"I had the opportunity to practice law in Judge Cindy Lederman's court, and have worked with her on many court improvements over the years. She is one of the most insightful and committed Juvenile court judges I have known, and is constantly seeking to assure that the child protection system meets the needs of vulnerable children. She has been the quality assurance for a system that is constantly broken, by insisting the agencies and individuals make positive changes to support the families and children who come before her."
~ Cindy Lerner, Mayor Village of Pinecrest
"Under Judge Lederman's leadership, the Juvenile Court is no longer seen as a quiet forum of wordy evidentiary hearings and legal arguments. It is now a hospital for injured young souls, a place where many different therapies are applied, a place where social workers, lawyers, and parents are encouraged, prodded, and urged to do the best they can; and a place where children are saved."
~ Joni Goodman, former Director for the Guardian Ad Litem Program, March 2012
"Judge Cindy Lederman has been a force for good and for justice. She has passionately protected children and those who would be forgotten. We need Judge Lederman on the bench. She is a community treasure."
~ Katy Sorenson, The Good Government Initiative, March 2012
"Judge Cindy Lederman, a wise and courageous Miami-Dade Jurist."
~Michael Putney, Miami Herald, December 3, 2008
"Judge Lederman has developed a powerful national reputation, working with prominent child development scientists and advocates to bring the work of the courts in line with science and best practice."
