With eviction and foreclosure filings expected to start pouring into Florida courts, the way hearings will be conducted is going to be vastly different than before the coronavirus pandemic upended normal life.


Under an emergency order from the state’s Supreme Court that largely suspended in-person proceedings, renters and homeowners will plead their cases not from inside a courtroom but, in most situations, in front of a computer screen.

Local court officials have been testing the system with domestic violence cases and are confident hearings will run smoothly. However, some housing advocates worry that holding hearings over video could make it more difficult to ensure residents get a fair shot at defending themselves.

Thank you for visiting our page! I am a consumer protection attorney who defends Florida homeowners in foreclosure and sues big banks, debt collectors, and other big corporations for ripping people off.

On June 1, 2017, I announced my candidacy for Florida Attorney General. Believing that how much justice you get should not depend on how much money you have, I ran on a platform of fighting for everyday Floridians and standing up to big corporate interests. During our 15 month campaign, I followed through on our pledge to refuse even one penny in big corporate campaign contributions. Though we fell short, we are proud of the grassroots campaign we ran and over 365,000 Floridians joined our cause and voted for our campaign. On election night, I promised to never stop fighting and I asked you to never stop fighting! So in this connection, we are going to keep this page - what used to be our campaign Facebook page - up and running. I am going to be focusing on the causes I’m most passionate about - fighting for our consumers, advocating for addiction recovery, and doing everything I can to make sure we advance a progressive, pro-people agenda here in Florida!
