Florida Workers’ Advocates (FWA) is an organization of attorneys representing injured workers and is dedicated to protecting the rights of those workers. FWA serves as the focal point for action on a range of issues affecting injured workers and their families and is committed to their protection. FWA is exclusively comprised of claimant attorneys who have committed their financial and intellectual resources toward one objective; promoting a workers’ compensation system that fairly provides financial and medical benefits to the workers of Florida.

Yes and no! While FWA works closely with and supports Florida Justice Association (formerly the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers), organized labor, farm-worker groups, and other labor interests, FWA remains the only organization solely devoted to promoting fair and just treatment of injured workers and their families.
FWA is exclusively comprised of claimants’ attorneys who have committed their financial and intellectual resources towards one objective: promoting a workers’ compensation system that fairly provides financial and medical benefits to the workers of Florida.
Join and support FWA today! Don’t let the injured worker, already victimized by an accident at the workplace, be victim to abusive legislation while you reply on a few colleagues to do all the work. Every claimant’s attorney in Florida has a personal and professional stake in the outcome of the annual legislative session. The workers’ compensation system is a statutory creation. Defend the rights of helpless and voiceless injured workers by taking a stand now!
We need your financial support. Only membership dues and donations fund our educational, legal, and political efforts. Our lobbyists’ presence in Tallahassee is of paramount importance and requires money.
Don’t allow the business and insurance industries to continue efforts to dismantle a meager system of benefits, and the injured worker’s ability to choose competent counsel. There is strength in numbers and together we will make a difference!
Contributions to FWA are not deductible as a charitable contribution but may be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. A portion of dues, however, is not deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense to the extent that FWA engages in lobbying activities. The non-deductible portion of your 2009 dues is 44%.
