Old court house in Natchez, Mississippi. Stately antebellum style with columns. Inside old but attractive in its own way. Not a modern court room but large and comfortable.

Called to pay my ticket, was informed of the wrong amount so when I called to make the payment it was rejected for an incorrect amount. This could have turned into a serious issue if I didn’t catch it in time and see my emails stating the refund was issued. Staff needs to be more on top of it and not give out misinformation. Could’ve had an arrest warrant for failure to pay if I didn’t catch it in time all because someone didn’t do their job properly.

Had to stop in to pay an overdue speeding ticket issued to me by MS State Policeman, Derrick. NIce enough guy and did an excellent job representing the public safety interest of the great state of MIssissippi. The ladies who worked in the Grenada County Justice Court could not have been more pleasant and hospitable and DEFINITELY PROFESSIONAL. They were so kind and friendly and helpful that I'd almost speed again thru their jurisdiction to have to stop back through and pay them a visit.

We applied for a marriage license at this location. EVERYONE was extremly nice and helpful. Upon return to file the license, they all remembered us and offered their congratulations. It was a lovely experience. Many other government offices should take note.

Pleasant experience for myself, though experiences may vary due to reason of visit... just saying.

Beautiful building downtown in Oxford. Never been inside, but that’s probably a good thing given it’s a courthouse.



From my perspective as a Jackson lawyer this district has not only 2 good, impartial judges but friendly and hard working staff.

A place that solely exists to take money from citizens and postpone the sentences of true criminals

My work led me to the Lawrence County Justice Court in Monticello MS today. They are Awesome! Friendly, Professional and Organized to the Max. Thanks for your kindness and assistance today!

Please remember, at election time, the women working on every capacity in county and circuit court inside this building are corrupt. They, including Camille Roberts, the clerk, are racist and support corrupt businesses. Businesses that hurt citizens of Lee County. The citizens of Lee County are only important here during election time. These women have a lot of friends that will excuse their behavior. They'll lie in order to keep their positions. They'll lie and say they aren't racist. They'll lie and say they don't help corrupt businesses. They'll lie and say they do support the citizens of Lee County and Tupelo, MS. Do not be misled. It's time to put these women out of this court house. ALL OF THEM. It's time to start fresh. I can name names and I will when the time comes. These women will continue to ruin the name of Tupelo and any strides toward a better tomorrow. These women hold legal documents that judges need to make decisions. They hurt families and children. Yes, these are the women of the County and Circuit court. They are not following the law. Many don't care to know. They are following their own rules. It's like a high school clique. If they know you and like you, and you're white, they'll help you. However, if you're on the other side and their corrupt friend(s) need protecting they've mastered how to make that happen and the judges obey.

One if the lady is very rude and short on answering questions! Maybe having bad day but not helpful at all. Not a good impression for someone who just move to the area. So far not impressed!

The Justice Court resides over a myriad of matters, from civil suits to delinquent mobile home taxes. Traffic tickets issued by the State Highway Patrol and the Marion County Sheriff's Department are resolved in the Justice Court, as well as Public Service tickets, Gaming, Fishing and Marine Reserve tickets. This Court hears all matters with regard to DUIs and violations of County ordinances. All felony cases are first heard in the Justice Court for initial appearance and the filing of affidavit. Judges from this office have court sessions at the jail three times each week to ensure each person's right to have an initial court appearance within three days of arrest. The following Judges preside over the Marion County Justice Court: District 1 Hon. Brandon Paul Rowell District 2 Hon. Gwen W. Broom

I had 3 traffic tickets that’s all. Court starts at 9. Judge shows up at 9:30 - 10 am. As court proceedings continue time passes and before I knew it it was almost 2 o clock. I never spoke never heard my name never moved from my seat until my name was called. There was people just leaving because they know someone in court. It was unprofessional, unorganized, they were rude and if someone spoke back they caught an attitude. I was told that my name was called and was not called. I never stopped paying attention. Then proceed to tell me that I have to NOW WAIT UNTIL SHE STARTS BACK OVER AGAIN!!!!!???? 5 HOURS I SAT IN COURT WAITING TO BE CALLED ON FOR A TRAFFIC TICKET AFTER YOU CLEAR AN ENTIRE ROOM OF PEOPLE AND I GOT TO WAIT AGAIN? I’m a very patient person but when I’ve been patient and complying to the rules and get told this wouldn’t you be mad? Makes no sense how every court room other than Holly springs are more organized more professional and have a better system. Byhalia has a way better court and is smaller than holly springs. What’s up with that

Not professional. Police on phones and sleeping in court room. This is a money court there’s no justice

No justice can be found in that building. They played a willing participant in the extortion of a US veteran.
