Guernsey County Clerk of Courts

Common Pleas, General Division


Way to go Jessica White!!  “I wanted to recognize Jes White in your title office. I stopped in this morning to get a title on my trailer and she was very helpful and professional. There was some issues with the original title and she figured them out and got them resolved. I normally don’t look forward to going to the BMV or title office, however my visit today was a great one!”
