Volunteer lawyers are the heroes in civil legal aid, donating their own time, knowledge, and professional resources to citizens facing desperate circumstances.
When you take a case, you make an impact far beyond the case itself. You make Leon County a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
To help, please take these simple steps:
1. Learn more about how case requests to LAF are vetted and triaged.
2. Review case requests by urgency level, practice area, and date help was requested.
NOTE: Though our urgent cases are picked up quickly, we have some clients who have been waiting over 4 months for help. Even if they receive a phone call for counsel or advice rather than full representation, they’ll be grateful for your assistance.
3. Email LAF Volunteer Coordinator Jason Leong to learn more and either call a client or offer full representation.
