San Antonio is the second most populated city in Texas and the seventh most populated in the United States, boasting over 1.3 million people. The city is notable for many things---Spanish missions, the San Antonio Spurs, the Alamo, and numerous military bases.

If you have a court case and live in the Bexar County area, you know there are a variety of courthouses servicing the Greater San Antonio metropolitan area.  If you have a criminal, civil, probate or family law matter, it’s likely in one of the district, county, or municipal courts.
