Former police officer, attorney and Florida Circuit Court Judge Alex E. Ferrer hosts "Judge Alex," the highly rated court room strip, now in its seventh season, from Twentieth Television. Judge Alex is the only television judge with extensive police, legal and judicial experience, presiding over a wide array of cases, resolving complicated issues with his straight forward approach and cogent rulings. In 1995, at the age of 34, he was elected judge, making him the youngest Circuit Court Judge in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, where he served as a Family and Criminal division judge for ten years. www.judgealex.com

Questions and topics covered on this show: 1) The Casey Anthony case and what we can learn from its coverage; 2) The wisdom of TV coverage of criminal court cases; 3) How TV court shows work behind the scenes; 4) Public interaction with the legal system.

Judge Alex Ferrer received his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Miami School of Law, where he became a published member of its Law Review and eventually returned to become a Judicial Director of the university's Alumni Board. Upon receiving his degree, Judge Alex practiced law in Miami, focusing on civil litigation, including hundreds of suits involving medical malpractice, wrongful deaths, personal injuries and commercial business disputes. After becoming an attorney, and to further embolden his commitment to law and order, Judge Alex served as a volunteer reserve police officer in the Miami suburb of Homestead. But the experience of law enforcement and legal representation were only stepping stones in his dream of reaching for higher aspirations in the U.S.
