Things are “shipshape” in the new District 18 Probate Court, which consists of the Towns of Cheshire and Southington. Operations are running smoothly as the Court has passed its second State of Connecticut Probate Court Administration inspection since Judge Matthew Jalowiec took office in January of 2011.
Attorney Thomas E. Gaffey, Chief Counsel for the State of Connecticut met with the Hon. Matthew J. Jalowiec and his Chief Clerk Margherita Bergstrand at the District Courthouse in June to inspect the records and review the daily operations of the court. The inspection report contained positive findings in all aspects of daily court operations and procedures under the new administration.
“Being elected to oversee one of the largest Probate Districts in the state is quite an honor, and maintaining a high degree of professionalism and customer service in our court for the community is therefore job one for me. I am extremely pleased with the results of our review which illustrate the outstanding job the Court staff does and the level of commitment we demonstrate towards properly serving the community.” Judge Jalowiec said about the inspection. “I am very proud that the report reflects our dedication to ensuring that everyone’s constitutional rights are safeguarded. Over the past year and half I’ve been out in the community holding seminars and attending speaking engagements spreading the news about the services we offer, how we can help, and dispelling the myths about Probate.”
