Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County (C) Big Time Photography

The Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court is a public institution rich in tradition and history of the State of Maryland. The Clerk of Court is one of the oldest public offices in our state and dates back as far as 1658 to the first Maryland settlement.The duties of the judges at the state trial court level were so compelling that the Clerk’s Office was established as an independent keeper of the records and to maintain the integrity of the records in a safe and impartial manner; and in doing so, to serve the people. The Clerk of the Circuit Court is an elected Constitutional officer of the State of Maryland.
