Logo of the Florida Justice Association
The Florida Justice Association (FJA), formerly the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers (AFTL), works to protect the rights of individuals living in Florida while seeking justice in the state's civil court system.
With more than 3,000 members, FJA attorneys focus on representing plaintiffs in personal injury, medical malpractice, insurance, auto litigation, commercial law, government torts, products liability, and workers’ compensation claims.
The Florida Justice Association serves as a professional organization for personal injury lawyers in Florida and other types of attorneys within the civil justice system. The association also serves as an advocacy group.
The FJA opposes efforts to restrict an average citizen's right to the civil court system, often called "tort reform," and fights such matters in the Florida Legislature.
Members enjoy discounts on continuing legal education (CLE) seminars and audio home-study programs on topics like ethics, jury selection, insurance, auto accidents, and medical malpractice. Membership also provides influence in the Florida legislature and other policy-making bodies on issues that are important to trial lawyers and the profession.
Membership also provides discounts on registration fees to CLE events, like the "Masters of Justice" seminar, "Workhorse" Seminar and Annual Convention.
Another benefit of joining the Florida Justice Association involves access to member-only sections of the website, including:
