Legal Information Program

Graphic of a man with thick, dark-rimmed glasses, looking up thoughtfully; the graphic's caption reads, "Defending a case without a lawyer can be tough."The Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa Chapters of the Federal Bar Association offer litigants proceeding in federal court without lawyers an opportunity to meet with lawyers to ask general questions about procedures governing cases in federal court. The lawyers may not provide legal advice and may not represent the litigants. Because of COVID-19, the Legal Information Programs are not currently conducting in-person appointments.  However, you can make an appointment to meet with a lawyer virtually or telephonically through the Jacksonville and Orlando programs.

  • To make an appointment, call the Clerk's Office in the Jacksonville Division at (904) 549-1900 or the Orlando Division at (407) 835-4205.  You may also schedule an appointment online with the Orlando Division Legal Information Program by clicking here.
  • For more information about the program, see the brochures below after each division's information
     
  • General questions about the program not addressed in the brochures may be directed to Mike Abel by calling (904) 516-5486.
