Florida Legal Services advocates for vulnerable populations and their whole legal needs. Our attorneys practice in all of Florida's state and federal courts.
We work on the most pressing and current issues faced by low-income and disenfranchised Floridians and embrace a Community Lawyering model of law practice.
We affect systemic change for:
Low-wage earners and disenfranchised job seekers
People in need of health care and prescription drugs
Domestic violence survivors
Children with special needs and at-risk youth
People seeking safe, fair and affordable housing
Institutionalized people (Florida Institutional Legal Services Project)
Immigrants and migrant workers (Migrant Farmworker Justice Project)
People facing racial, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation discrimination
Mission Statement: Florida Legal Services is a statewide leader in advancing economic, social and racial justice. We advocate for poor, vulnerable and hard to reach people through impact litigation, legislative and administrative advocacy, education and strategic partnerships.
