Small Claims Court Clinic to be held in Miami Shores, Florida


(MIAMI, February 7, 2014) – Miami-Dade County’s Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources (RER), Office of Consumer Protection will host a FREE Small Claims Court Clinic on Thursday, February 27, 2014 commencing at Noon (12:00 p.m.) at the Miami Shores Community Center.  Attendees will receive hands-on assistance in learning how to file a case in Small Claims Court.

The Small Claims Court process will be led by RER’s Office of Consumer Protection Division Chief, Gregory Baker.  Mr. Baker will provide an overview of the County’s small claims court system and review steps for how to file small claims court documents.  At the end of the workshop, participants will be allotted time for a “Q & A.”
