PRO BONO CHALLENGE – ARE YOU IN?

Now is the time to renew your commitment to pro bono. All members of the Florida Bar are encouraged to perform a minimum of 20 hours of pro bono service per year and to report their hours to the Florida Bar.  Our goal is for every attorney in our circuit to provide a minimum of 20 hours of pro bono service and/or contribute to the program.  What better way to do so than by taking a case from Dade Legal Aid/Put Something Back Pro Bono Project (“PSB”)? If you are unable to take a case, please consider donating in lieu of accepting a case. To become a Put Something Back Pro Bono Attorney and fulfill your professional aspirational goals by handling one of our pro bono cases, please go to the Register Tab to enroll online. We currently need pro bono attorneys to help address the surge in clients impacted by COVID-19 facing Bankruptcy, Collection, Domestic Violence, Family Law, Housing, Immigration, Insurance, Probate and Will Drafting. However, if you are unable to accept a case, please send Dade Legal Aid your “buy-in” donation in the amount of $350.00 to fulfill your pro bono commitment so that we may continue helping those in need of our assistance. Thank you for your generous support and participation.  We look forward to seeing you again soon!
