If you are there just to pick up and drop off paper work, it's fast. If you are here for a court case, good luck, it's a waiting nightmare. Dockets are overbooked, judges are precocious and it's all about who knows who. Make sure you have a the best attorney money can buy or get ready there's no Vaseline.

Food is not bad and there is a variety from which to choose. It is always crowded and noisy but that it because it is crowded.

Great Architecture, starting place to handle many business, personal and legal matters. Mostly friendly and helpful staff will guide you to where you need to go. Hopefully you are not on trial there or it could be a different outlook, but this building has history and purpose.

People visit this County Courthouse because it is beautiful. It has a warm feeling while doing such cold business. People go there to get marriage licenses, and other types. They go there to meet with attorneys They pay traffic tickets there and attend court hearings for all kinds of reasons..

A walk through the courthouse is like a walk through time. Impeccable details and beauty. Take a moment to look at the newly restored County Commissioners Court. It's breathtaking!

San Antonio is still conducting Civil cases in this beautiful building. During voting it is done in the basemen here. At Christmas it is decorated in white lights that outline the building. You can see the signs on the building that show what the prior street name was. This is a historic building.
