The NDFLBBA Pro Bono Initiative webpage on the Court's website has been updated to include two new programs: P.L.A.N. (Pause for Legal Assistance Now) and RAP (Reaffirmation Assistance Program). These programs are designed to assist persons who require more detailed legal advice about bankruptcy but are not sure they can afford an attorney. Eligible individuals may receive legal representation free or at a reduced rate. Attorneys may consult the webpage to learn how these programs may be used to satisfy Florida Bar pro bono service guidelines. The pro bono initiative and P.L.A.N. hotline phone number is 866-944-6421.
