Court Administrator - Gina Justice

  Gina Justice

Court administration is my life’s work.  I spent 25 years working in federal courts, in both Southern California and Hawaii.  I held various positions in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.  And in Hawaii, I served 9 years as Chief Deputy Clerk of Court.  As I shift my emphasis to state court administration as Court Administrator for the 13th Judicial Circuit, I will rely heavily on the support and knowledge of the judges on our bench and the staff of Office of Court Administration. 

In the 13th Circuit, we actively pursue innovation while ensuring the swift, equitable pursuit of justice.  Technology will enable us to adapt and grow with the ever changing needs of the customers we serve.

We have relationships with various community partners, which allows us to build integrated systems of collaboration, leading to common goals.  Court programs will evolve and respond to the challenges experienced in our community.
