EVENT 1: Mobile Help-Line

What is it:

After a brief orientation on the CLSMF online intake and how to use the Helpline phone system, volunteer attorneys from the Lake County Bar Association will answer phone calls from individuals seeking legal advice who otherwise could not afford to hire an attorney. Calls can range from an elderly citizen facing eviction to a mother losing custody of her child. Some of the calls involved may pertain to legal issues outside of your field but that's ok, with the support of onsite CLSMF staff, much needed legal advice will be provided to callers.

The Mobile Helpline is a project first designed to meet the needs of Floridians requiring legal assistance as a result of Hurricane Irma. While the initial concept of a mobile call center (aka “Helpline on the Road”) was focused on disaster-related legal issues, it is now used as a perfect group event for pro bono volunteering and assistance from local attorneys.

Here is a preview of what the ‘Mobile Helpline’ event is:
