Therefore, the FLLIC board has decided to form our own insurance company because none of the existing carriers in Florida offered prepaid legal insurance to groups of less than 500 employees.
If you have ever served on the FLLIC panel, you simply need to update your application and provide proof of adequate E&O coverage (minimum $100,000).
If interested, contact Howard Rosenblatt, president, FLLIC, or Christine Simmons, administrator, at 2830 NW 41st Street, Suite I, Gainesville 32606-6667, by phone, (352) 373-9566 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to an ongoing funding partnership between the Foundation and FLLIC, nearly a dozen first and second year law students have been given the chance to make a real difference in the lives of Florida's poorest residents.
FLLIC has been funding summer fellowships through the Foundation since 2000, when Frances Viamontes and Onier Llopez were chosen for the 11-week public-interest work experience.
FLLIC also funded Tequisha Myles' summer fellowship in 2001 at Florida Rural Legal Services in West Palm Beach.
FLLIC is also sponsoring two other fellows: Tequisha Myles from Florida State University, who is assigned to Florida Rural Legal Services in West Palm Beach, and Onier Llopiz from the University of Miami, who is assigned to the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center in Miami.
David Shear, a FLLIC board member and past president, said FLLIC's strong involvement is linked to the goals of the fellowship program.
