"My go-to for current relevant information about dependency law is the Florida Dependency Law Center newsletter and website. I use both to stay up on the law and best practices. I find useful articles, forms, and research for my cases on the website. It is a must for attorneys who practice in dependency court."
  - Pamela Bress,
Senior Attorney, Brevard County Legal Aid, Inc.
"The Florida Dependency Law Center (FDLC) continues to find new ways to provide support and helpful information. They seem to know what I need even before I know to ask for it. We are all busy, but I always take time to read their emails, follow the links to helpful articles, and sign up for their webinars. Thanks FDLC!"

"The TLC resource does more than improve the court system's handling of cases. It enhances a judge's ability to handle cases more efficiently and expeditiously, and it enhances an attorney's ability to advocate for appropriate services for their client. It is truly an invaluable tool."
