In Florida, certain types of cases are classified as complex litigation. The Florida Supreme Court distinguishes complex cases from everyday civil litigation cases that make up the bulk of cases in the courts and allows certain complicated cases to move through the judicial system more quickly. In order to do so, litigation attorneys must adhere to more stringently applied rules and agree to give the judge more discretion to decide on certain issues that help move the case along expeditiously. If you have a case that can be tried as a complex one, you may benefit from such a proceeding, but your attorney must have experience in this area of law.

  • Many lawyers and law firms
  • Extremely complex issues
  • Rules of law that have not been entirely decided
  • Considerable time needed to complete the trial
  • Coordination with other jurisdictions that can or may be affected
