Championing justice for consumer rights recently earned attorney Douglas Burnetti recognition from the Florida Justice Association (FJA).
The Florida Justice Association, a non-profit professional association, is dedicated to strengthening and upholding Florida’s civil justice system and protecting the rights of Florida’s consumers.
The FJA works in the legislative, political and legal fields to ensure that Florida residents know and understand the importance of their rights to justice, and to make certain that these rights are safeguarded and protected. In addition, the organization also works to stop efforts by the insurance companies to attack consumer protections and rights, and to produce higher profits at the expense of Florida’s citizens. This includes legislating on a wide array of issues, including PIP auto insurance laws, Workers’ Compensation rules, caps on medical malpractice cases, debt collection practices, bad faith claims, and nursing home standards.
The Florida Justice Association acknowledged the FJA EAGLE Hall of Fame Member with the Eagle Legend $100,000 Lifetime Contribution recognition. Through member contributions, the FJA is able to continue efforts to safeguard consumers by improving, amending or stopping bills filed in both houses– bills that without the organization’s help may otherwise make it easy for insurance companies to avoid liability.
Mr. Burnetti joined the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, now known as the Florida Justice Association, because the organization shared his belief on providing a voice to the voiceless. The group of trial lawyers work to provide Florida citizens with a fair chance to seek justice in Florida’s court system, and to hold large corporations and industries to a high ethical standard and to accept fair responsibility for their actions.
