Rebecca Roussel

 “This letter is to inform you of the outstanding service of your employees in the Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court’s Office.  It is so common to complain about government workers on every level.  I just wanted to take the time to say something nice about an exceptional employee, Shelby Griffin.  Shelby was extremely helpful as we worked through this maze of complications.  What a pleasant experience to deal with someone who understood what was needed and displayed such patience.”

Charlotte Hackman

September 24, 2013

 “I want you to know that you have three exceptional employees in the Domestic Hearing Officer Section, Karen Vinet, Franchelle Simpson, and Joycie Cardinale.  I have practiced in the 24th Judicial District Court for over twenty years and whenever I have had any dealings with these three employees, they have provided me with competent, efficient and courteous service.  I have called them with problems that have arisen and they are always pleasant to speak with and are always a great help.  They are a credit to your office.”

Betsy A. Fischer, Attorney at Law

May 20, 2013

 “Recently Linda Brockhoeft, one of your clerks, rendered extraordinary service to me which prompts me to write this letter to you.  It is times like these when attorneys truly appreciate the effort made by the clerks to make sure that the court system runs as efficiently as possible.  It is just further evidence of a great clerk’s office.”

Leigh Traverse, Attorney at Law

December 12, 2012

 “Thank you for an excellent job!  I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the outstanding care I received from your department and particularly your employee Gabby Bergman.  She diligently searched and found the case documents that proved my findings and helped my client prevail at a very crucial court hearing.  I have been a licensed investigator for 25 years and have dealt with many clerk employees all over the country.  I can safely say that Gabby is one of the best employees you have because she is one of the best that I have ever had the pleasure to work with.  Her efforts were outstanding and most appreciated.  Her kind manner and professionalism really impressed me.”

Mark J. Imfeld

December 10, 2012

 “I have had the privilege of appearing before Judge Robert Murphy in Division “D” on numerous occasions.  His civil minute clerk, Ms. Madeline “Maggie” Robichaux and his criminal minute clerk, Ms. Michelle Pere, have been outstanding representatives of your office.  They have always been eager to assist me in respect to any problems that existed in any case.  Their diligence and competence reflect very favorably on you.”

Paul H. Villalobos, Attorney at Law

June 2012

 “I just wanted to take a moment to share with you the exemplary actions of one of your great employees.  Gina Victoriano went, would I consider, above and beyond the call of duty in assisting me with a situation.  The system needs more employees like Ms. Victoriano.  I find it rare to find someone that is capable and willing to go the distance when confronted with any type of problem or situation.  However, Ms. Victoriano was capable and willing.”

R. Clark

May 21, 2012

 “As in the past, when Jim Marvin was unavailable to be in court during my criminal docket weeks, your staff has arranged for a “fill-in.”  I have been incredibly fortunate in having as a fill-in on two or three occasions Pat Barras.  Her expertise and quality in the handling of a criminal docket along with the many entries she must make both digital and otherwise will always be welcomed in my division.”

The Hon. Ross P. LaDart, Judge, 24th Judicial District Court, Division “O”

 “I have been filing pleadings in person and by mail with your office for over 30 years.  And, as I have worked for the regional child support office for more than 20 years, the contacts personally and through my staff attorneys are many and frequent.  In addition, I have called often with questions regarding filings, hearing dates, service of process, etc.  In all of that time your office and staff have never been anything but polite, professional and helpful.  Never a rude word, never a sigh of impatience.  Always helpful.  Please pass along my thanks for jobs well done to your entire staff.”

Molly K. Vigour, Attorney at Law

The Times-Picayune, Letters to the Editor, August 30, 2011

 “I want to thank Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court Jon Gegenheimer for making my one-day jury duty enjoyable. The jury lounge, with its comfortable chairs, television and computer tables, made the day painless for me. The clerks were knowledgeable, kind and accommodating.  I was selected to sit on a jury (first time for me) and found it to be interesting and rewarding. Taking a day off from the normal routine was not bad at all.”

Lisette V. Turpin, Metairie

August 3, 2011

May 26, 2011

 “Jon is an amazing public official! As Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court, his office is one of the best run in the state, his employees are friendly, efficient, and competent, and he is extremely accessible. As an elected official myself, as well as an attorney, I feel very fortunate to have Mr. Gegenheimer as Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court.”

Louisiana State Senator Julie Quinn

 “My name is Dawn Irving and I am taking the time again to write about one of your employees with the Clerk of Court, Robin Deeters.

Dawn Irving

April 11, 2011  

 “Matt Toups has been working with the Jefferson Parish Intensive Probation Drug Court office for approximately 1 year. In the last year, Matt has worked well with all members of the Drug Court team. Because of Matt’s devotion to his job and genuine interest in the success of the Drug Court program, there is a cohesive relationship between Drug Court and the Clerk of Court’s office. We sincerely appreciate all of his effort and support over the last year.”

Belinda C. Constant, Administrator 24th Judicial District Court Intensive Probation Drug Court

March 28, 2011 

 “Earlier this month I needed to obtain certified copies of a 1964 document from your office. From the first telephone call I made until I received the certified copies a few days later, I can only describe the service as ‘amazing’. Each person I spoke to was courteous, knowledgeable, professional, and went out of their way to help. Several things stood out in these telephone conversations. First, each person answered his of her phone when it rang. That made an instant positive impression, as it is so rare in this age of voicemail and automated telephone response systems.”

William H. Stanton

December 18, 2010

 “As an active user of the Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court Office for more than 30 years, including the last 22 years when it has been under the leadership of Clerk of Court Jon Gegenheimer, I feel compelled to respond to recent media coverage regarding his office. Jon Gegenheimer has established the Jefferson Parish Clerk of Court office as the premier leader of custodianship of public records in the state of Louisiana. His innovations in court administration, election administration and land records management, all done in the interest of the public he serves, have helped saved thousands of dollars in costs to those who make use of his office’s services. Through effective use of filing fees, Jon Gegenheimer implemented his seven-point plan for reform. Adapting to the information age, he implemented the most advanced electronic imaging and retrieval system in the state. Without his strict fiscal reform and wise use of pubic filing fees, none of these services would have been possible. With the current crisis in Orleans Parish Civil District Court, Jon Gegenheimer was the first clerk of court to lend his resources, as well as the expertise of his office, to help recover valuable public records. Jon Gegenheimer is a public servant dedicated to serving those who elected him, and he demonstrates this by wise use of his office finances.”

James B. Barkate, President, Southern Abstracts Inc., Gretna

December 5, 2006

 “I have been the Chief Disciplinary Counsel in the State of Louisiana for over ten years now and in that capacity I have had the opportunity to interact personally or through staff with virtually every Clerk of Court’s office across the State. As one might expect, some are run more professionally and diligently than others. Your clerk’s office ranks among the highest in the State. In particular, I would like to take a moment to mention Ms. Kim Garland, Docket Clerk for Sections D, E, F and K. Routinely, my office requires assistance in locating records of both a civil and criminal nature, and in following-up on motions filed with your office. Consistently they report back to me that but for the efforts of your staff, including Ms. Garland, their jobs could not be accomplished as efficiently as our duties require. The purpose of this letter is simply to say thank you and to apprise you, although I am sure you are already aware, of what a valuable employee you have in Ms. Garland.”

Charles B. Plattsmier

July 8, 2002

 “My family and I would like to thank you once again for your care and understanding on Monday, April 29. Everyone helped us and I will never forget their help and kindness to us. Our deepest thanks to Jon A. Gegenheimer, Judge Robert Murphy, Sherry, and Susan.”

Mr. & Mrs. Joseph A. Roberts, Brett C. Roberts

 “Thanks to you and of course a special thanks to all of your employees who [make] my job so much easier.”

April 30, 2002   

 “In almost 40 years of practicing law in the parish, I have never dealt with such pleasant, knowledgeable and willing clerk-of-court team. Your leadership as the Clerk of Court sets Jefferson apart and way ahead of most parishes in the state and I want you to know I appreciate the professionalism of your office and positive attitude of your personnel.”

John G. Villarrubia

April 18, 2002

 “I want to commend you on having as staff of very competent, efficient and courteous employees. I am an attorney, but am not actively practicing. It has been years since I have gone to the Courthouse in Gretna until today. I had to file a petition to change a name. In spite of all the fears I had, things worked out extremely well. Your staff left me with a smile on my face.”

Senator George T. Oubre

March 28, 2002

 “Just recently I was appointed to the position of Manager of Riverside Court Condominiums. One of my duties is the filing of liens against condos on which the owner has failed to keep the fees and assessments current. I spoke with Brian Freese of your East Bank office concerning procedures, etc. Mr. Freese was extremely helpful and very professional. Upon arrival at the East Bank office I found the staff to be as helpful and professional as Mr. Freese.”

William Brucker

March 22, 2002  

 “In this hectic world we live in we very rarely take time to compliment people for a job well done. As you know, I have been selling real estate for many years and have had many occasions to visit both your 3rd floor [mortgage & conveyance] office and copy center on Huey P. Long Ave. Your staff is the most efficient and friendly group of people that I have had the pleasure to work with.”

Brant Larrimer

December 20, 2001

 “I would like to compliment you and your staff for the excellent manner in which I was treated yesterday. I reported for jury duty as directed, but at approximately 10:00 A.M., I received a call from my wife concerning a family emergency. Her father went into a coma after being in ICU with cancer for the past three weeks. I was excused without the hassle of proving any of the above. The warm consideration of the circumstances at the time gives extra meaning to the season of giving we are in at present.”

Nathan F. Simoneaux, Jr.

October 18, 2001   

 “I wanted to bring to your attention the great attitude and wonderful assistance that I have experienced in your courthouse record rooms. You should also be aware of the exceptional service I receive from everyone at the Fourth Street records room, everyone at the Barbar Building and everyone at the Madison Street warehouse. I am looking forward to working with these people for years to come!”

Karen H. Myers

March 31, 2001

 “In my experience as a criminal trial and appellate attorney, I have many opportunities to work with different clerk offices all over the State obtaining materials for research purposes. In my opinion, [you have] one of the finest closed records departments within the state…Not only friendly and congenial, but competent and assisting. I never have to wait more than 2 – 3 minutes to request a closed file record.”

Kevin V. Boshea

January 24, 2001

 “As you know, I recently took office as a Judge in the Court of Appeal. I had served as Judge of Division A of the 24th Judicial District Court since May of 1995. I wish to thank [your staff] for untiring efforts in making the system work. These unselfish and dedicated people worked long hours without complaint…”

The Hon. Walter J. Rothschild, Judge, Louisiana 5th Circuit Court of Appeal

December 7, 2000

 “I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the outstanding service we received from your civil processing department. Each time we required documents to be filed…we addressed our requests to [your staff] and each time the requests were handled in an extremely efficient, prompt and courteous manner.”

Laura C. Poche

 “It was a pleasure meeting you today. You and your co-workers are so pleasant and helpful, particularly with someone who is unfamiliar with the intricacies of your system. I appreciate your patience and kind assistance!” Anita S. McCrossen August 24, 2000 “As an attorney, I recently had the opportunity to deal with your office and I wanted to let you know that your staff was very efficient and courteous…I want to commend your office for having such capable employees.”

Abraham Gerber

August 16, 2000   

 “I needed information regarding a suit and was put in touch with Terry Guidry in Records…I would like to say that Terry was so helpful and gracious in helping me get the information…She made my job easier and I was able to get the information in a timely manner.”

Janet N. Meyer

July 18, 2000

 “Monday I journeyed in this heat to obtain a document I needed on a sale of property at Grand Isle in 1982. I must tell you that your people were so kind and helpful that it made my day…All of your employees seem to be very happy in their work and I appreciate their kindnesses to me. I was back home in no time with fond memories of nice people in a busy world.”

R. Gibbens Robichaux
