Circuit Court Clerk

A message from Jimmy Moore, Circuit Court Clerk

“Welcome to the Shelby County Circuit Court Clerk's website. It has been my pleasure to serve the citizens of Shelby County as Circuit Court Clerk since September 1994.
In 1996, we began an initiative to modernize our offices and processes. One part of this initiative was our transition to a computer-based Case Management System. The days of physically coming to the Courthouse and searching through huge docket books and mountains of filing jackets are fading away.

In mid-year, 2012, we took another exciting step forward. We partnered with Chancery Court to institute an Electronic Filing system, the first of its kind in Tennessee, further streamlining our service to you.

I want to know your needs. Please send me an Email with your comments and concerns. I look forward to hearing from you."
