About Us

Kelly A. Lawver, the Clerk of Courts, is an elected officer of the Court and has custody of the seal of the Court. She is elected by the people of Adams County, and commissioned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  
Since Kelly's first term, she has worked at becoming more efficient while providing dignified, respectful and efficient service to all members of the community. Due to her efforts, she was able to eliminate TWO staff positions through attrition in 2012.  In 2013, she had placed another full-time position "on hold", again through attrition, until the job description could be revised and adopted making that position part-time. In 2015, a full-time position was merged within another position instead of filling a vacancy.  Continue Reading...
