Legal Services Honored with Pro Bono Award
Legal Services is the 2020 recipient of the L. Michael Roffino Pro Bono Award, sponsored by the Florida Bar Solo and Small Firm Section for the Partners for Equal Justice Campaign. Thank you to the Florida Bar Solo and Small Firm Section and all the law firm partners that made the Project a success!
The Partners for Equal Justice Campaign is a friendly competition that encourages partners at law firms to lead by example and accept at least one direct representation pro bono case. The impact of law firm partners demonstrating a commitment to pro bono work is astounding. In the first year of the campaign over 50 law firm partners accepted the pro bono challenge with 41 law firms participating and 395 families getting access to justice.
