The OJCC is so fortunate to have the team we have. Specifically, in this instance, the support team. For over a year, the Administrative Services department at the Division of Administrative Hearings has been working to secure office space for our West Palm Beach District Office. The construction is underway. On April 1, 2013, the West Palm District will be in new surroundings at
One Clearlake Centre, Suite 200
250 S. Australian Avenue
West Palm Beach, Florida 33401
The new surroundings will be different than our old premises. The public areas of the office will include hearing rooms, videoteleconference hearing rooms and mediation rooms. Staff work areas will not be accessible to the public however. This will make West Palm Beach consistent with the format that we have been using with all of our office relocations over the last ten years.
Make a note about the date. If you receive a notice of a proceeding, trial or mediation to occur before the West Palm judges or mediators after April 1, 2013, note that the proceedings will be at this new address.
We will have free parking in the attached garage (so you don't have to go out in the weather when entering or leaving the office). Remember to get your parking ticket validated so that you do not have to pay as you exit.
There is a nice coffee-shop in the ground floor of the building. The view of the lake from there is quite pleasant. A great place to meet prior to or after a mediation or hearing.
Overall, I think you will find the new location most accommodating. I look forward to your feedback on the new District Office.
