What is the Clerk

The Arizona Superior Court resolves cases involving civil, criminal, family, juvenile, mental health, probate and tax matters. 

In this role, the Clerk’s Office is responsible for many of the Court’s customer facing services. 

The position and office of the Clerk of Superior Court was established in the State Constitution to serve the citizens, legal community and Judicial Branch of government as the Superior Court’s official recordkeeper and fiduciary.

While it would be easy to think that the role of the Clerk’s Office is about managing documents, data, and finances; Jeff Fine and his team believe that ultimately their work is about people's lives, their families, property, liberty, safety, and justice. In a recent strategic planning process, Jeff’s team coined the phrase “Start with People” and memorialized it in their strategic vision as a reminder of the importance of their work.
