Court Building and Jury Assembly Center

​What To Expect

Jurors begin by checking-in at the front desk in the Jury Assembly Center.  Orientation begins after check-in and covers everything you'll need to know to get you through the day. Wait time for trials varies; be prepared to wait in our Jury Center or in a location nearby for announcements. Lunch breaks are typically between 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. 

If you are selected to serve on a jury, trials are typically one to three days. Please plan to be at the Court for the duration of the trial. If all cases are resolved without proceeding to a jury trial, jurors will be excused from service.

Please plan on being at the Court until the end of the day.

Business casual is appropriate for jurors and you may find a sweater or jacket useful, as temperatures vary throughout the Court. Shorts, tank tops, and hats are not appropriate attire.
