To help members understand how this process works, hosts Christine Bilbrey and Karla Eckardt talk with Patricia Savitz about the details of Rule 1-3.8 and how to designate an inventory attorney through the Florida Bar member portal.

Patricia Savitz is staff counsel for the Lawyer Regulation Department at the Florida Bar.
