Small Claims Court Clinic to be held at South Dade Government Center


(MIAMI, July 16, 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, August 21, 2014.  The workshop commences at Noon (12:00 p.m.) and will be held at the South Dade Government Center.  Attendees will receive hands-on assistance in learning how to file a case in Small Claims Court.

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