Court information for criminal matters, by County

The following court information for criminal matters, by County, is provided to assist clients in obtaining public records about their court case.

First and foremost, we encourage you to communicate with your attorney, and their support staff, for updates regarding your matter.

By discussing your case with your attorney, you will have access to the most recent and up-to-date information. While public records can provide information, only a conversation with your attorney can provide context. Therefore, frequently communicating with your attorney will allow you to ask questions to understand your case’s progress. Also, these communications provide opportunities for you to give your attorney any new information they might need to know. Nothing can replace good communication between a lawyer and their client.

Obviously, there will be times when your attorney may be out of the office and unable to answer the phone. Not only do they have appearances in court, but also client meetings and work on legal research and writing, which require focus. In this case, your call will be reviewed and returned based on attorney availability, and priority order in the attorney’s schedule. So, speaking to your attorney’s staff may be a more available resource if you need to communicate quickly. Often, legal assistants can help you relay important information to your attorney or get an update on your case when your attorney is unavailable.
