Florida NELA is proud to be a recognized chapter affiliate of the National Employment Lawyers Association. As most of our attorney members practice as sole practitioners or in smaller firms, Florida NELA serves, in a sense, as a statewide employment law “firm,” enabling our members to draw from each others experiences, advice and support to even the odds against larger management law firms with their extensive personnel and resources.

With our educational conferences, local area meetings and socials, a comprehensive database of cases, briefs, motions, pleadings and court orders, and a vibrant active discussion group for the instant and constant exchange of ideas and information relevant to our employment law practices, our members find Florida NELA to be an invaluable resource that pays dividends that far exceed the membership dues.
