Legal Services of Greater Miami thanks Jose Casal, Esq., Partner at Holland & Knight, for his dedication to our clients who turn to us when they need help accessing housing, education and healthcare - the essentials of personal safety and well-being. As a member of the Chesterfield Smith Society, his support ensures a “level playing field” for everyone and that the rights of the most vulnerable among us are protected with the highest quality of legal advocacy.
“Holland & Knight’s founder, Chesterfield Smith, always urged the firm’s lawyers and staff to “Be Somebody” and “Do Good”, and in particular to help those of us less fortunate and in need of legal help. I know the lawyers, staff and partners of Legal Services do these things every day in representing their clients. It is very important to me that I do my small part to help Legal Services accomplish these wonderful goals.” –Jose Casal
The Chesterfield Smith Society is an annual giving society that continues the legacy of the great Chesterfield Smith (1917-2003), a lifelong advocate for Legal Services for the Poor. Chesterfield encouraged all lawyers to “do good” by supporting organizations that work to ensure that all persons have access to justice in our civil legal system without regard to their ability to pay.
