JOIN Broward Lawyers Care Today!

There are 8200 attorneys in Broward County, but only one Legal Aid attorney for every 10,300 people living in poverty. The public interest attorneys at Legal Aid Service of Broward County and Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida need your help today to meet the ever growing, critical legal needs of the underserved population of Broward County.

Broward Lawyers Care is the recognized agency for administering Florida’s Pro Bono Plan. Rule 4-6.1, Rules Regulating the Florida Bar, describes lawyer’s professional responsibility for pro bono service. The professional responsibility may be discharged by: 1) annually providing at least 20 hours of pro bono legal service to the poor; or 2) making an annual contribution of at least $350 to a legal aid organization.

Every year Broward Lawyers Care sends out their campaign piece along with a participation form to be completed and returned to Broward Lawyers Care thus committing to the fulfillment of their professional obligation to Pro Bono. While direct representation is the most common method for attorneys to fulfill their pro bono obligation, the importance of financial contributions should not be overlooked.
