Clerk of Courts

Mission Statement

The Clerk of Courts Office is dedicated to serve the citizens and the Courts of Fayette County by keeping up-to-date and accurate information and by maintaining the security and integrity of all criminal records entrusted to the office. 

We strive to provide prompt, professional, and courteous service to all who contact our office while maintaining public trust in our part of the criminal justice system. 



The Clerk of Courts is an independent public official, established by the Pennsylvania Constitution and elected by the people, with duties and responsibilities that are set forth in the laws of the Commonwealth.

The Clerk is a vital and integral part of the criminal justice system as the official filing office for the criminal division of the Court of Common Pleas. 

Most records, with the exception of records involving juveniles or child victims, and as allowed by state law, are open for public inspection. You may refer to the Public Access Policy provided by the Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania. 

The Clerk of Courts staff are trained professionals; however, they are prohibited from giving any legal advice.
