    Our philosopy of teamwork and collaboration is anchored in our shared values.

    Accountability - We accept responsibility for the decisions we make and the actions we take in our daily interaction with the public.

    Compassion - We treat each person we serve and each other in a kind and caring manner. From the judge to the court clerks, a "can do" attitude is evident in our office.

    Integrity - We act consistently with our values and the highest ethical standards. Each visitor to the JP office is given the highest priority in their dealings with our court.

    Leadership - We engage, motivate and inspire others to achieve common goals through example, vision and commitment.




    Judge Woodard:
    It was a pleasure to meet you this morning.  I would like to compliment your staff.  They were one of the nicest and most helpful court staffs I have dealt with.
