Defending Foreclosures in Florida

A pril Charney, a Jacksonville Area Legal Aid lawyer and nationally recognized foreclosure defense expert, is the featured speaker at a September 12 seminar in Miami—designed for all attorneys interested in learning how to handle defense of foreclosure cases.

Eight hours of CLE credits have been applied for.

Registration for the seminar begins at 8:30 a.m., and the seminar begins at 9 a.m. on Friday, September 12, at the Dade County Courthouse, Courtroom TBA, 73 W. Flagler Street, Miami.
