What is unauthorized practice of law?

by Tim
(Sebring)

I recently was looking up information on someone to help me fill out some legal forms. However I came across a story about the unauthorized practice of law in Florida and I was wondering what this means.  Does it mean that I need to be careful in who I choose to help me cause not everyone is authorized to help?  Thank you for your time.

Unauthorized Practice of Law

by Betsy
(Miami)

What is the definition of unauthorized practice law in Florida? What are the penalties for the unauthorized practice of law?

I've been helping people straighten out their driver's license records. So far, I've helped family and friends, and once I help one person, another person pops us wanting help. It's like that old arcade game where you hit that little animal on the head. I was thinking I could make a business out of this, there seems to be a huge demand. But, before I do, before I charge, I want to make sure its legal? Do you know?

Rosemary Furman

What happened in the Florida Bar V Rosemary Furman case? What impact on today did the outcome of that case have? I keep hearing / reading little bits about that case, but I don't know the whole story. Just curious.

Am I being Legal????


(Daytona Beach, Florida)

What is the unauthorized practice of law? What exactly is the practice of law anyways? If I try to represent myself in court or represent someone else am I legally allowed to do this or would I be committing a crime?

Can I get in trouble for helping someone?

Hello FALDP,

I came across a story earlier about a lady named Rosemary Thurman sic and how she used to help people with legal documents.  However I see that she was jailed for doing so and I was wondering why this happened or if it would happen to me if I decided to help people prepare legal documents.
