Welcome


Welcome to www.browardjustice.net, the official website for the Broward County Trial Lawyers Association. Our organization was founded to serve members of the legal profession who focus on civil litigation, as well as the judiciary of Broward County, Florida. We publish a newsletter, hold monthly dinner meetings featuring guest speakers and case evaluation seminars, where attendees can present cases to a panel for analysis and discussion.

 

Our newest resources includes online member applications and renewals, signup for our monthly dinner meetings, and our deposition and document library, which features fully searchable and downloadable documents and full-text transcripts that are submitted by members.
