Message from Cindy Stuart

You may notice our website has a new look. The Hillsborough County Clerk of Court and Comptroller also has a new official seal and logo.

Our team has been working behind the scenes to ensure the Office’s new look is consistent across all facets of our work. Our court and official records employees are embossing and stamping official records with the Clerk’s new seal beginning Monday, April 11th, 2022. We wanted our community to be aware of the changes and provide insight into the meaningful changes.

Our evolved brand reflects our strategic planning work to effectively convey and represent our new mission, vision and core beliefs: Equity. Transparency. Independence. We first explained the imagery behind the brand during our "State of the Clerk" Event in January.

The new seal is a fresh approach for the Office; the blue represents stability, loyalty and confidence and the gold represents compassion, courage and wisdom. The key is a nod to the Court’s function and a reminder of the Office’s duty to secure records. The scales are a reminder of how the judicial process works and our Office’s role in the process. The stars demonstrate the high level of customer service we aspire to provide. 

Blind Lady Justice is a symbol of the legal system and is universally known, but was modified to be reflective of the constructs in our community today. She was inspired by a statue commissioned by Hillsborough County in 2007, which is located outside of the George E. Edgecomb Courthouse and inside the lobby of the newly dedicated Pat Collier Frank Courthouse building, and is representative of our diverse community and the ideals of the Office. We invite you to visit her in person. 

Cultivating a culture that is not only committed to providing excellent customer service to all who need the Clerk’s services, but that also celebrates their many differences, remains a top priority. The Office is community-focused in its efforts to provide representative voices to Hillsborough County’s diverse population in order to be more effective.

Our commitment remains focused on a hospitality mindset and a path to excellent customer service. We want to ensure all people are served, every hour of every day, in an equitable way. We aspire to not only deliver fast, efficient and friendly service, but to also show compassion to customers experiencing hardship, trauma or other adversity.

As a trusted partner within the 13th Judicial Circuit, our mission is to exceed your expectations every single time.

It’s why we serve.
