The Florida Bar is seeking information on senior judges seeking service renewal. Senior judges are very experienced semi-retired judges who no longer want to work full time though some of them work longer hours than many of our regular judges. If your Judge is working too hard on your criminal case in Tampa Bay call your favorite Pinellas Criminal Defense Attorney.
Here is the notice which I received from the Florida Bar Association concerning judges in the Tampa Bay area which includes Pinellas County and Clearwater:
The following senior judges’ current service will expire on September 30, and they are seeking service renewal.
|Raphael, The Judgment of Solomon, 1518|
Seeing some of these names brings back many great memories from trials, court hearings, motions and jury deliberations, while I served as a prosecutor and young defense counsel; if you need a seasoned Clearwater Criminal Defense Lawyer, I’m learning more every day. I’m glad to see that some of my favorite Judges including Overton, Andrews, Beach, Case, Farnell, Fleischer, Fleming, Padgett, Smith, Ulmer and Walker are still going strong and want to continue. Though the foreclosure process seems to have tainted other senior judges in Florida. I hope they’ll be given service renewal to ease the workload of other judges, speed up the criminal court system and mostly to keep them all out of trouble by keeping them on the bench.
