Andrew L. Cameron

I am a candidate for Orange County Judge because I believe that county court judges are the gatekeepers to the judicial system and to the promise of fairness and justice within it. The Orange County judicial system resolves hundreds of thousands of disputes annually, the vast majority of these within the county court. That is why county court is the “people’s court” and is for many the court of first and last resort. The citizens of Orange county depend on their county court judges to be fair, intelligent and efficient, and to resolve disputes that they cannot negotiate on their own. Our community is entitled to select their judges, and to expect them to be experienced, patient and courteous. For 26 years, my diverse criminal and civil law practice has rewarded me with extensive experience in the law and its process, and the satisfaction of advocating on behalf of citizens throughout Florida. From this diverse legal experience I will bring to the court a valuable new perspective for the benefit of the people of Orange County.
