Judi O'Leary

Senior Clerk

Cleveland Municipal Court, Clerk's Office


Judi was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and has lived here her whole life. She comes from a large family, but is the only person from her family with a career in Public Service. Before beginning a career with the Clerk’s Office, Judi was a stay at home mom.

Judi has been an employee with the Cleveland Municipal Clerk of Courts office since 1990. With 30 years of service, Judi has demonstrated a devotion to duty, has given wise counsel to the public and attorneys and possesses the desire to help the public and members of the Bench and Bar with patience and courtesy.

 If she didn’t work in Public Service, Judi would love a career working closely with children. Judi has four grandchildren and loves to see the look on their faces whenever they learn something new.
