After twenty-eight years of trial practice, Judge Bailey was elected to the circuit bench in 2014, endorsed by both the Sun Sentinel and the Miami Herald, defeating three opponents in his first race. Since his election, he has been the busiest judge in Broward, presiding over cases in Family Court, Civil Court and Criminal Court, securing verdicts from over 100 juries, more than any other judge in the same time period. He has also taken on the responsibility of teaching other judges from around the state at Advanced Judicial Studies from topics ranging from Evidence to Digital Evidence.

Re-Election Campaign for Judge Bailey for Broward County Circuit Court Judge
“Experience matters. The greatest challenges for any judge are not the legal decisions - any competent law student can find those answers on their cell phone - but the LIFE decisions. In Civil Court, someone’s home and business may be at risk; in Family Court, someone’s children may be at risk; and in Criminal Court, someone’s freedom or very life may be at risk. Those decisions call for decades of experience, both inside and outside the courthouse. I’m the only judge in this race and the only candidate who offers you such experience. Please re-elect me for a second term. Thank you.”
Judge Bailey discusses his life as a judge and his love for the position. The judge also touches upon family court and some of the difficulties when a child on the autism spectrum is involved.
