Five years after Bar launched Florida Free Legal Answers, the numbers speak for themselves.

More than 1,000 volunteer attorneys in Florida have answered more than 18,000 civil legal questions submitted by more than 16,000 indigent and low-income citizens since May 1, 2017.

“Wonderful news,” says Gunster managing shareholder Bill Schifino, who guided the project to approval as Florida Bar president in 2016. “That’s 16,000 low-income clients who otherwise wouldn’t have had their legal issues addressed!”
