Fort Bend Lawyers Care (FBLC) was founded in 2006 by the Fort Bend County Bar Association to respond to the growing legal needs of our community's low-income residents. FBLC is a non-profit corporation that provides legal services to low-income citizens by coordinating a process to allow volunteer attorneys to accept legal cases of qualified clients. Prior to establishing Fort Bend Lawyers Care, there was no in-county pro bono organization available to assist low-income residents of Fort Bend County.
It is the mission of Fort Bend Lawyers Care to provide low-income Fort Bend County residents with equal access to justice through volunteer lawyers.
Many times, citizens need answers to legal questions or simple legal advice that can be given over the telephone in just a few moments or, citizens may need a referral to other legal or social service agencies. Fort Bend Lawyers Care has established its monthly Family Law Workshop to fill this important legal need in our community.
On the first Wednesday of each month, from 6:00 p.m. to 8 p.m., volunteer attorneys will answer Family Law legal questions for the low-income citizens of Fort Bend County at the Family Law Workshop. Please call 281-239-0015 to pre-qualify.
