Know whether your Fairfax case is at the county courthouse or Fairfax City Hall

When charged with a misdemeanor criminal, DUI  or traffic infraction case in Fairfax, Virginia, it is important to check the case charging document to determine whether the matter is being prosecuted in the Fairfax City Hall at 10455 Armstrong Street, Fairfax, VA 22030, or the Fairfax County courthouse at 4110 Chain Bridge Road.

The Fairfax City General District Court proceeds every Tuesday and Thursday at the City Hall at 10455 Armstrong Street, Fairfax, VA 22030. City misdemeanor cases and traffic infraction cases are prosecuted by chief prosecutor John Kassabian, who is an attorney with a private law practice in Annandale, Virginia, and his assistant prosecutors.

Fairfax criminal lawyer Jon Katz’s office is two blocks from the Fairfax City Hall, and he has been defending Fairfax City cases for years.

Specifics about the court

The ten General District Court judges for Fairfax City cases are the same as for Fairfax County cases.

The city covers only six square miles and has a population of around 24, 000 people. Many non-residents come to and through the city each day, with its many businesses, government buildings, county courthouse, and key crossroads.

Unlike Fairfax County’s remaining two incorporated cities/towns of Herndon and Vienna, the city has its own full-time General District Court clerk’s office, whereas the Herndon and Vienna General District Court clerks work out of the Fairfax County courthouse on days that those towns do not have court.

The Fairfax County General District Court Administrative Procedures cover Fairfax City as well.

The courthouse has ample free surface parking, entered either from Chain Bridge Road or Armstrong Street. The parking spaces in the front of the City Hall are reserved for handicapped people.

Our clients, their friends, family and witnesses are always invited to park at our office, at 10509 Judicial Drive, Fairfax, Virginia 22030. They may obtain a dashboard parking pass from our staff.
