Civil Law Notary.
Thank you for telling lawyers to remove the unearned Florida Civil Law Notary honor from their Bar profile pages.
When I look up opposing counsel and see they have checked the box, but are not FCLNs, I try to joke them into awareness by saying, "I see you're a FCLN just like me! My license number is 145. What's yours?" I've never had a response, nor does the box get "unchecked."
They are violating ethics rules--this is no different than falsely claiming board certification.
We have 2,594 lawyers who wrongly claim to be a Florida Civil Law Notary on their Bar profile pages, and two things come to mind: They don't know what a Florida Civil Law Notary is (wrongly equating the title with a notary public), or they have delegated their Bar profile page to "staff" who really have no idea.
