BAR LAUNCHES EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVE TO HELP FLORIDIANS NAVIGATE LIFE’S LEGAL MOMENTS
The Florida Bar has launched “Life’s Legal Moments,” an educational initiative to help Floridians understand when and how to access legal counsel. A priority of Florida Bar President Gary Lesser, the Life’s Legal Moments initiative was developed after a June 2022 survey found three in four Floridians consider the state’s legal system difficult to navigate. Lesser said the initiative provides “helpful resources” on how to hire lawyers, where Floridians may find lawyers to meets their specific needs, and how to navigate the legal system. The recently launched Life’s Legal Moments website (FloridaLawyersCanHelp.com) provides a host of resources and Lesser said the campaign also includes a robust social media component and the efforts to spread the word and reach the public will be most successful with the help and support of all Florida lawyers.
