Triage Volunteers Review Cases

Short on time but want to help? Become a “triage volunteer” and help LAF determine case urgency to get people faster, more effective civil legal help. Triage volunteers also look for cases that may be better served with a phone call than for waiting for pro bono representation, or that are likely not large time commitment cases.

Gather a few lawyer friends and plan a triage date at the LAF office… you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish in 2 hours!

Thanks to Jana McConnaughhay, Shannon Novey, & Corinne Porcher!

Please visit our Volunteer Resource and Hospitality Center 

Thanks to sponsorship from the Tallahassee Bar, LAF invites volunteers and supporters to join us anytime for a cup of coffee. The Volunteer Resource and Hospitality Center is a great place to relax, meet your colleagues, and see what’s going on with LAF.

Location: Robert M. Ervin Lawyers’ Commons, 301 S. Monroe St., Suite 108, just inside the Monroe St. entrance to the Leon County Courthouse.
