An important component of Celebrate Pro Bono Week in Jacksonville is the “Accept One Case” display board , which will be making its debut. It is anticipated that the board will become a mainstay of Jacksonville Bar Association activities.This initiative is part of the One Campaign offered by the Florida Supreme Court advancing the importance of pro bono representation and advocating for “One Client. One Attorney. One Promise.”
The “Accept One Case” board will be offered by the Fourth Circuit Pro Bono Committee to put attorneys in touch with persons in need. Attorneys will have the opportunity to review case summaries of low-income and vulnerable clients in need of legal representation and talk with other local pro bono attorneys if they are interested in getting involved.
