Staffing and Caseloads
This section presents information about staff capacity, caseload distribution, and staff characteristics.
Why is this important? Understanding how we staff our office helps to ensure that the office is spending its resources wisely, has enough people to be effective, and is supporting staff recruitment.
The Seventh Judicial District consists of six counties - Montrose, Delta, Gunnison, Ouray, San Miguel, and Hinsdale. This is one of the largest districts, geographically in the state. Attorney assignments are based on court locations in each county. As a result, the caseloads in our biggest jurisdictions, Montrose and Delta, will be significantly higher then in our smaller jurisdictions.
