Can I, With a Limited POA, represent plaintiffs in a small claims trial?

by James
(Naples, Florida)

I have a Limited POA to represent the plaintiffs in a small claims complaint in Collier County, Florida. Today, neither plaintiffs or defendants could reach resolution so the Judge is scheduling a trial date; can I continue to represent plaintiffs in this trial or do they need to appear, in person, at trial?

Representing Plaintiff's with a limited POA

If you are not an attorney then the answer would be no as it constitutes Unlicensed Practice of Law (UPL). Unless you are an actual party to the claim you cannot represent them in court.
