Referral of Pro Se Parties to Pro Bono Representation

Local Rule Number: 
Rule 9071-2
9000 Series

In any adversary proceeding in which a party is proceeding pro se and the court finds either that, in the case of a pro se debtor defendant there is a reasonable doubt as to the validity of the creditor’s claim, or in the case of any other pro se party, that the party would likely qualify for pro bono representation, the court will refer the party to the pro bono committee of the Bankruptcy Bar Association of the Southern District of Florida for the purpose of obtaining pro bono representation in a trial of the adversary proceeding.
