McMillan Award 2015 Finalist – Miguel Navarro

In the second of three articles recognizing McMillan Award finalists, we present Miguel Navarro from the ITO Central Office in the Administrative Office of the Courts in Trenton, NJ and his (and Robert Jacobsen’s) CTC-2015 presentation.


McMillan Award finalist Miguel Navarro has developed and designed several mobile applications and is currently in the process of developing and designing more.  In particular, he developed and designed New Jersey Juror, a mobile application for Jury Duty in the state of New Jersey.

Co-presenting at CTC-2015 was Robert Jacobsen, Senior Project Manager for Applications Development, who first noticed Miguel’s skills and interest in Mobile Technologies and challenged Miguel to create an application for the Judiciary.  Miguel showed up the next day with the prototype, which he developed in four hours the night before.  With the support of Judge Glenn A. Grant, J.A.D., Jack McCarthy (CIO, New Jersey Judiciary ITO), and many others from the State of New Jersey Judiciary, the mobile application was released.

The New Jersey Juror Mobile Application has over 20,000 downloads for the iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile platforms.  After the successful release of the New Jersey Juror app, Miguel has also developed, designed and released New Jersey Attorney, a mobile application for attorneys who practice in the State of New Jersey, and New Jersey Judicial College App, a mobile application for judges and judiciary employees attending the Judicial College event that contains schedules, event agendas, class materials, etc.

Here is the link to the CTC-2015 session web page with the slide decks and links to the other apps they have developed.

But enough with the introduction.  Here is the link Miguel and Robert’s presentation from CTC-2015 that is supported by some very entertaining videos.  I know you will enjoy it as much as I did.


Congratulations to Miguel for the well-deserved recognition and everyone in New Jersey who supported this great work.
