Really love the opportunity they have given me. I have been able to work in different divisions of the courthouse and really enjoy it. Everyone is very friendly and always thankful to have the extra help. I would recommend it!

Everyone at Court Services is friendly and welcoming. I started out as an intern for credit, then I stayed as long as I could because I enjoyed it so much. The people are amazing and the work is enjoyable and important. If you have an interest in the legal system or just want to help people, this is a great place for volunteering.
