TBBBA encourages all members to get involved in Pro Bono! There are many ways to give back, find the one that is a good fit for you.
Pro Se/Pro Bono Clinic
Beginning in the month of November, the TBBBA plans to reopen its Pro Se Assistance Clinic—virtually! The Virtual TBBBA Pro Se Assistance Clinic is a great way to provide pro bono service in an even more convenient and, now, CDC compliant manner. Thank you for all of your continued dedication to the TBBBA Pro Se Assistance Clinic. We hope that you will continue to serve the participants through the TBBBA Pro Se Assistance Clinic.
Normally it is open Monday and Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.. Did you know that the Pro Bono Clinic has a stand alone terminal to access the bankruptcy dockets and documents – FREE OF CHARGE? You don’t have to use your own Pacer ID and Passwords. Yet another incentive to volunteer for the Pro Bono Clinic!
Should anyone have a question, please feel free to contact John Landkammer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank You!
The Clinic is located in the attorney resource room on the 9th floor of the Sam Gibbons Federal Courthouse 801 N Florida Avenue Tampa FL 33602
*if you are in need of pro bono assistance, the clinic is walk in. The sign ups are for volunteering attorneys.
