Changes to Lee county Civil/Criminal Court

County Court, in Lee County, is being separated into two divisions: criminal and civil with six criminal judges and three civil judges. These changes will take effect beginning September 8th, 2021. This stems from the Florida Supreme Court directive (AOSC 20-23 Amendment 12 and local AO 1.13) in which Trial Courts are required to implement civil case management procedures in circuit and county court. This includes Small Claims cases in which the rule has been invoked. The Lee County Clerk will begin the migration of the Lee County Civil (CC) cases and appropriate Small Claims (SC) cases on September 3rd, 2021.

For assistance with the G9 docket please contact Judge Mirra's office at (239) 533-2954 or Judge Gill’s office at (239) 533-2677. All orders are to be submitted via the E-Portal by selecting G9.
