JUDICIAL EXPERIENCE
1993-2000 Judge of the Miami-Dade County Court. Assigned to the Civil and Criminal Divisions. The Chief Judge assigned me to be an Acting Circuit Court Judge in the Juvenile Division (presiding over both Delinquency and Dependency cases). Also presided over trials brought by The Florida Bar Grievance Panels against attorneys accused of ethical misconduct.
2001-2007 Judge of the Circuit Court of the 11th Judicial Circuit. I was assigned to the Criminal Division. I also presided over Bar Grievance trials and Appellate Panels.

ETHICS EXPERIENCE

2003-2007 Elected by Judges statewide to the Judicial Qualifications Commission. My responsibilities included investigating various Judges, interrogating those Judges who were brought up on charges before the Investigative Panel, sitting in judgment of Judge's in which the Investigative Panel found probable cause that they violated the Judicial Canons of Ethics, delivered private reprimands to those Judge's whose conduct did not rise to the level that warranted formal charges but was worrisome to the Commission. I also had a proactive role in speaking, educating and re-educating the new and veteran Judges to make sure that they were spared that dreaded letter from the Judicial Qualifications Commission.

ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE

My duties included briefing the Commissioner on all Agenda Items, getting well versed in the County's Budgetary Process, becoming familiar with the Sunshine law (so that my Commissioner Collins and our Staff would not run afoul of it), lobbying other Commissioner's and their Staff's on Legislation proposed by my Commissioner, meeting with the other Commissioner's and their Staff's on their legislation, constant briefings with County Administrators and staff, working with the County Attorney's Office, making public appearance with and without Commissioner Collins throughout the County and most importantly making sure her office was running efficiently.
