Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Legal Aid Foundation of Tallahassee, donating their time, energy, knowledge, and resources. The Foundation continuously seeks new ways to:
Match volunteers to their desire to make an impact
Offer volunteers the resources they need to be successful
Thank our volunteers publicly and privately
Recognize the organizations who support volunteerism to Legal Aid
Offer a variety of volunteer opportunities based on time available, interests and expertise
How would you like to be involved?
Let us know through our volunteer interest survey.
How You Can Help
As a Lawyer
Pro Bono Lawyer
Make an impact far beyond the case alone. Time commitment varies.*
Limited Representation through Mediation
If the case doesn’t settle, your commitment is done. Great for those with limited time ability.*
Advice and Counsel
Be a volunteer attorney at a Mobile Law for All clinic and provide 30 minute consultations. Also great for those with limited time ability; these clinics are held once a month for two hours. Sign up one month at a time!
Pro Bono Legal Consult
Call a client seeking pro bono representation to learn more about the case. You may be able to help in just 30 minutes.
Offer your civil expertise to young/new volunteer lawyers by phone, email or through Thunderdome Tallahassee.
Legal Case Triage
Attend a case triage meeting to review pro bono requests.
Teach or sponsor a CLE or GAL training for lawyer volunteers.
2Ls can assist with Mobile Law for All or at the LAF office with Intake. 3Ls can assist the Pro Bono Coordinator and volunteer attorneys.
As a Community Member
Event Planning and Participation
Help LAF take our work beyond the office. Short term, high impact.
Social Media Ambassador
Like, share, join, retweet… anytime, anywhere!
Invite Legal Aid to speak to your professional/civic organization, school, church, or other group. You may be the key to new volunteers and supporters.
