Florida Bar Admissions

To be admitted to practice law in Florida, you must apply to the Florida Bar through the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. There are two separate aspects to admission: You must successfully navigate the Board’s character and fitness investigation and, of course, pass the Florida bar examination.
Most applicants have no idea of the extent to which the Florida Board of Bar Examiners will investigate and inquire into their character and fitness to practice the law. It may be cold comfort to know that the Board will only concern itself with two areas of your life: your conduct before law school and your conduct during and after law school. In other words, your whole life.

Florida has no reciprocity with any other states regarding bar admission, meaning that lawyers admitted elsewhere must take the Florida bar exam and undergo the rigorous vetting process. We provide assistance at any stage of the Florida Bar application process.

If at any point in the process you feel your application for Florida Bar admission may be in trouble, you are probably right. Hiring a specialist in Florida Bar admissions to assist you at any stage of the ongoing process may be your best option for a successful outcome.  The Geer Law Firm has been successful at every stage of the Florida Bar admission process, including on appeal to the supreme court.
