Understanding Florida

A significant number of our clients are owed money in Florida, but are not FROM Florida.  As one of Florida’s Largest Debt Collection Attorneys, we are frequently called on to collect debts from people that have moved here from another state,  of to help “out of state” attorneys, to recover debts for their clients where the debtor is in Florida.  We often are involved with domestication of a foreign judgment.

One thing we have found is that to most of our clients, Florida is identified as “the beach” and “great weather”.  We thought that it may help to give a running overview of  Florida as a whole, and the 8 regions or sub economies that make up the sate.
