Tools for Practitioners, Clients, and the Public

Pro Bono Resources. The bar strongly encourages Florida lawyers to work, without compensation, in the public interest. It publishes this set of guidelines for lawyers on its expectations for how they should handle pro bono work. The essential message: treat every pro bono client exactly the same as every paying client. One way to qualify as a pro bono client is to be able to demonstrate indigent status under Florida statutory law. Basically, a person must have income less than 200% of the federal poverty level, as well as limited non-homestead assets. Litigants who want to qualify should fill out this indigent status form and the clerk of court will make the determination, which allows various court services like filing fees and service of process to be provided, regardless of ability to pay.
