We will have several court reporting services positions open in the next few months.  

Please watch the "Employment Opportunities" to the left for current vacancies.





We are excited to announce the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit has been awarded a grant from The Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Access to Justice.  This grant will provide funds to improve our services to self-represented litigants by adding a part-time staff member to assist with e-filing, completing forms and maneuvering the court process.  

The resource person will be available one day each week in the counties of Lee, Ogle and Stephenson.  Please see the link to the left for more information.



The judges and staff of the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit of Illinois are committed to serving the public by providing a fair and efficient system of justice that fosters the public trust and confidence. We work toward accomplishing this mission by continually improving the facilities, programs and services provided to the people of Carroll, JoDaviess, Lee, Ogle, and Stephenson Counties.

The Website of the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit was established to enhance the court’s ability to provide useful information to all who use the services offered by the five court facilities in the circuit. I think you will find the site useful and simple to navigate. We will do our best to provide visitors to the site with current information and will constantly seek ways to improve.

As you explore our web site, please contact us with suggestions about how we can better serve you. Your input is an important source of new ideas about how our court system can better serve the community.

Thank you for your interest in the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit.

Judge Daniel A. Fish
