However, access to legal assistance in civil legal cases for low-income individuals can be difficult or nearly impossible, with insurmountable hourly lawyer fees and the impossibility of understanding our complicated legal system.

This is what makes the services provided by Legal Services of North Florida so important to our communities. LSNF provides pro bono civil legal services to low-income residents throughout North Florida, including 11 of the 12 counties that were impacted by Hurricane Michael.
