Attorney feedback is very important to the OCCC as we use this information to help us assess our operations and continually improve our service. The survey is estimated to take less than 5 minutes to complete and will run through the end of the month.
New this year: At the end of the brief anonymous survey, an email address is also provided so attorneys can send specific issues or concerns to our TEAM for follow-up.
Note: Please keep in mind that this is a survey of the OCCC, not the Judiciary, Court Administration or the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).
We thank you in advance for your time and participation.
