Pro Bono Opportunities
Legal Aid of Manasota is here to help people when they have no other option or place to turn. Our lawyers aren’t just working on a legal document or court dispute – they are giving a person or a family a fair chance to get justice.
For every low income individual who receives legal assistance in Sarasota and Manatee counties, many more are turned away because of a severe lack of resources. Nationwide, only 20 percent of low-income people who need legal help get it. The need is huge, the demand is great and the funding is dwindling every year. With your help, we can increase access to justice for all.
