About Florida Justice Center

Our Mission:
To empower individuals by providing legal support, community education, and removing barriers to success caused by the criminal justice system.

What We Do:
We provide free legal services to low-income people with histories of criminal justice involvement in Florida. Some of these offerings include clemency (rights restoration), sealing and expungement of arrest records, mugshot removal from the internet, DNA database removal, and probation assistance. We currently assist over 5,000 client per year.

Who We Are:
Florida Justice Center is a nonprofit legal aid organization that is at the forefront of an emerging model of holistic legal services. By combining quality legal representation with connections to social and mental health services, we are able to treat the whole person and address the issues that brought about their involvement in the justice system.

Our Employees:
We are among the most diverse organizations in South Florida, with a wide variety of racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual identities. We currently employ an Executive Director, Director of Case Management, Director of Legal Services, Staff Attorney, and Operations Manager who provide hands-on supervision and training to all interns.

Case Management Intern

“As a Case Management Intern, I gained hands-on experience of what it takes to manage clients' concerns and connect them to community resources. Through the reentry program, I've gained a lot of technical experience and systemic knowledge that has guided me in my career development. I really liked how Florida Justice Center is aware of how events on the local, state, and national level would affect the organization's mission and processes. A passion to help the local community and justice-involved adults is a must in this internship. ”
