Every single year, powerful corporate special interests spend millions of dollars lobbying in Tallahassee against you, your clients and the integrity of Florida’s civil justice system.
The FJA works tirelessly against these interests, to protect you and your clients’ rights and to ensure Florida’s civil justice system remains (somewhat) fair.
FJA is the most powerful and effective organization in the state fighting for you, your clients’ rights and Florida’s Civil Justice System. However we need your support to continue to be effective. With your help, together we will bring justice to thousands of Floridians who need the protection FJA can provide.
Who are these special interest groups that FJA battles annually?
- The Insurance Industry
- The Florida Chamber of Commerce
- The Florida Civil Justice “Reform” Institute
- Multiple Health Care Lobbies
- The Nursing Home Industry
- Publix Supermarkets
- Walt Disney World
- Cigarette Manufacturers
- And the list goes on…
“Dollars in Disruption: Survey Points to Gobs of Lobbyists in Tallahassee,”
– Tallahassee Democrat, February 13, 2016
“Florida’s entity-to-lawmaker ratio placed second among the states… with an average 25 entities with a lobbyist for each of Florida’s 160 Legislators.”
All FJA Members are invited and encouraged to come to Tallahassee during the Legislative Session and join our lobbying ranks.
In no other area do our efforts at the Florida Justice Association have more of a direct impact on the success of your practice than during Florida’s annual 60-day legislative session. That’s when your legislative team works tirelessly day and night on behalf of you and your clients. However, we always need volunteers to come to Tallahassee to lobby in their areas of expertise.
Your involvement today will help us secure victories that will benefit your practice and your clients for years to come. Volunteer today!
