Welcome to the Elko Township Justice and City of Elko Municipal Courts


The Elko Township Justice and City of Elko Municipal Courts are some of the busiest in Nevada.  

This website is designed to help court users learn about and best use court services. 

The Elko Justice/Municipal Court is located in the basement of the Elko County Courthouse in downtown Elko, Nevada.


There are two main entrances into the Courthouse.  The first is off of Court Street and the second is a Handicapped accessible ramp located on George Re Boucher DR (6th ST).

Once through security, go downstairs and you will see our civil window directly in front of you. Our civil window can assist you with protection orders, evictions, general civil suits and small claims. 

If you need assistance with criminal records, payments, traffic citations or infractions etc., please follow the blue footprints to our front office.

Weddings and anyone with a traffic citation must check in with the front office first before going to a courtroom. 


If you have court and you are not sure where to go, check our digital docket display.  Just find your name and all of the information is listed next to it.  The displays near security show information for both courtrooms.  Displays near the individual courtrooms only show information for that specific courtroom.
