Sign Up for a Free Personal Legal Consultation

The benefit of having expert guidance is within reach with Lee County Legal Aid Society’s FREE “Self Help” 20-minute Legal Clinic – a confidential Zoom session with a panel of qualified attorneys. No pre-qualification is necessary for Lee County Legal Aid Society’s FREE 20-minute Legal Clinic, but registration is required, and we cannot advise individuals who already have an attorney or if a conflict exists with our office. There is no deposit or retainer fee as Lee County Legal Aid Society never charges for legal services.

All appointments are currently virtual and conducted on the Zoom platform. To schedule an appointment, please visit Select “Fort Myers Court“, then click “Legal Aid Appointments“.
