In honor of Pro Bono Month, the Volusia County Bar Association has teamed up with Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida (CLSMF), the primary provider of free legal aid in Central Florida, to host a Free Legal Advice Clinic for Civil Matters. The clinic will take place at the CLSMF Volusia County office, 128 Orange Ave. Daytona Beach, on Oct. 28 from 1 to 7 p.m. This free clinic is open to all residents of Central Florida.

Individuals who have civil legal issues including, but not limited to, consumer, public benefits or housing and foreclosure, will be able to meet one-on-one with experienced attorneys. These attorneys have volunteered to work for free as part of CLSMF’s Volunteer Lawyers Project.

All attendees are encouraged to take any papers related to their legal matter, any court paperwork that has been received or filed, a list of questions to ask attorneys regarding the legal matter, a state issued driver’s license or ID and a Resident Alien Card if not a U.S. citizen.

Participants do not have to be income-eligible for legal services to attend the free clinic, but will need to complete an intake upon arrival. The application process will begin at 1 p.m. and attorneys will start seeing clients at 3 p.m. The clinic is open on a first-come, first-served basis, so participants are encouraged to arrive with ample time to complete an intake.
