Welcome to the Mobile County Probate Court's website. This site has been developed to assist the citizens of Mobile County and other interested parties with matters that come within the Court's areas of responsibility.

I was elected to serve as Mobile County's Judge of Probate in 2000 and I took office in January, 2001. During the election process I learned that many of our citizens were not familiar with the Probate Court or the duties and responsibilities of the Judge of Probate. Hopefully, you will gain new insight and a better appreciation and understanding of the Mobile County Probate Court by reviewing this website. 

The Judge of Probate deals with a number of important life issues and concerns and touches persons residing in Mobile County from "cradle to grave." All residents of Mobile County, no matter their age, gender, race, social or economic status regularly come in contact with the Probate Court. The Probate Court Is The Court Of The People. 

My staff and I are dedicated to serving the citizens of Mobile County. In every area of responsibility assigned to the Judge of Probate, our goal is to be: (1) prompt; (2) courteous; (3) fair-minded; (4) accurate; and (5) available when needed. With regard to judicial matters, the mission of the Probate Court is to provide an impartial and accessible forum for the just, timely and economic resolution of judicial proceedings within the Court's jurisdiction, so as to protect individual rights and liberties and promote public trust and confidence. In all instances, the Probate Court is committed to following applicable law.

This website is designed and offered to facilitate the mission of the Probate Court and these goals being met. If the staff of the Probate Court or I can be of assistance to you, I trust that you will not hesitate to contact us
