Soreide Law Goup reminds every applicant if they are contacted by the Florida Board of Bar Examiners requesting an investigative or formal bar hearing, they need to be ready for their hearing. If the Board of Bar Examiners files specifications and you are facing a formal hearing you could be looking at an 8 month to a one year delay to your plans. Soreide Law Group has represented hundreds of applicants in both the investigative and formal hearings before the Florida Board of Bar Examiners.
Every bar hearing requires evidence and testimony which is tailored to your specific fact set. Many of these items can be obtained quickly so it will vary case by case if an earlier hearing before the Florida Board of Bar Examiners is right for you. The Board will waive the 15 day rule for submitting your evidence in advance if you are within the 15 day window. In this case, you would be able to bring your exhibits with you to the hearing itself. You must bring 5 copies of anything you intend to submit, one copy for each of the Board members, one for the record, and one for you.
If you feel you may not be ready for your Florida Board of Bar Examiners Hearing or if you feel it is short notice, then we would recommend you wait until you are fully prepared and have done all of the work in advance. You should not rush into an earlier hearing. If you are not sure, we recommend you contact an attorney for a consultation.
