Clerk of Court: Doug Welborn
Chief Deputy: Greg Brown
Administrative Accounting: Gerard Hall


The administrative office performs many functions on a daily basis, effectively interacting with all areas of the Clerk of Court's office and its procedures. Housed in this area are the offices of Clerk of Court Doug Welborn and his top administrator: Chief Deputy Greg Brown. The two work closely together in determining and revising policy and procedures for all of the departments; reviewing all incoming and outgoing financial and procedural data and reports; assisting the departmental heads in finding solutions to unique situations and inquires; and addressing the many public requests for information of a general administrative nature.

Clerk Doug Welborn takes pride in an excellent staff, well trained to offer the public the best service available. This has added immeasurably to the successful operation of the Clerk of Court's office.


The East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court’s Office will reopen its operations on Monday, May 18.  However, the City Hall, Archives and Airline Branch offices will not be open to public traffic until Wednesday, May 20 upon City-Parish clearance.  Upon reopening, the Clerk of Court’s hours will be 8:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.
