Since 2003, Cannonball's LegalLink program has supported the arts community by serving the legal needs of artists and arts organizations in Florida. LegalLink strives to match artists with attorneys who can volunteer their time on a pro bono basis. In certain cases, where the complexity or time involved makes pro bono placement difficult, attorneys may work for a reduced rate or on a barter basis.
LegalLink assists artists with all types of legal issues, not just those related to their art. These areas include estate planning, family law, immigration, contracts, business law, real estate, taxes, copyright, trademark, and more. For many artists, LegalLink has been a vital resource in their attempts to protect their work and empower their careers.
