Florida Bar Association Sued Over Ban on Client Testimonials
Public Citizen has sued the State Bar of Florida on behalf of attorney Joel Rothman challenging the constitutionality of its ban on client testimonials in attorney advertising.
The case stems from Rothman's use of the online lawyer directory Avvo, which not only lists attorneys but also ranks them on a scale of one to 10 and gives clients an opportunity to review attorneys.

Forms

We have many links to forms on our website. We add links constantly as we find new forms posted or older forms updated. These forms are meant to be used as a template, or an example, since each situation is different and one form does not fit all. If you find a form that you think would be useful to link to on our website, please let me know.
