Berrien and Van Buren County Courts are leading the way in increasing efficiency in their courts and improving service to the public, according to the Michigan Supreme Court. 

Last month Chief Judge Kathleen Brickley, of the 36th Circuit Court in Van Buren County, and Judge Mabel Johnson Mayfield, in the family division of the Berrien County Trial Court, were profiled in “Michigan’s Judiciary Success Stories: How Michigan Judges Are Driving Change,” a 28-page booklet released by the Michigan Supreme Court.
