President's Column

It has been said that there is strength in numbers. By that standard, members of our organization are part of a strong group. The Florida Bar tells us that there are more than 14,000 members living somewhere outside the Sunshine State. That’s a big number – indeed, according to the ABA’s 2015 National Lawyer Population Survey, that’s more than the number of lawyers practicing in 24 different U.S. states.
