Oklahoma City Courthouses

Last updated: October 17, 2013

Oklahoma City. It's one of only two capital cities with their state name as part of the city name. The other is Indianapolis, Indiana. It's a growing metropolitan with over 600,000 people living in the city alone.

"OKC" is known for many diverse things -- the infamous "Land Run" of the late 1800’s, a beloved basketball team, The Thunder, a National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum including the Rodeo Hall of Fame, its strong Native American presence, the Amateur Softball Association of America headquarters, and Historic Route 66.

If you're an Oklahoman living in Oklahoma County, you know there are several of courthouses in the area. If you have a criminal, civil, probate or family law matter, it's likely in the District Court.

Here we've highlighted several key court systems you’ll most likely encounter: the Oklahoma Supreme Court, the Criminal Court of Appeals, the Civil Court of Appeals, the Workers' Compensation Court, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma, and the U.S Bankruptcy Court.
