Message from the Chair
All of us, whether we practice at big firms, small firms or as solos, whether we represent large or small businesses, individuals or the government, have the same objectives: zealous protection of our client’s interests, providing quality work for reasonable fees, and promoting integrity, diversity and honesty within the profession. The Florida Bar has an outstanding record of promoting the achievement of these objectives. Those among our membership who are solo practitioners or small firm lawyers have played, and will continue to play, an important role within our profession and The Florida Bar. As Chair of the Solo & Small Firm Section of The Florida Bar, I am honored to be among the membership of Florida’s solo and small firm practitioners. The legal profession would not be where we are today without them.
