Florida Defense Alliance


Governor DeSantis is committed to ensuring our service-members have the support of the state’s legal community and its best legal minds. To achieve this goal, the Governor’s Initiative on Lawyers Assisting Warriors (GI LAW) will draw from the talent of Florida’s leading law firms to provide pro bono services for military members. Through this initiative, our state’s men and women in uniform will receive local counsel in a variety of civil matters, including actions in local courts. Participating attorneys will dedicate time and expertise to ensure a prompt and fair resolution of legal matters.

This program is a collaboration between the Governor, the Department of Military Affairs, the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs and Enterprise Florida, Inc.

Request Assistance:

GI LAW Legal Assistance Request Forms must be submitted through the appropriate Judge Advocate General or civilian military attorney’s office. Request forms are not accepted directly from service members.

    * Due to a backlog of family law legal service requests, GI LAW is temporarily suspending accepting family law legal services requests.  GI LAW may resume accepting requests for family law legal services after the backlog has been cleared.
