Throughout the professional career of Judge Pittman, the role of difference maker has been fully embraced by the Judge.

I am the Honorable Gregory C. Pittman, and I have served as Muskegon County Probate Court Judge since my appointment, by Gov. John Engler, in January, 1998. It is my honor and privilege to presently serve, by appointment of the Michigan Supreme Court, as the Chief Judge of both the 14th Circuit and 61st Probate Courts, for the County of Muskegon.

After years of our local bench advocating and making the case for the addition of a new 14th Circuit Court Judgeship, The Muskegon County Board of Commissioners and the Michigan State Legislature, this year, voted their respective approvals of adding that judgeship. On February 9, 2022, Governor Gretchen Whitmer gave her approval and signed into law the establishment of the new 14th Circuit Court Judgeship for Muskegon County.

This new 14th Circuit Court Judgeship will greatly improve the public’s access to timely resolution of their legal matters and enhance the delivery of justice in Muskegon County, and I am proud of my role in helping bring this new judgeship into existence.

The person who will be seated in the new 14th Circuit Court judgeship will be voted upon in the upcoming November 8, 2022 election cycle, and will begin hearing cases January 1, 2023.

It is against this backdrop that I come to you today, humbly and enthusiastically, announcing my Candidacy for Judge of the 14th Circuit Court in the upcoming November 8, 2022 election cycle. I am not the incumbent for this position as it is a newly created judgeship.

I am seeking your support and ultimately your vote to be your new 14th Circuit Court Judge. If elected to this new non-incumbent office, I would most likely act in the same capacity that I now act as the Chief Judge of both the Circuit and Probate Courts of Muskegon County, and hopefully maintain my primary docket as Family Court Judge.


Get In Touch!

I would love to hear from YOU! I am committed to serving this community to the best of my ability with integrity.
