Attention Attorneys and Advocates:
The Florida Legislature is in session until April 30th. There are a variety of bills pending in the legislature which threaten to dramatically change the practice of consumer law and would eliminate homeowner and consumer rights.
The bankers, the foreclosure mills and other wrongdoers are lobbying Tallahassee hard and they absolutely will get some kind of legislation passed….if every one of us doesn’t act now to do something about it.
Subject to confirmation of the date, we will have a rally on the Capital. The date is tentatively set for Wednesday April 21, but it may be April 19 or 20 if those days would be more effective given committee schedules and other considerations.
Please mark your calendars now and please put forth this extra effort of service to our profession, our courts and to the citizens of the State of Florida. As attorneys, we took an oath to defend the Constitution, the citizens and our courts. These are all under attack and we are all duty bound and obligated to rise up and defend them.
In Tallahassee, we will meet with our local representatives and with the leadership of both houses. Our message is clear and distinct….
