On Thursday, February 8, 2024, the Supreme Court of Florida granted attorney Jason Dale Volkman’s petition for disciplinary revocation without leave to reapply.

The order is entitled “In the Matter of Jason Dale Volkman,” with case no. SC2023-1679.

According to the petition filed December 4, 2023, Volkman sought permanent revocation of his law license in light of serious pending disciplinary charges and his felony convictions. The 50-year-old attorney had been a member of the Florida Bar since 2000. He was previously suspended in October 2023 under the felony suspension rule for misconduct detailed in the petition.

Volkman faced 45 felony charges relating to the sexual battery of a minor, possession and promotion of child pornography, drug delivery, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He pled nolo contendere and was convicted on all counts, receiving a sentence totaling 30 years in prison followed by five years of sex offender probation.

By agreeing to revocation, Volkman sought to dismiss disciplinary cases pending with The Florida Bar arising from these convictions. In his uncontested petition, he asserted revocation would not adversely affect the public interest or integrity of the legal profession. He also agreed to reimburse the Client Security Fund for any payouts, pay The Bar’s costs of $1,555.90, submit to an accounting audit if requested, and comply with other requirements.

In its order, the Supreme Court granted Volkman’s petition, making the revocation permanent since he did not request readmission eligibility. The order subjects Volkman to the Court’s continuing jurisdiction and states revocation is equivalent to disbarment. It also entered judgment against him for costs. With this decision, Volkman has been permanently removed from the practice of law in Florida.

According to avvo.com, Mr. Jason Dale Volkman is a guardianship attorney in Ocala, Florida. He attended the University of Alabama School of Law and was licensed to practice in Florida in 2000.
