The Courtroom

We are located at 800 South C Street, Virginia City, Nevada 89440. 
Arrive at least 15 minutes early.  Check in with the Justice Court Clerk who will then direct you to the courtroom. Depending on the number of cases, you may have to wait. Traffic arraignments are usually on a "stacked" calendar which means that several cases may be scheduled at the same time. The schedule, however, usually moves along quickly.
