Pahokee and Florida State Court System
Most jury trials in Florida take place at the circuit court. The circuit courts are courts of general jurisdiction, and most criminal and civil cases originate at this level. Those courts hear felonies, family law matters, civil cases (over $15,000), probate / guardianship / mental health, juvenile dependency and delinquency, and appeals from county court. Pahokee belongs to Florida’s 15th Judicial Circuit. The Palm Beach County Courthouse is located at 205 N Dixie Hwy # 1. West Palm Beach, FL 33401-4599, (561) 355-2040. Trial court decisions that are appealed are reviewed by three-judge panels of the district courts of appeal before reaching the state Supreme Court. Florida is divided into five appellate court districts. Palm Beach County, where Pahokee is located, is in the Fourth District Court of Appeal. That court is headquartered at 1525 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., West Palm Beach, FL 33401, (561) 242-2000.
