CABA’s Pro Bono Project’s (CabaProBonoProject.com) mission is to assist the poor and indigent community in Miami-Dade County Florida by serving as a nexus and providing a referral source between needy clients and pro bono attorneys who can provide direct legal services to them.  To that end CABA’s Pro Bono Project assists in providing well-trained attorney volunteers to help meet the legal needs of our indigent community regardless of race, creed, color, gender, sexual orientation or national origin.  The Project further  strives to support its volunteer attorneys with access to training, CLE education and  mentoring

pro-bono-handsCABA members are encouraged to participate in the Project by accepting a case. The cases are generally in the area of family law and immigration, but there are also needs in the following areas: adoption, bankruptcy, consumer issues, disability, foreclosure, probate and guardianship, insurance, landlord/tenant, and other civil matters. The success of CABA’s Pro Bono Project is reflected in the strength of our referral attorneys, members, friends, law firms, institutions, and organizations who have demonstrated their commitment to our future by volunteering of their time, efforts and monetary donations.

The Project was established in 1984 in response to the needs of indigent Spanish speaking people who did not have access to Spanish speaking lawyers and the courts. In furtherance of that void CABA sought to increase the quantity and quality of the services the legal profession renders to the Cuban-American indigent community. The Project was nationally recognized as a Point of Light by President George Bush in 1992.
