Hi all, I'm creating a  legal community specifically for Florida attorneys to connect and share with other attorneys.  In other words, no spammy posts geared toward obtaining clients will be allowed.

When we gear our posts towards clients, sometimes it comes off sounding like an infomercial.  This community is intended to be a place you'll want to stop by daily in order to see what's happening in your legal community and hot topics in the law.

Lawyers!
The law doesn't generally lend itself well to simple explanations.

Although I don't practice criminal law, I had seen recent reports of police answering people's cell phones, impersonating that person, and then setting up others.  It seemed dubious to me, but what do I know?  Turns out it was illegal all along.

One last one for tonight.  NY District Court rules that strippers are the main attraction at strip clubs (surprised it's not the buffet) and therefore they have to be paid a minimum wage.

Since going paperless, I am constantly on the look for applications that make life simpler.  Here's a good list some of you may want to check out.  Sign my pad is one I'm going to look into more thoroughly.

I'm a family law attorney in Tampa.  I also do quite a bit of guardian ad litem work in contested cases.   I hope I can contribute something here.

In case anyone missed it, here's the link to the Bar News article regarding e-service.  As a side note, when I recently filed a case, I added my client's email address as required but there was a drop-down box asking for type pf service.  I checked "electronic" and he told me that when I filed the pleading, he received an email regarding the filing.  It appears they're close to having this aspect of e-filing ready to go already.

I had heard the joke, "You know why divorce is so expensive? Because it's worth it."  But I suppose this is verification.
