The Central Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (CFACDL) is the Central Florida affiliate of the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, a statewide organization dedicated to serving and promoting the interests and ideals of criminal defense lawyers. CFACDL shares FACDL’s interest in promoting those ideals and strives to help ensure that individuals who find themselves accused of criminal conduct are provided with due process and all the protections guaranteed by the United States and Florida Constitutions.
CFACDL is composed of both private defense counsel and public defenders that practice in the local state and federal courts in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties. CFACDL serves its members by providing them with informative seminars, opportunities to earn Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits, and opportunities to network with other criminal defense lawyers and members of the local judiciary at the various events hosted by the organization. As a service to both its members and the public, CFACDL conducts an Annual Judicial Poll which allows local defense attorneys and prosecutors to rate the performance of judges they practice before in various different categories.
