial of the case, provided, however, that if a subsequent investigation discloses that the client is not an indigent, the lawyer should respectfully request the court to relieve him/her by filing a Motion for Withdrawal of Appearance from the case;
 
6. When the PAO lawyer is designated on the spot as counsel de oficio for the purpose only of arraignment, pre-trial or promulgation of decision;
 
7.  In cases involving violence against women and their children under Republic Act No. 9262, where immediate preparation and filing of pleading/s is necessary to avoid adverse effects to the victims, except when there is conflict of interest (Sec. 2, Art. IV, MC No. 08, S. 2007) ;
 
8. In cases involving Children In Conflict with the Law (CICLs), where there is an immediate need of counsel (Sec. 2, Art. IV, MC No. 07, S. 2007);
 
9.  In cases involving credit card holder/s considered as “delinquent” by the credit card company, and immediate action is necessary; and
 
10. Cases which require provisional assistance pursuant to Section 3 of R.A. 9406 (Section 14-A Chapter 5, Title III, Book IV of Executive Order No. 292, otherwise known as the “Administrative Code of 1987”), to wit:
