Maintaining a dialogue on divorce, child custody, alimony and other family law issues

From the Boston Bar Journal: One Mission: Justice with Dignity and Speed

by Chief Justice of the Trial Court Paula Carey

Voice of the Judiciary

I am deeply honored, excited and humbled to have been chosen as Chief Justice of the Trial Court.  My appointment at this point in the history of the Trial Court is a unique opportunity to help define the new position of Chief Justice and to establish the framework for the future governance of the Trial Court by partnering with the Court Administrator and the Trial Court Chief Justices.  I look forward to collaborating and working to develop policies and programs to support and maintain a vibrant, innovative system of justice that inspires public trust and confidence.

The new governance structure teams the Chief Justice with the Court Administrator, so that we can lead the Trial Court with one voice.  Court Administrator Harry Spence and I are working in a spirit of collaboration, confidence, and teamwork to provide the system with strong and effective leadership.

These are exciting times for the Massachusetts judiciary.  I believe we have the energy, enthusiasm and willingness to embrace the changes required for the delivery of justice in the 21st century.   My foundation has always been energy, enthusiasm, passion and commitment.    Since I was young I have wanted to make a difference – a human difference.
