Ask a Lawyer Day

AOC Affiliate: St Petersburg Bar Association Young Lawyers Section

Contact Info: Erica K. Smith // (727) 822-2033 // esmith@fishersauls.com

Project Description: This would be a dedicated time when people who cannot afford an attorney can ask questions, receive general information, learn about their rights and responsibilities, obtain help completing pro se forms, and obtain referrals, if appropriate, to local pro bono legal organizations. It would also provide an opportunity for our attorneys to find one or more cases that they are willing to take pro bono, in the spirit of the One Client, One Attorney, One Promise campaign of the Florida Bar and Florida Supreme Court. Our target demographic for this service day would be individuals who may have too much income or too many assets to qualify for help from our local legal aid organizations but who are living paycheck to paycheck and cannot afford full-priced legal services.
