Our Team

We believe our nation’s justice system deserves the best technology available to achieve its mission of administering justice with fairness, equality, and integrity. Today’s courts, law enforcement officers, and prosecuting offices are busier than ever. We want to help make their jobs easier, faster, and ever more successful.

Our bottom line: making a positive difference in today’s legal system for both the courts and the citizens. We believe in what we do and we’re excited to share our vision with you.

A Word From the Courts ...

  • "My feelings are --if people are going out of their way to contact us, then they do really want to resolve the issue and by and large, for the most part, we will probably reschedule the hearing ."

    Tanya Todd
    61st District Court Clerk
  • "It seems to be a win-win-win for all the participants. Processes that used to take whole days now take only minutes."

    Robert Ciolek
    Court Administrator, Michigan 14A District Court
  • "...A lot of people who work or go to school or never had issues with the law can go online and resolve their case without ever having to come into court, including paying for it online."

    Hon. Dawn A. Klida
    Michigan 74th District Court
  • "...The way budgets are these days, the police do not have to show up, which means they can do it from their office if they have to do anything. It eliminates the court time which means we don’t have to put that on our docket. And it also frees up time for the magistrate, of course."

    Hon. Thomas Truesdell
    Michigan 14A District Court
  • "Currently those with civil infractions are getting an initial court date on average of 21 days; with Matterhorn, from date of ticket issuance through to closing of the ticket is averaging 6.1 days."

     

    Hon. Brigette Officer-Hill
    Michigan 30th District Court
  • "Matterhorn not only improves the process of resolving a warrant, it alleviates the fears that people might have about coming to court to do so, and getting arrested."

    Hon. Dawn A. Klida
    Michigan 74th District Court
  • "Matterhorn’s online platform has improved what was an inefficient process that was leading to a backlog of cases in the courtroom and a general sense of dissatisfaction with the courts in the community."

    Hon. Dawn A. Klida
    Michigan 74th District Court
  • "Online ticket review helps to make the justice system more accessible and convenient for the public. The system also saves time for judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement, making our justice system more efficient."

    Hon. Robert P. Young
    Chief Justice, Michigan Supreme Court
  • "Going to court is stressful enough, let alone having to miss work. Online ticket review takes the stress out and helps to resolve the case more quickly and efficiently. That’s good news for both the public and the courts."

    Hon. Bridget McCormick
    Supreme Court Justice
