Respected Gainesville trial attorney Julie Aleve Fine has been elected to serve on the board of directors for the Florida Justice Association (“FJA”). Out of thirteen candidates, Ms. Fine was the only female who ran and was elected to serve on the board. Ms. Fine, of Fine, Farkash & Parlapiano, P.A., is an experienced civil litigator who deeply believes in the FJA’s mission of “strengthening and upholding Florida’s civil justice system and protecting the rights of Florida’s citizens and consumers.”
With more than 40 Florida jury trials under her belt, Ms. Fine has an in-depth understanding of the state’s justice system. She is devoted to protecting the rights of individuals and families when they are forced to face off against large corporations with deep pockets and legislative lobbying power.
“In addition to my work arguing for individual clients, I look forward to this opportunity to serve on the board of the Florida Justice Association and work to protect the best interests of Floridians as a whole,” Ms. Fine says.
FJA Fights for Florida Consumers on Every Level
The Florida Justice Association believes “that all Floridians benefit when deserving individuals have a fair chance to seek justice in our state’s courts and that Florida’s consumers are made safer when large corporations and industries are held to a high ethical standard and accept fair responsibility for their actions.”
To this end, the FJA works on three fronts: the legislative, the political, and the public arenas. It aims to make sure Florida residents know and understand their rights to justice, and it fights to safeguard and protect these important rights.
Some of the crucial ways that the FJA achieves these goals include:
Providing legislative, political, and judicial advocacy. While powerful special interests spend millions of dollars lobbying for corporations, the FJA fights tirelessly to ensure consumers’ interests are protected.
Connecting trial lawyers statewide. Through its email discussion groups and sections/committees, the FJA allows its members to connect with a statewide network of top trial lawyers. This allows members to ask for assistance on cases and discuss important litigation strategies with fellow attorneys from across the state.
Informing through the FJA Journal. The FJA Journal is a trusted authority on case law updates and legal trends for plaintiff lawyers. It covers important practice areas such as auto litigation, insurance, medical malpractice, products liability, mass torts, and workers’ compensation.
Continuing Legal Education. The FJA helps its members stay on top of their game by offering sought-after seminars and audio programs on critical legal topics.
Ultimately, the FJA equips plaintiff’s attorneys with the tools they need to ensure Floridians stand on equal footing when they enter a courtroom to take on a well-connected, deep-pocketed corporation.
