I represented myself in a legal matter in Island County Superior Court and had a memorable experience on many levels. What I want to say here is how helpful the clerk’s staff was. They are not allowed to give legal help, which is understandable. But in every other regard, they answered my many questions, gave emotional support, and in general were kind, patient and cheerful. I couldn’t have asked for more. For Debra Van Pelt and all her trusted staff, a big thank you.
