T. Erskine Ice
A big law refugee with over thirty years of attorney experience, he founded a firm devoted to defending consumers that soon drew national attention for its role in exposing the robo-signing controversy during the foreclosure crisis.
A prolific writer on legal issues, he has authored hundreds of appellate briefs on behalf of consumers and has published controversial articles criticizing current judicial interpretations of the law that unduly favor the affluent.
As a judicial watchdog, he has repeatedly butted heads with the court system itself when it transgressed consumer rights and led one such dispute to a successful conclusion in the Florida Supreme Court.
He has been recognized as one of “Florida’s Legal Elite” and a “Florida Newsmaker of the Year” by Florida Trend Magazine, a Key Partner by South Florida Business Journal, and a “Most Effective Lawyer” by the Daily Business Review. He was also selected to a Florida Super Lawyers list and is also a long-time holder of a Preeminent™ peer review rating from Martindale Hubbell for Ethical Standards & Legal Ability™
A lawtender-in-training, she spent a career in management of non-profits raising money for worthy causes and, in the process, developed a knack for finding improper practices that drained away donations. She brought that skill to Ice Legal, P.A. where she found evidence that bank attorneys had engaged in a widespread pattern of misrepresentations to the court. The revelation of these falsehoods ultimately toppled an infamous foreclosure mill and propelled a foreclosure case into the limelight as one of the few to reach the Florida Supreme Court.
An outspoken critic of the systemic bias against pro se litigants, she is a key member of the team that created LegalYou as the answer to the staggering access to justice problem that has plagued middle and lower income families. Her role focuses on the visual design of legal learning tools as a means of empowering pro se litigants to take back their courts.
