Free malpractice insurance, translation services, help maintaining client communication, expert mentors for unfamiliar practice areas — those are just a few of the resources available to Florida Bar members who perform pro bono service through a legal aid organization.

“What we’re doing is eliminating excuses to go out there and give back, and really feel proud of the privilege you have to practice law,” said Ft. Lauderdale attorney Juan Carlos Arias, who represents attorneys in Bar disciplinary matters.

Arias was a panelist for The Florida Bar Winter Meeting presentation “Pro Bono Service: Trending Needs and Ethical Considerations,” a free CLE sponsored by the Pro Bono Legal Services Committee and InReach CE.
