QUESTION

1. How would you make the office more efficient?

My office, in coordination with the Supreme Court, has begun the first steps required for electronic filing (efiling). Efiling will virtually stop the use of paper. All aspects of filing lawsuits and pleadings will be expedited. The distribution of court orders will be sent by email which will save the county thousands of dollars per year.
