Now lawyers in Miami-Dade County who want to volunteer their services have an easy way to find the right case through an interactive website funded by The Florida Bar Foundation.
The Florida Pro Bono Matters website is being piloted right now through with Legal Services of Greater Miami, Americans for Immigrant Justice, and CABA Pro Bono Legal Services. All are displaying the cases for which they are seeking pro bono attorneys. The goal is to involve virtually all of the county’s pro bono programs for civil legal aid.
FloridaProBonoMatters.org, which can also be accessed through FloridaProBono.org, serves as a marketing tool for specific pro bono cases. Lawyers can filter available cases by practice area, location, and participating organization, and with the click of a button, they can register their interest in taking on a particular case.
