A Message from Chief Justice
Paul A. Suttell
Chief Justice Paul A. Suttell
        Welcome to the Rhode Island Judiciary’s website. We have added a number of features to our home page in conjunction with the recent implementation of the electronic filing system and access to case information. In the Self-help Center on this page, attorneys and self-represented litigants will find useful information on these new systems, which are designed to modernize your court transactions with the latest technology. In civil cases, attorneys and self-represented litigants may file court papers from the convenience of any Internet connection. Case information may be accessed and documents viewed from any of the public computers in our courthouses. Some of our more popular features, including court calendars, criminal information search, and contact information, may be found in the Quick Links on the right side of this page. Court forms and attorney search are among the many selections under the Public Resources section at the top of this page. I hope you will find these pages easy to use and helpful in finding what you need.


        In our mission to administer justice while maintaining our independence, we are duty bound to act with unfailing honor to serve and protect the ideals of democracy for the citizens of this state.
