Getting Around the Court
If you see a guy in a parka with a sled dog, you are in the right place and looking at a statute of Admiral Byrd. Leave your cell phone in your car, go through the front doors and the metal detector.
The general district court is up the stairs (elevators are to the right). The court “2D” to the back, left is where most DWIs are held. Check for your name on the docket board right outside the courtroom.
The Commonwealth Attorney’s Office is also located on the second floor.
There is a small clerk’s office right outside Courtroom 2D where you can take care of any fines and restricted license. A larger clerk’s office is located on the first floor.
