Judge Alane Laboda received her Bachelor of Arts degree from George Washington University in 1989 and her Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Miami in 1992. Judge Laboda began her career in October of 1992 at the State Attorney's Office in Lee County. In 1997, she joined the law firm of Henderson, Franklin, Starnes, and Holt, P.A., where she practiced as a partner in the areas of criminal and civil litigation.

The Governor appointed Judge Laboda on July 29, 2008 to the Circuit Court. Since her appointment, she has had the opportunity to preside over multiple divisions in several different counties in the Twentieth Judicial Circuit. From 2015 through 2023, she served as Administrative Judge in the General Civil, Guardianship and Probate Division in Lee County.

A native of Fort Myers, she is honored to serve the community in which she was born and raised. Her parents, who relocated to Southwest Florida in 1965, instilled in her and her siblings the importance of giving back to the community. She is proud to be able to pass down this legacy to her two children, with whom she continues to participate in many local events and organizations. Surrounded by her immediate and extended family, Judge Laboda feels blessed to have a career in the town she has always called home.
