Meet Suzanne EddinsA New Clerk of Court

Suzanne grew up in her hometown of Chesterfield, SC. A graduate of Chesterfield High School, she earned her B.S. from Francis Marion University; her paralegal certification from Midlands Technical College; and her Victim Service Provider certification with the Fourth Circuit Solicitor’s Office. With over 20 years of legal experience, Suzanne was inspired to run for Clerk of Court by her late mother, Elizabeth V. “Libby” Eddins, who served as Clerk of Court from 1981-2002. In addition to her work for the County, Suzanne assists her father, Billy Eddins, in operating the family farm.

As Clerk, Suzanne will …

  • Improve communication between agencies including local law enforcement, the Solicitor’s office, and County offices.
  • Implement consistent procedures within the Clerk’s office to ensure everyone gets the same high level of service they expect and deserve.
  • Manage the court schedule efficiently so that all parties can be served quickly and in the most effective manner for taxpayers.
  • Put constituents first. People contact the Clerk’s office during challenging times in their lives. Fostering a better understanding of how the Clerk’s office operates with an open-door policy can help make these times easier.

What are the responsibilities of a Clerk of Court?

I have been asked over the years, “What exactly does a Clerk of Court do?” In summary, a Clerk of Court is an elected county official serving a four-year term who is responsible for managing General Sessions (Criminal Court), Common Pleas (Civil Court), and Family Court. Some of the many duties of a Clerk of Court include maintaining court records, providing docket management, jury management, and overseeing the receipt of fees, fines, and costs. A Clerk’s duties also extend to maintaining positive relationships with court officials, judges, attorneys, and law enforcement in order to communicate effectively.

A detailed breakdown of procedures and duties can be found in the Clerk of Court’s Manual at
