  • How do I schedule an appointment with an attorney?

    There are two ways to schedule an appointment with an attorney from Legal Aid.

    • Visit the Self-Help Center in person
    • Call 239-533-5000
      and speak to a Customer Service representative
  • Can I get forms without meeting with an attorney?

    Yes. Visit the Forms Library for a complete list of forms. You may also purchase printed forms and packets at the Self-Help Center. 
  • Will the Self-Help Center attorney represent me in court?

    No. The attorneys will only assist with the Florida Bar pro se forms and aid in the understanding of the overall legal process. They will assist with any pleadings the person has received.

  • What does "pro se" mean?

    Pro se is a legal term for people who represent themselves in court without an attorney. 

  • Is an Appointment Necessary?

    It is not necessary but is highly recommended. We understand that some issues require immediate action, and we will try to accommodate walk-ins. However, the appointment calendar can fill very quickly. You will save time if you make an appointment in advance.
