Chair's October Message

Celebrate Pro Bono Week with the Appellate Practice Section

Did you know this week is National Pro Bono Week? This annual event helps to focus attention to the need for lawyers to engage in pro bono work and to thank those lawyers who have donated their time and talent to pro bono causes. This year, our Section has plenty to celebrate!

Positive Results: Through the great work of our Pro Bono Committee, Appellate Practice Section members continue to handle pro bono appeals in family law and dependency matters, landlord-tenant cases, and other civil disputes around the state. Our volunteers have racked up more than 4,415 hours on behalf of the Guardian ad Litem Program alone, drafting answer briefs and presenting appellate arguments in cases that have led to adoptions, permanent guardianships, and parental reunifications. Appellate lawyers making a genuine impact for hundreds of Floridians in need!
