What We Do
Helping Hands Who Care
The Lee County Legal Aid Society, Inc. is a private non-profit corporation. The Society was formed on March 27, 1967 by the Lee County Bar Association. The Society is not a government agency. We receive funding form Lee County, United Way, the Florida Bar Foundation, Lee County Bar Association and contributions from generous donors.
We help to Balance the Scales of Justice.
The Society is managed by the Executive Director and overseen by the Board of Directors. Our staff consists of three attorneys, two paralegals, one legal assistant and a receptionist-court runner.
We provide representation in the area of Family Law to residents of Lee County with limited income. People may qualify for our free legal services if they meet the Federal Poverty financial guideline requirements.
Types of cases we handle
- Divorce (dissolution of marriage in cases where there are minor children)
- Private Dependency (abused, abandoned and neglected children)
- Step-parent adoptions
Our trained legal team of attorneys and legal assistants provides quality representation throughout the entire family law proceeding. However, we do not represent anyone in proceedings after a final judgment has been entered.
We work hard so that we can help you.
We ask that you please “Help Us Help Those Who Can’t Afford to Help Themselves” by making a financial contribution to our Society helping to ensure equal justice for all.
