Members of the CAC and other Bar committees have spearheaded the creation of resources, including the How to Hire an Attorney resource, which covers the essentials when hiring a lawyer, including when and how to find a lawyer, different types of lawyers, and what to do if you aren’t happy with the lawyer you’ve chosen. The Florida Bar and its legal community are committed to improving access to justice. If you need legal aid, please visit Pro Bono & Legal Aid.
