How we work

an integrated approach

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

Vulnerable seniors

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
