Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 20, 2016
Dennis A. Lopez & Associates is proud to announce that its founder, Dennis A. Lopez, was recently appointed to the Code and Rules of Evidence Committee of the Florida Bar. Lopez stated that “the scope and function of the Code and Rules of Evidence Committee differs from other standing ‘rules’ committees of the Florida Bar because the law of evidence is established by the legislature and codified in the Florida Statutes rather than promulgated as rules of procedure by the Florida Supreme Court.”
Therefore, adds Lopez, the committee does not strictly follow the procedure for amending rules, and instead primary focuses on proposed legislation. Rule amendments are proposed only as a technical matter to ensure that the Supreme Court’s Rules of Evidence comport with the code, Chapter 90, Florida Statutes.
As an attorney, Lopez has represented the seriously injured, or the families and loved ones of those killed, due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of others. He is a Tampa Bay area native, attended Jesuit High School in Tampa, and obtained both his bachelor’s and law degrees from the University of Florida, receiving his Juris Doctorate with honors in 1981. During the course of his thirty-five year career, Lopez has represented and concluded thousands of cases on behalf of his clients in a plethora of areas.
