Mission Statement of Wayne Culver, Candidate For Judge, Group 6

  I am running for Judge because I believe my experience as both a former Assistant State Attorney and Assistant Public Defender will benefit the legal community and the citizens of Seminole County. I understand the perspective of each litigant who appears before the Court and believe that every person deserves to be treated in a courteous and respectful manner. I have compassion and have learned the importance of listening and empathizing with all parties. I realize that people are in court because they are going through a difficult time and they are relying on their judge to restore order and resolve the problem by impartially applying the law to the facts and making a decision on the case.

"Although our family members were witnesses for the prosecution in a trial with Wayne Culver’s client as the defendant, Mr. Culver treated every witness with consideration and respect. Rather than simply seeking a ‘win’ for his client, Mr. Culver’s primary concern was a fair and just outcome to the trial."

Sherry & Dan Williams
Trial Witnesses

"Growing up in a low income community you don’t have much respect for law enforcement, attorneys or judges. Trust for them is even more scarce. However, when I found myself in Wayne Culver’s office he earned both my respect and trust. Wayne did not make false promises or insensitive threats. He clearly explained the law and legal process in a fair and accurate manner. In fact my son is in a better place because Wayne Culver as a Public Defender was professional, courteous and kind. I know Wayne will serve the citizens of Seminole county with the same attributes."
