Our mission is a journey. We have only begun, there is much to do. We trust that as we grow and educate our members; our members will, in turn, educate consumers. We hope that the confidence gained through education will in turn empower those consumers. We have faith that one day, consumers will have a fighting chance to pursue their legal rights, with or without an attorney, with the proper education and tools to know when or if legal advice is required, and to make their own informed legal decisions whenever reasonable.
Conference fees are only $105. for both days for Premium Members. Accommodations are paid separately. Some local hotels and Bed & Breakfasts are offering discounted rates to attendees. Please check our website for conference and accommodation discount details.

Conference Details & Registration:
Saturday, September 22; 9-5 – Day one - The FALDP Forum, focuses on education, with three dynamic guest speakers and lively guided discussion throughout the day:
James Middleton of Estate Planning Group, LLC will speak to the members about the importance of Living Trusts and Estate Planning – for everyone – not just for the wealthy. Since 1984 James has focused his energy on helping people plan ahead, so that they can achieve peace of mind, here and now. He returns on Day Two to discuss with members how to become involved in helping others through the FALDP Living Trust Estate Planning System. James relies on HotDocs Sofrware and information published by Schumacher Publishing, Inc. For more information about Living Trusts, visit -
David Bass, another of our guest speakers, is a Florida real estate expert, broker, and investor who relies on legal document preparers to complete the form sets he has compiled. As a private lender in this dismal economy, David found that paying attorney fees to foreclose his private mortgages was nowhere near cost effective. So, David developed a system for private lenders to foreclose their own loans which he has used successfully over and over again.

Joey Morales will speak to our group about credit repair. He works for Credit Justice Services - http://creditjusticeservices.com/
On Sunday, September 23; 10-2 – Day Two – The Business Development Seminar, our three guest speakers return to invite FALDP members to partner with them by adding new income streams to their business menu. Along with these three business add on opportunities attendees will also be invited to learn about increasing their income by networking with other members for services. Member presenters will discuss how members can increase their business efficiency and income by adding on or using services such as: becoming a process server; using our member's computer merge service for faster document preparation and assembly; and tapping into another member's marketing expertise to get the word out through cyber space about your services.
Both days will be interspersed with guided discussion, brain storming sessions, and prize giveaways.
The Friday evening before, (9/21) a pre-conference get together is set for happy hour, 5-7, at the one and only “SPY Global Cuisine and Lounge” located at 21 Hypolita Street, St. Augustine, Florida 32084. FALDP Director, Ruth Tick, will be there waiting to meet you. (She said she'd be sure to wear a flower in her hair – so you can find her).
Florida legal document preparers, don't be left out. If you have not yet joined the only Florida trade association created just for you, there is no better time. Come and enjoy our Third Annual Conference, and explore historic St. Augustine.
SEE YOU THERE!
