Florida Bar Trial Lawyers Section
The Florida Bar Trial Lawyers Section was formed in 1967 and boasts over 7,000. The goals of the association are to assist the courts in improving judicial proceedings, to protect the jury system, and to promote the art of speaking through advocacy. Since the association is composed of trial lawyers the organization feels a special obligation in upholding and preserving the judicial system.
LegalMatch is a free online service that helps potential clients connect with qualified Florida attorneys. Traditionally, clients sought attorneys through basic referral resources offered by bar associations. Although these referral resources are still useful for many purposes, LegalMatch provides a streamlined process that is much less time consuming and stressful. LegalMatch currently maintains an extensive database of Florida attorneys representing a diverse range of practice areas.
The Florida Bar Trial Lawyers Section continually meets its goals by publishing and distributing the guidelines for professional conduct and holding ten continuing legal education seminars on a yearly basis. Furthermore, the organization sponsors mock trial competitions and holds a civil trial board certification review class on an annual basis.
