If you would like assistance with one of the categories of cases we handle, please fill out the form below. Although we cannot assist every person who contacts us, we will make an effort to review what you submit and respond. Because we receive a high volume of requests and have a small staff, it may take some time to respond, so please be patient.
The categories of cases we handle include:
Prisoners Rights – Cases for persons currently or formerly incarcerated in a Florida prison or jail, involving mistreatment while incarcerated, or involving the conditions of the facility. We do not handle criminal or post-conviction cases (meaning anything related to a criminal case, including criminal appeals, sentencing motions, Rule 3.850 or 3.800 motions, clemency petitions, and habeas corpus petitions).
Housing Discrimination – Cases in which a person has been denied housing because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or familial status (having children or being pregnant). We do not handle foreclosure cases, landlord-tenant disputes, or condominium disputes unless they involve the issues noted above.
Disability Discrimination – Cases in which a person is unable to access or use a place of public accommodation (such as a hotel, government office, restaurant, etc.) because of a disability. We do not handle employment cases.
Important Civil Rights or Civil Liberties Issues – Cases that involve important issues that are likely to affect a large number of people, or may result in systemic change.
