Gov. DeSantis poised to enact trial lawyer advertising reforms
Now that House Bill 1205 has been approved by the Florida Legislature, it’s only a matter of time before Gov. Ron DeSantis signs it into law, according to lobbyists.
HB 1205 regulates legal services ads related to pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices on television, radio, billboards, and digital ads.
“The problem that we see in Florida are ads done by non-attorneys, which are really legal aggregators,” said William W. Large, president of the Florida Justice Reform Institute, a lobbying organization in Tallahassee.
