Judicial Evaluation Program

The Judicial Evaluation Program, established in 1997 by the Florida Bar and the state judiciary, is intended to provide judges with substantive input from the attorneys who appear before them concerning their perceived strengths and needed areas for development. All information collected by the Program is confidential and is shared with the judge for review and to encourage performance improvement. In accordance with the Florida Bar and the Florida Supreme Court, the 13th Judicial Circuit encourages all lawyers who have just completed a proceeding before a judge in this circuit AND who meet the following criteria to complete a confidential judicial evaluation form:

You have personally appeared before the judge in a matter, and

  • You had an adversary proceeding before the judge prior to the rendition of a verdict, judgment or order, and
  • The verdict, judgment or order is a final order ending the case at the trial level.
