Marcelo Castro Alves will Serve on Committee 'J' for a Three-Year Term
MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / October 4, 2016 / Marcelo Castro Alves, founder of Focus Investment Advisor, has been invited and appointed to serve on The Florida Bar, Eleventh Judicial Circuit Grievance Committee "J" for a term of three years.
As Marcelo Castro Alves noted, Florida Bar Grievance committees are made up of lawyers and non-lawyer volunteer members. Each of Florida's 20 judicial circuits has at least one such committee. The grievance committee reviews complaints and decides, after a case is submitted to them by bar counsel, if there is probable cause to believe a lawyer violated the professional conduct rules imposed by the Supreme Court of Florida and whether disciplinary action against the lawyer is warranted. There are grievance committee meetings once a month.
"A grievance committee is very much like a grand jury. Its function is to attempt to ascertain, to the extent reasonably possible, all facts relating to the grievances referred to it by the Bar Counsel working with the committee. Volunteering to better the profession is very rewarding," noted Marcelo Castro Alves.
"Serving on a Florida Bar committee can be a meaningful and rewarding experience. It will also provide you with the opportunity to enhance the lawyer's profession and to improve the services they provide the citizens of our state and our fellow members and community."
As Marcelo Castro Alves noted, service on the committee involves a great deal of work with no reward other than the person's own personal satisfaction in promoting and maintaining the high standards of the Bar.
"It is a privilege to service on the committee and with that privilege comes a responsibility. We need the active engagement of our membership to work together to address the many challenges facing all of us in any profession," he said.
