A Message from the 2017-2018 Chair

As Chair of the Solo & Small Firm Section of The Florida Bar for the 2017-18 bar year, I have two goals:

  1. to make this section work for you; and
  2. to work together to make this section the best it can be

Almost two-thirds of Florida Bar members practice in firms of five lawyers or less and almost four-fifths of Florida Bar members practice in firms of ten lawyers or less. If you fall into those categories, you may have more in common with other solo and small-firm practitioners than you realize, and the Solo & Small Firm Section is your natural home within The Florida Bar.
