Judges Joining Forces banner 

Did you know that in Florida there is one civil legal aid lawyer for every 10,000 people in poverty? As a judge you can truly appreciate how important it is for those in need in our community to have access to civil legal assistance.

Our Judges Joining Forces campaign gives judges the opportunity to support Bay Area Legal Services and ensure access to justice for the many qualified legal aid applicants seeking advice and representation for basic legal needs.

It’s easy to join our Judges Joining Forces campaign - simply click on the DONATE NOW button at the top of the page and make a donation today. By making a contribution today, you ensure access to justice for the poor in our community tomorrow.

Thank you to all of our judges for their generous support.
