Message From Clerk Tiffany Moore Russell

Orange County Clerk of Courts Tiffany Moore Russell

Transparency in government is one of the most important responsibilities of an elected official. That is why I am so excited to share with you my office has completed the Orange County Clerk of Courts' 2017 Report to the Citizens. 

The report includes important information on our commitment to elevate the customer experience, leverage technology, increase access to justice, the financial health of this office, trends in case filings, and expansion of services.  

This year our new 2017-2020 Strategic Plan is outlined in the report and our philosophy is to make sure we hold ourselves accountable to it. Each strategic goal reinforces our strong commitment to quality in all aspects of our work. 

While the majority of our work takes place within our offices, including maintaining court files, collecting fees and fines, and assisting the judiciary in the courtroom, we can't be successful without going out to the community to have a meaningful dialogue with people who count on us.

One of my priorities continues to be an ambitious community outreach program to educate our community and expand access to justice for all.  I'm very proud of the efforts highlighted in the Report to the Citizens, including my pledge to expand our outreach to a more diverse audience. 

I am so grateful for a dedicated and caring staff that enthusiastically seeks ways to improve our processes and customer service. Some of our greatest accomplishments started with ideas from front-line deputy clerks.  I am also thankful to the OCBA for its continued support and partnership.   

I hope you'll take some time to read the 2017 Report to the Citizens and see all we are doing to create positive experiences for our customers, partners and the community. 

Until next time, 


Tiffany Moore Russell
