The story of us

Our success is measured by the success of those we serve.

Bridging the gap
with technology…

FJTC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, funded by The Florida Bar Foundation in partnership with The Florida Bar, and established to increase access to justice through the innovative use of technology. To do this, we create online tools and mobile applications that address the many civil legal needs of Florida’s most vulnerable populations – needs such as safe and sufficient housing, employment discrimination, immigration, family matters (i.e., divorce, custody and child support), access to quality healthcare, veterans benefits and elder affairs.

Founded in 2014, we are a completely virtual organization, with independent contractors all across the country. As a result, we’re able to select the very best talent, allowing us to bring a wide-range of talent, skill and expertise to our projects and it’s reflected in the work we do. This collaborative approach is at the heart of every project and it is what enables us to provide innovative solutions to the long-standing justice gap.

How we work

Goal-Driven Design

Every resource we create addresses a specific need within the legal aid community, and our design is always driven by that goal.

Community Partners

We partner with legal aid services programs and advocates to ensure we’re meeting the needs of the communities we serve.

Team Collaboration

While our mission is focused, our resources are diverse, allowing us to provide innovative solutions to the long-standing justice gap.

Innovative Technology

We use cutting-edge technology to create better design and user interfaces, so we can deliver plain language content and clearer pathways to solutions.


Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
