We, the members of the Florida Association of Legal Document Preparers, deeply believe that it is the right of all American consumers to have access to the legal system, regardless of income or education. It is our mission to deliver well researched legal information to consumers.
The FALDP mission embodies our quest and our goals. We offer legal information; and document preparation assistance. We hope that by educating consumers about their legal rights -- we will have done our part to give others hope.
The FALDP mission is a journey. We have only begun, there is much to do. We hope that the confidence gained through education and knowledge will empower consumers, so they may have a fighting chance to enforce or pursue their rights in a court of law.
Members must meet certain educational standards or have experience preparing legal documents in Florida. Members must also agree to abide by the FALDP Pledge. We hope these policies will prevent unfounded accusations that members are untrained, inexperienced, or offering legal advice.
Members will have access to information that affects the delivery of legal documents to consumers -- updated forms, law changes, publications, and research materials. Through our business networking opportunities and information exchange, we strive to further educate members, so that they may in turn educate consumers. We plan to offer members access to a wide variety of legal self-help books and software for easy download or purchase from our site.
Our free monthly newsletter, The FALDP Docket will provide event calendars, legal news, articles, and updates. We hope that members will actively participate by writing their own stories and struggles to include in our newsletter.
Members will have opportunities to learn about legal practice areas, where it is not necessary to be an attorney, such as patent law, social security appeals, and bankruptcy. Through articles on our site, in our newsletter; e-books; or seminars, members will have multiple opportunities to expand their areas of concentration and increase their expertise.
Premium members will receive referrals through our FALDP website; where consumers can search our database by County, Court District, or area of expertise. As our site grows we expect more and more consumers to be able to locate legal document preparers to help them complete their forms. As more consumers find us, your business will grow along with us.
Members will have access and discounts to professional products and services. As self-employed individuals or small businesses many legal document preparers have little or no access to health insurance. In the future we plan to provide members with the opportunity to join a group health insurance plan through FALDP.
As members, we should all have a voice for our opinions and concerns of the state of our industry. We encourage an active and involved participation in this association. Without our members, our association cannot exist and help us further our professional goals. Together we are only stronger.
