Today, there are fewer than 20 full-time legal aid and legal services attorneys dedicated to addressing the special legal needs of children in Florida. Thatís only one legal aid attorney for every 31,000 poor children. Even counting the significant amount of pro bono services for children already donated by Florida Bar members, the need for legal advocacy is far greater.
