FLORIDA BAR CHARACTER & FITNESS ATTORNEY
The Florida Board of Bar Examiners relates the conduct of an Applicant to the Applicant’s fitness to practice law in the State of Florida. Honesty, fairness, respect for the rights of others, as well as respect for the laws of the State of Florida and of the nation, are the backbone for determining whether a Florida Bar Applicant is fit for the opportunity to represent clients before the Florida Courts. But there is no absolute definition. Accordingly, the specific facts for each applicant’s case will be scrutinized. Let us represent you regarding your character and fitness as a candidate before the Florida Board of Bar Examiners.
TYPICAL CONDUCT THAT FORMS THE
BASIS FOR DENIAL OF ADMISSION TO THE FLORIDA BAR
Positive Social Contributions
Attorneys are expected to positively affect their local communities and the State of Florida. Not surprisingly then, the Florida Board of Bar Examiners look at whether an Applicant has made a positive social contribution to society as a form of rehabilitation. An Attorney with the Firm can counsel you on the type of rehabilitation that will positively influence your admission to the Florida Bar.
Recency of Conduct
An Applicants age at the time of prior conduct, as well as the recency of the conduct, factors into the FBBE’s decision on whether to recommend admission of an Applicant to the Supreme Court of Florida. Prior unlawful, academic, or employment misconduct, may result in further inquiry by the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. Talk to an Attorney to increase your chances for admission.
Openness and Honesty
One way for the Florida Board of Bar Examiners to determine whether you have been rehabilitated is to consider honesty in the investigative process. Admitting to past actions and speaking openly about your mistakes goes a long way towards evidencing rehabilitation. If there are any questionable mistakes made in the past, it is best to have an attorney advise you on how to best proceed.
