Probate Judge

The Probate Office staff is dedicated to serving the citizens of Autauga County. Each of us in Probate Office takes our responsibilities seriously and we strive to always be helpful and courteous. With regard to judicial matters, the mission of the Probate Office is to provide an impartial and accessible forum for the just, timely and economic resolution of judicial proceedings within the Probate Office jurisdiction, so as to protect individual rights and liberties and promote public trust and confidence. In all instances, the Probate Office is committed to following applicable law.

I was elected to serve as Autauga County’s Judge of Probate in 2018 and I took office in January, 2019. During the election process I learned that many of our citizens were not familiar with the Probate Office or the duties and responsibilities of the Judge of Probate. Hopefully, you will gain new insight and a better appreciation and understanding of the Autauga County Probate Office by reviewing this website. We are working to hard to update information, as well as provide you with user friendly videos and other information.
