Broward Lawyers Care is the pro bono project within Legal Aid Service of Broward County and Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida and is the recognized pro bono program in Broward County, Florida. Broward Lawyers Care (BLC) was formed in 1983 as a joint effort of the Broward County Bar Association and Legal Aid.
BLC enables busy attorneys to make a difference in their community through pro bono work. BLC manages the administrative issues so that the attorney’s time is spent directly on the clients’ legal needs. Services at Legal Aid are designed to help clients build self-sufficiency. When you help a Legal Aid client through our pro bono program, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are part of a process that is geared toward helping people in need turn their lives around.
