Williamson County Courthouse Location and Parking
It is very common to be confused about basic matters such as the location of the Williamson county courthouse and jail in Georgetown, Tx, where to park for a court appearance, and where specific Williamson county criminal courts are located. If you've been accused of a state felony or misdemeanor in Williamson County, you'll attend scheduled court appearances at the courthouse which is located just two blocks from our Georgetown office.
Williamson County Justice Center
405 M.L.K. Street
Georgetown, TX 78626
The Williamson County Justice Center houses all courts for both felony and misdemeanor cases in the county.
Court Website For Checking Case Information
Williamson county provides this handy website which enables anyone to check on past and current court dates for criminal and civil cases in both misdemeanor and felony courts as well as some J.P. courts. The same website enables jail inmate searches, which provides information on past jailings as well as present ones.
Arriving at the Williamson County Courthouse
You'll find plenty of free parking around the Williamson County Justice Center, and local attorney and bail bondsman offices are stationed nearby. It's best to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled court time, so you can find parking, locate the court room, and chat with your attorney about last-minute details.
The entrance to the courthouse is controlled and you will have to enter through a metal detector. Slacks or clean jeans and a neat, tidy shirt are perfectly appropriate for court.
A free parking lot is located across the street from the courthouse, and you might get a spot there if you are early. There is also a free parking garage adjacent to the lot which always has spaces available. Do not park on the street, as the local police department occasionally decides to ticket street parkers around the courthouse en masse. The only entrance open to the public is at the corner of 4th street and MLK.
You can ensure that your appearance goes smoothly by following the courtroom conduct and clothing rules. Weapons of any type, recording devices, gum, food, and drinks are prohibited inside the building; they may be confiscated and not returned. Cell phones should of course be silenced prior to entering courtrooms or they may be taken up if they begin ringing during court proceedings.

County Court at Law #1
Judge Suzanne Brooks
If you or a loved one has just been charged with a criminal offense in Williamson County, you may be wondering what happens next. Fortunately, while your case is unique, the criminal court process follows a predictable pattern. You and your lawyer will attend multiple court appearances. The first few appearances in misdemeanor cases generally don't require you to appear before a judge if you have hired an attorney. Clients must appear at all felony court appearances in Williamson county. These appearances will continue approximately monthly as your attorney works out a resolution and final disposition of your case. On occasion, you may also attend pre-trial and motions hearings, and there may even be a jury trial if no agreed resolution can be reached.
Since the consequences for criminal charges can be severe, you shouldn't leave your situation to chance--never attend court appearances without skilled legal representation. If you're financially able, you'll want to hire a Williamson County Criminal Defense Lawyer like Russ who understands the rules and laws affecting your case, as well as Williamson County's unique court system.
