Contacting Judges

You should not call judge's chambers if you have any attorney representing you. If you are self-represented, you should not contact the judge's chambers until you have first familiarized yourself with the judge's Standard Operating Procedures. Those procedures can be found here. Court personnel cannot give you legal advice. Also, do not expect to get the judge at the below numbers. You will reach a member of the judge's staff.
