Agency Clerk Information

All Notices of Appeal of Agency Final Orders or requests for administrative hearings should be sent to Agency Clerk Julie Jones at the following address:

DFS Agency Clerk
Julie Jones, CP, FRP
Florida Department of Financial Services
200 E. Gaines Street
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0390

E-Filing Documents for Agency Clerk

NOTE: The Agency Clerk's email address DOES NOT SERVE AS THE AGENCY PORTAL for mandatory e-service of documents and pleadings on attorneys (documents that are not required to be filed with the Agency Clerk). In other words, once an attorney becomes counsel of record for a case, it is not necessary to also e-serve copies of documents related to that case on the Agency Clerk.

 

Requests for administrative hearings may be filed electronically by sending an electronic mail to the DFS Agency Clerk at Julie.Jones@MyFloridaCFO.com. The party who elects to file a document in this manner is responsible for any delay, disruption, or interruption of the electronic signals and accepts the risk that the document may not be properly filed as a result. The date an electronic filing is received by the Agency Clerk will constitute the date of filing of that pleading, up to 11:59 P.M. Eastern Standard Time on the date the document is electronically filed. Any filing received on or after midnight will be deemed to be filed the next business day. Filings on a weekend, a holiday in which the agency is closed, or any other day the agency is closed will be deemed to be filed on the next business day. The DFS Agency Clerk will confirm to the filing attorney the filing date, and the filing attorney is responsible for serving copies of the filed document on all other parties.

Filing Documents for Agency Clerk by Facsimile

Requests for administrative hearings may also be filed by facsimile transmission. The DFS Agency Clerk fax filing number is (850) 488-0697. A party who files a document by facsimile transmission represents that the original, signed document will be retained by that party for the duration of the proceeding and any subsequent appeal or subsequent proceedings in that case, and will be produced upon the request of other parties. A party who files a document by facsimile transmission is responsible for any delay, disruption, or interruption of the electronic signals and accepts the risk that the document may not be properly filed with the DFS Agency Clerk as a result. The filing date for a document filed by facsimile transmission is the date the DFS Agency Clerk receives the complete document.

Regarding Legal Advice

The Agency Clerk is not permitted to provide legal advice, or respond to general questions of the law. Those representing themselves on appeal should review the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure and may find it helpful to consult the Pro Se (Unrepresented) Appellate Handbook published by The Florida Bar at http://www.flabarappellate.org
