Message from the CEO Kimberly Sanchez
Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida, Inc. (CLSMF) exists to protect our communities by advocating through the judicial system.
CLSMF is a public interest law firm providing legal assistance at no cost to low-income persons across Central Florida. 50 years at CLSMF has seen lawyers, paralegals, legal assistants and advocates working to solve civil legal issues for those facing life-changing situations. We are committed to delivering high-quality legal assistance, with dignity and respect, for those who are seeking protection and access to justice.
CLSMF solves the problems that impact a person’s life.
We assist elderly victims of consumer scams to regain lost funds; we help domestic violence victims and their children break free from abuse; we work to ensure that a family living in poor conditions obtains safe and affordable housing. CLSMF also empowers parents to seek educational resources for their children with special needs. We help veterans who have been denied VA benefits, funds which may mean the difference between having a place to sleep or homelessness.
We walk hand in hand through the doors of justice with our clients, helping to strengthen and empower our communities.
