New Trial Court Administrator Assigned in Burlington Vicinage

Assignment Judge John A. Sweeney, Burlington Vicinage, has announced the appointment of Jude Del Preore as trial court administrator, effective Nov.15.

Under New Jersey court rules, the administrative director of the courts appoints the trial court administrator in each vicinage. Acting Administrative Director Philip S. Carchman said that he named Mr. Del Preore on the strong recommendation of Judge Sweeney.

The trial court administrator is the highest ranking staff executive in the vicinage in charge of all court operations, including financial management, human resources, information systems, case coordination, case flow management, probation services, jury utilization, facilities, equipment, maintenance, records management and statistical analysis.

A Burlington County resident, Mr. Del Preore joins the Burlington Vicinage from Mercer Vicinage, where he has served as trial court administrator since 1997. "Jude will bring to Burlington Vicinage his extensive experience in managing Mercer's busy court operations," said Judge Sweeney. "I am delighted that he will be joining our vicinage and am confident that we will benefit greatly from his leadership, his vision and his dedication."

Mr. Del Preore has nearly 30 years of experience with the court system. He has held positions in the Family Division and the Probation Division before taking on the role of trial court administrator. He holds a bachelor's degree from Rutgers University as well as a master's-level certificate in public management from Kean University. He is a fellow of the Institute for Court Management of the National Center for State Courts. Currently he serves as president of the Mid-Atlantic Association for Court Management and on the board of directors for the National Association for Court Management.

Mr. Del Preore resides in Moorestown with his wife Penny and their sons Matthew and Adam. "I am excited to be working with the judges and staff in my home county," he said.
