Grievance Committees
Thirteenth Circuit Grievance Committee “F”

Grievance committees are made up of volunteer members, at least one-third of whom are not lawyers. Each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits has at least one such committee. The grievance committee reviews complaints with much the same purpose as a grand jury. That is, the committee decides, after a case is submitted to them by bar counsel, whether there is probable cause to believe a lawyer violated the professional conduct rules imposed by the Supreme Court of Florida and whether discipline against the lawyer appears to be warranted.

Just Google Erin Cullaro’s name to get the scoop. She worked at Florida Default Law Group, a fraudclosure mill. She then got a job at the Florida Attorney General’s office. She moonlighted as a document executor (notary) at the mill. She was involved in investigating Florida Default Law Group, her previous and current employer during her tenure as an Assistant Attorney General. After this corruption was exposed in Florida media, it took a FULL YEAR for her to be fired from the FL AG’s office. She unsuccessfully threw her hat in the ring to be chosen as a candidate for a Florida judgeship. Then, she took a job at another fraudclosure mill, Shapiro Fishman Gache.

Now, she’s on the committee that reviews complaints about lawyer misconduct, perhaps on her peeps at Florida Default Law Group and Shapiro Fishman Gache? Foreclosure Defense Attorneys better be on guard for more spurious charges from the Florida Bar.

Email Jodi Thompson at the Florida Bar if you have questions or concerns. Might be interesting to inquire if there are pending complaints about Erin Collins Cullaro herself.
