CFACDL Judicial Poll Survey
 
As with other local organizations throughout the nation, the Central Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers conducts an annual evaluation of the judicial officers presiding over criminal cases in Central Florida.
 
This poll is designed to accomplish the following objectives:
 
1.  To provide detailed and constructive feedback to the judiciary to improve the quality of judicial administration in the criminal courts of Central Florida;
 
2.  To inform the public as to the performance of its judicial officers and provide insight into the strengths and weaknesses of judicial administration in the criminal courts of Central Florida;
 
3.  To aid in both retaining and selecting to the bench the most qualified judicial officers.
 
For the 2021 poll, the “comments” section has been removed. Since the inception of this poll the comments have been an important feature, allowing lawyers a rare opportunity to anonymously share their opinions with both the judiciary and the public. However, due to the required moderation the end results were often more arbitrary and unrepresentative of the comments received than they should be.

Also new for 2021 is a section on apparent biases. This section gives respondents the ability, if they wish, to affirmatively state that a particular judge demonstrates no bias in a particular area. Please read the instructions section for further information about this new feature.
 
*It is CFACDL’s intent to accomplish these goals in a positive and constructive manner, as the poll is not intended to inappropriately criticize, embarrass or disparage anyone.

*You must follow Bar ethics and professionalism rules. Only complete the survey once if you are a licensed attorney that practices in Seminole, Orange, and/or Osceola Counties for judges that you have personally appeared before.
