Pro Bono Opportunities
With over 500,000 low income individuals and families in our community, the need for free legal services cannot be met by Legal Services staff alone. Pro Bono resources are critical to supplement the work we do and to help address the many unmet legal needs. Legal Services welcomes pro bono assistance from law firms, individual attorneys, law students, and other volunteers, and provides the necessary training and mentoring to support those volunteers. We also provide malpractice insurance for our pro bono volunteers. For more information contact JCassidy@legalservicesmiami.org
