Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Are the library employees attorneys?
Q: Can the library employees give me legal advice?
A: No. In addition to possibly being construed as the unlicensed practice of law (see Fl. St. 454.23), giving legal advice could potentially put the library in a position of liability. The law can be complex and you should only seek advice from a qualified professional (e.g. an attorney). Advice that the library employees can give is limited to which reference materials might be helpful in your research.
Q: Can the library employees help me fill out a form?
Q: Can the library employees explain a certain law to me?
A: No. Legal dictionaries and other references are available to help you understand unfamiliar language used in the statutes.
Q: Can the library refer me to a lawyer or firm that deals with the topic I’m researching?
A: No, but the local Bar Association can be helpful.
