Judge Erin T. Perry

There Is No Substitute For Experience.

In fact, it’s been said that the only source for knowledge is experience. I have spent my entire career building the experience that placed me in the courtroom as a judge. My prior litigation experience and having presided as judge over thousands of cases – both civil and criminal – benefits those who appear before me.

I am mindful that most people who have an interaction with the legal system encounter it in County Court. Many of those who appear before me have never before been in court and will never be again. As such, I must ensure the rights of everyone who appears before me are maintained, and they have a clear understanding of what is happening through each phase of the judicial proceedings.

It is my duty as a judge to make sure that everyone who appears in my court is treated with respect and judged fairly, based on Florida law, and my decisions made without bias while using a good dose of common sense.

I understand the responsibility that rests on my shoulders as a Judge. My integrity is widely known. I have gained the trust of the attorneys who appear in my court because they know I am honest, straightforward, consistent in my reasoning, and thoughtful in my decisions.

My goal has been, and always will be, to deliver justice.
