Personally, we just give the money back before the arraignment unless we have done a lot of pre-filing work. Rarely happens. Perhaps twice in the last five years.I am happy to announce that this morning the Florida Bar Rules Committee unanimously voted against changing the rule to prohibit non refundable fees! This would not have happened without the incredible dedication and hard work of our ad hoc committee. We made personal contacts with every member of the committee armed with talking points.This is a shining example of how FACDL makes a difference.Special thanks to David Rothman, Scott Fingerhut and Jim Miller for assisting in this cause.Derek Byrd, Esquire
