“Equipped to Serve”
Our theme this year is “Equipped to Serve.” The Highlands County Bar Association “equips” our members with valuable information by featuring dynamic and experienced professionals at our monthly Membership Meetings to discuss the legal topics you chose in the HCBA Survey (register). Throughout the year, we also encourage each member to “serve” by donating their time and expertise to our local Legal Aid.
Every day, low-income Floridians face a multitude of legal challenges that go unresolved - there aren't enough civil legal aid and public interest attorneys to meet our communities' needs. Pro Bono Attorneys like YOU can help us increase the impact and difference that we make in the 10th Judicial Circuit of Florida. Heart of Florida Legal Aid welcomes pro bono assistance from law firms, individual attorneys, law students, and other volunteers.
