Communities Need Civil Legal Aid

Your support through any of our annual efforts will all count towards Justice Works! to foster a thriving community of empowered citizens.

The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice.”

Meet Our Donors

The lack of a level playing field would leave the underprivileged with few options for seeking justice. Bay Area Legal Services brings fairness to the legal system and encourages an orderly resolution for all. I encourage businesses and financially stable Floridians to contribute to Bay Area Legal."
