The Florida Municipal Attorneys Association (FMAA) was formally organized during late 1981, and adopted its constitution in May of 1982. Its membership consists of over 600 attorneys who specialize in the legal representation of municipalities. These members include full-time and part-time city attorneys and their assistant city attorneys as well as attorneys who engage in private practice and who render specialized legal representation to municipalities (e.g. labor lawyers, bond attorneys, civil rights attorneys, and environmental and land-use attorneys).


The FMAA’s primary objective is to provide a permanent forum for municipal attorneys to identify and address legal problems of common concern among Florida’s municipalities, and to study, summarize, and disseminate legislation, court decisions and administrative rulings affecting municipal operations.


This Association is designed to serve as a conduit of information to local government attorneys in the state and to provide continuing legal education. The Association publishes a quarterly newsletter (Florida Municipal Law Reporter), which includes case law summaries and holds an annual educational seminar typically in July. The location of the seminar rotates throughout the state. There are registration costs for this event.
