"The Judicial Branch plays a vital role in our system of government. As the Circuit Court of Lake County prepares for the next several years, we should reflect on how far we have come and plan to face the challenges that lie ahead. We set the strategic agenda for excellence for the next nine years within this framework plan." -- Chief Judge Jorge Ortiz
