The demand is greater than the supply. The Lee County Legal Aid Society is limited in the number and the types of cases it takes, and that’s where you come in. By taking pro bono referrals, you extend the work of Legal Aid even further, and you serve community members who would otherwise have no access to legal representation.
Taking cases from Legal Aid helps fulfill your annual pro bono service obligation (Florida Bar Rule 4.6-1). Your firm’s name is listed here on this site with a link to the firm’s website, and your firm receives a certificate of appreciation for display in your office.
Your name could be here. Call us at 239-334-6118 or email Nanci DuBois at email@example.com to become a Referral Partner, and join us at noon on every third Thursday of the month for Lee County Bar Association Pro Bono Committee meetings at the Green Cup Café, 1412 Dean St., No. 100, Fort Myers.
