Jeremy Alters (J. Albert Diaz)
A Florida Bar referee on Thursday refused to dismiss a disciplinary case against prominent Miami plaintiffs lawyer Jeremy Alters and scheduled the trial Nov. 5.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Marcia Caballero, the Florida Bar’s referee, ruled “a genuine issue of fact” warrants a trial.
Alters’ attorneys argued the Bar committed prosecutorial misconduct, violated confidentiality rules and concealed evidence in its case against him.
This is a continuation of a 2-year-old case against Alters for alleged trust account violations. The Bar accused Alters of using $2 million in trust account funds to cover firm operating expenses at his former Miami law firm, Alters Boldt Brown Rash & Culmo.
Alters is a name partner at Morelli Alters Ratner with offices in Miami and New York.
