Disaster Relief Hotlines
Dade Legal Aid encourages firms to provide invaluable pro bono service by simply signing up with the Florida Bar YLD, in conjunction with the ABA Young Lawyers Section and FEMA, to volunteer with the Disaster Relief Hotline. Florida Bar members eligible to practice may volunteer to provide basic civil legal services for people who cannot otherwise afford legal representation in non-fee generating cases. To volunteer please complete the sign up form and review the Disaster Assistance Manual for Legal Services Advocates. Volunteers may assist by returning calls placed to the YLD’s 1-800 hotline or at FEMA centers. To volunteer, you simply need a willingness to serve, and have a basic understanding of common problems experienced by disaster victims. The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division Disaster Legal Assistance Hotline coordinates volunteers seeking to assist disaster survivors with legal issues.

2023 Hurricane Season
Looking ahead to what could be a busy hurricane season in Florida, please volunteer with our YLD in need of volunteers to assist disaster survivors in the aftermath of these life-changing events. Please consider offering your time by providing free legal services to fellow Floridians in their time of need.
We understand you may have concerns regarding conflicts of interest in assisting survivors with legal matters related to a federally declared disaster. However, in 2017, The Florida Supreme Court adopted Rule 4-6.6 that alleviates some of these concerns by easing the application of the conflict of interest rules in these situations. For more information on this regarding the adoption of Rule 4-6.6, please see the .
