2011 Judicial Evaluation

Every other year the Sarasota County Bar Association conducts a survey of all attorneys in the Twelfth Judicial Circuit regarding the Judges in the Twelfth Judicial Circuit, in several areas that have been deemed to be important criteria for judicial temperament and performance. 

The results are from approximately 320 responses out of approximately 1600 attorneys.  The Sarasota County Bar Association Board has evaluated these results as compared to prior years and has determined that with few exceptions, the Judges have improved their scores, and without exception have all been rated well above average.  The Sarasota County Bar Association is not surprised by these results as it is the general impression and belief of the Sarasota County Bar Association that the Twelfth Judicial Circuit Judges are some of the finest judges in the State of Florida. 

The Sarasota County Bar Association is very appreciative of those who have assisted with this survey and is proud of its excellent relationship with its judiciary that permits the kind of interaction and support for this program.
