Miami-Dade Judicial Directory

Judges are a very important part of the criminal justice system. When a person gets arrested, their case is assigned to a particular court division. A judge presides over that division, and will likely be the judge who oversees your case.
In Miami-Dade County, judges are split up into various divisions depending on what types of cases they handle. On the criminal side (remember, the other side is civil), the criminal judges serve in the Circuit Court (felonies) and the County Court (misdemeanors). Specifically in Miami-Dade, County Court judges handle DUI, traffic crimes, misdemeanors, and misdemeanor domestic violence.
Each judge has a "JA," or judicial assistant. The JA is the judge's secretary/office manager. They will answer the judge's phone and help to set matters on calendar.
Here is a listing of all Miami-Dade criminal judges, both Circuit and County, along with their JA's information and phone numbers:
