Judge Sayfie said it best, that it is the unified goal of all of our justice family: To protect access to justice while balancing health and public welfare. To the extent possible, the courts and justice partners will work to minimize the appearance of persons in the courtroom and limit the transportation of in-custody adults & juveniles to courts. 

As we continue to figure out how to maintain everyone’s safety while upholding and protecting the Constitutional rights of our clients, courtroom and litigation procedures will remain fluid until we determine a “new-normal.” Our teamwork and unity will entire our clients receive the representation they are Constitutionally guaranteed and that they deserve, giving our members the tools they need to serve as “Liberty’s Last Champion.” 

FACDL-Miami is committed to providing a link between members and the Court. We will update this page regularly with emails, information, and links in order to provide you with a centralized reference source. 

Anyone with input, feedback, questions, or concerns should direct them to, or to

Best wishes for health and safety, 

Matthew Meyers
