Small Claims

The jurisdictional limits of Small Claims Court often make the retention of an attorney cost prohibitive, meaning that the cost of hiring an attorney may be more than the amount of money at issue. It is important to know however that Small Claims is governed by the Rules of Small Claims rather than the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure, and the subtle differences could make the difference between prevailing on the merits of your case and prevailing on the merits of your case with the other side being responsible for your fees and costs.
