Florida Bar Hearing Lawyer
The primary purpose of the character and fitness screening before admission to the Florida State Bar is to protect the public and safeguard the judicial system. In order to be admitted in Florida, an applicant must successfully complete the Florida Bar Examination, demonstrate minimum technical competence and have proof of good moral character.
Sometimes the decisions of your past may cause obstacles to your admission. Our firm has enjoyed success working with any person seeing admission to practice law in the state of Florida (both students and attorneys licensed in other states).
Florida Bar Investigative Hearing Attorney
To a student on the verge of a promising career, or a member of the bar licensed in another state looking to relocate their practice to Florida, FBBE investigations are intimidating. Not every lawyer understands how the investigations and hearings work. The Florida Board of Bar Examiners looks at your past and present credit report, criminal record, mental health, use of alcohol or drugs, and your general candor.
It is important to have assistance filling out your application for the Florida Bar. It is even more important to have assistance handling your amendments to your application. And it is imperative, if you have already been asked to appear before the Board, to have an attorney with you before, during, and after the process.
Let us assist you at whatever stage of the process you are in. Our firm is one of the very few in this unique corner of the law. We are successful because we come prepared.
