BRADENTON, Fla., July 5, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Bernard Walsh of the personal injury law firm Shapiro Goldman Babboni & Walsh has attended the annual 2016 Florida Justice Association’s convention and meeting of the board of directors.
Held at The Breakers Palm Beach, the event draws Florida’s most experienced plaintiff’s attorneys from around the state. Featuring multiple events open to all members of the Florida Justice Association (FJA) as well as several meetings of board members and sub committees on a variety of topics related to the Florida Justice System and consumer and civil rights.
Items discussed during the board of directors meeting included several issues in the legislative, political and legal areas important for Florida citizens. Attorney Bernard Walsh and his fellow FJA board members discussed recent legislative changes to the Workers Compensation rules, how new rules on expert witnesses (Daubert vs Frey) will affect the courts, efforts to appeal legislative changes to the cost of obtaining medical records, and efforts to lift the regional based caps on medical mal-practice cases.
In addition to strategizing and planning the actions that the Florida Justice Association will take to support a strong civil justice system and protecting the rights of consumers, attendees of the FJY convention had access to a broad range of networking and continuing legal education credit (CLE) opportunities.
Attorney Bernard Walsh offered this comment about the convention, “While most people are unaware of the Florida Justice Association, many people across Florida are affected directly and indirectly by the work that we do. Every legislative season that goes by in Florida inevitably brings new efforts by the corporate insurance lobby to change the nature of the civil justice system in ways that will allow them to produce higher profits at the expense of Florida’s citizens. Since its inception, the FJA has rallied members of the civil justice system and members of the public to fend off these attacks on consumer protections and rights. Coming to the FJA meetings it is always reassuring to see so many excellent attorneys and legal professionals working to protect the public’s interests.”
