Summary of Unlicensed Practice of Law Cases
Thank you to Belinda Martinez for bringing this document to my attention.
A few things to keep in mind about this document:
1. We don’t know who the author is or where the document originated. There is a link to it on the Florida Courts website.
2. We don’t know when this document was created. I found a link to the document in early June 2012 so presumably it is at least that old and therefore some information may be outdated.
3. Belinda contacted the Office of the State Courts Administrator to see if she could get further information about the background of the document and was told “I suggest you contact The Florida Bar, since it seems to be a document that they may have prepared.”
So, keeping this information in mind, use with caution. This is a really great document though and has lots of great information and case analysis and could certainly be at least a starting point for research on the issue of UPL.
If you have any additional information about this specific document, feel free to email me and let me know so I can update this post.
