Programs can offer Free Legal Aid Florida assistance and legal advice and in some cases legal representation for individuals who qualify in the sunshine state.


Non-profit civil law firms are willing to donate their time and expertise and provide free legal services to low income residents in the state of Florida providing local attorney’s assistance and equal access to justice for those who cannot afford to pay for legal representation.

These organizations have attorneys, law students, paralegals and other legal professionals dedicating their time and money to provide work pro bono, meaning “for the public good”, or without charge.

Low-income Florida residents can seek pro-bono legal help and assistance for issues ranging from:

Adoption, Child Custody, Dissolution of Marriage, AIDS/HIV, Domestic Violence, Elder Law, Housing, Individual Rights, Termination of Parental Rights, Public Benefits, Employment, Real Estate, Wills, Federal Civil, Bankruptcy, Immigration and Criminal Matters.

For a person to qualify for free legal aid assistance depends on factors such as:

  • Location
  • Health status
  • Safety
  • Must be low income (below the federal poverty line)
  • Case must be of a civil nature
  • The agency staff and resources
  • Legal issue must be covered by the agency or law firm

This website was created to help the community by providing up-to-date information about legal aid firms and organizations advocating for the indigent families and low income people.
