  • Chamber Chat: GALLA - Gay & Lesbian Lawyers Association of South Florida

    One of the goals of the Miami-Dade Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (MDGLCC) is to provide resources for our members and the community. If you are ever in the need of an attorney or legal assistance we strongly encourage that you search within our affinity group GALLA (Gay & Lesbian Lawyers Association of South Florida) to find the resource that better suits your needs.

    GALLA is a voluntary professional association for lawyers, law students, paralegals and other members of the legal profession providing a visible community presence within the South Florida legal community.
