Senior Citizen Legal Assistance
In the Judiciary, the Ombudsman is a neutral staff person who answers questions, addresses concerts from the public and is responsible for enhancing customer services in the courts.
The Ombudsman provides a bridge between the courts and the community to enhance public access and improve customer service.
The Office of the Ombudsman provides services in the areas of:
- Public Information
- Community Relations
- Court User Assistance
Although the Ombudsman is unable to provide legal advice -- because court staff must be neutral and impartial -- the Ombudsman can help court users maneuver their way through the system with as much ease as possible.
