Take a Case

Why does Karen Walker of Holland & Knight volunteer?

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 pro bono 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 Ronnie Barker to learn more and either call a client or offer full representation.
