On behalf of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas, I welcome you to the Washington County Court of Common Pleas website. As President Judge, I have long held a belief in the value of technology to not only increase the efficiency of the Court but also realize its ability to make the Court system more accessible to the citizens of the Twenty-Seventh Judicial District. We have redesigned the website to include more content as well as enhancing its design and organization to make it more user friendly.

Our biggest design enhancement is the addition of four (4) web portal pages which are geared towards the concentration of content related to our most prolific user populations of the Courts. The Case Participants Portal contains content which is related to assisting parties in court proceedings not only gather information about court cases but also makes available the Local Rules of our Court and procedural guidelines and/or resources. The Juror Portal is dedicated to assisting individuals who are serving the Court of Common Pleas of Washington County as a Juror. The Law Enforcement Portal contains content to aid our law enforcement community in the commission of their duties of protecting the public. Lastly, the Research Portal contains content related to those individuals researching Court related Recording office records which date back to the 1700’s.

We are proud of our website and hope you find it both useful and informational. We welcome any input and suggestions to further improve our site. I thank you for your interest in the Court of Common Pleas of Washington County, Pennsylvania.
