MIAMI, FL—Legal Services of Greater Miami in support of the Florida Community Development Legal (FCDL) Project is pleased to announce that it has partnered with numerous law firms in Florida and Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG) to launch a statewide remote legal clinic to help small businesses and nonprofits weather the economic impact of COVID-19.
L4GG is a nonprofit working with law firms across the country to develop these small business legal advice clinics, which began in partnership with Kirkland and the City Bar Justice Center in New York City. The Florida clinic is led in partnership with Nelson Mullins law firm.
Qualifying small businesses or nonprofits with 25 or fewer employees can submit their legal question using an online form located on Legal Services website at https://www.legalservicesmiami.org/. Transactional pro bono lawyers will be matched to offer a free 45-minute phone or virtual legal consultation, helping Florida small business owners or nonprofits navigate the CARES Act, or questions related to employment, contracts, commercial leases, insurance, and insolvency issues.
