Nassau County Jury Duty

Jury Duty Service Phone #: (516) 493-3334

If you have been called for jury duty in Nassau County, you will be reporting to the main jury room on the first floor of the 100 Supreme Court Drive building. Bring a fully charged phone or something to read, as you may be there a while.

When you arrive, you’ll find parking easier on the south-side of the building. The North side closer to Old Country Road has employee-only parking, and you will get an expensive ticket if you park in the wrong place. The lot behind the courthouse (on the south side of the building) has plenty of free parking open to the public.

When you enter the building for jury duty, you’ll pass through metal detectors. You’ll then be directed to the main jury room where a lovely yet powerful Irish woman will tell you that you’re not special (everyone has to serve for jury duty). You will then be shown a video presentation about your responsibilities as a juror, and you’ll wait for your name to be called to a smaller room. There, you will be asked some unassuming questions by lawyers in expensive suits who have waited many years for this trial date, and will be excited to meet you. If you give the magic answers, you may just find yourself serving on a jury.¬† Trials can last anywhere from a day to 3 months. You’ll be told approximately how long each trial will be, and you will be asked the maximum time period you can reasonably serve if chosen.¬†

If you have some sort of issue where you can’t serve, you will have the opportunity to let them know. But chances are, you’ll be waiting around for a while.

If you’re given a break while waiting to be called, there’s a small room next door to this room with couches, a TV and vending machines. Go exploring. This room also has a row of old fashioned phone booths, with phone books from the 1990s still inside. Come to think of it, the snacks in the vending machine may also be from the 1990s. So you may want to bring your own snack.

There’s lots of great corners of this courthouse that have been untouched for decades. And for better or worse, you may uncover them during jury duty. Good luck, and thanks for serving!

The Nassau County Supreme Court Building
100 Supreme Court Drive, Mineola - 1960s

Nassau County Supreme Court

The Nassau County Supreme Court building at 100 Supreme Court Drive in Mineola, New York, was originally built in the 1960s to accommodate the growing number of cases in Nassau County and has since been expanded and renovated several times. This is the “functional” courthouse in the complex, and is where most of the day-to-day Supreme Court operations take place.

In addition to its use as a courthouse, the Nassau County Supreme Court building has also been used as a filming location for several movies and television shows, including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and the film Reversal of Fortune.

The courthouse underwent a major renovation in 2005, which included the installation of new security measures such as metal detectors and X-ray machines. In 2013, the building was renamed the “Peter T. Farrell Judicial Complex” in honor of the late Nassau County legislator who was instrumental in securing funding for the renovation.

The Nassau County Courthouse
Old Country Road, Mineola - 1930s

Historical Nassau County Court, Mineola

Across the parking lot on the other side of the courthouse square sits the old Nassau County Court building. This older, more adorned “historical” courthouse used to be the main courthouse before the building on 100 Supreme Court Drive was constructed. It was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2021, and is now a national landmark.

In the past this building has been the site of a ton of sensational trials such as the Weinstein kidnapping, the Colin Ferguson LIRR shooting trial, the Amy Fisher trial (known as the “Long Island Lolita” involving Joey Buttafuco), and serial killer Joel Rifkin. It’s hosted happier moments as well, with both actor Henry Fonda and singer Bob Dylan getting married to their wives here.

But perhaps this building is best known for its architecture. The beautiful sandstone building on Old Country Road was built in the 1930s, and based on a design for the Lincoln Memorial. Bronze torchieres adorn the outside entranceways. Sculptures and gargoyles adorn the outside. Scenes of judicial life play out around the overhead, leaving no doubt this is a place to be judged.

But the inside is just as impressive. The awe-inspiring Roman-esque interior showcases adorned roman-style columns and limestone walls with visible embedded fossils. Sold marble steps leads you to the courtroom entranceway. You can feel the history of this building with every step.

 Overall, these Nassau County Supreme Court buildings have such a rich history and play an important role in the legal system of Nassau County and beyond.

Other Notable Facts about Nassau County Supreme Court

Moe Levine, Nassau County Trial Lawyer 1908-1974

In the legal community, Moe Levine was perhaps one of the greatest trial lawyers of all time. He conducted over 2,000 civil jury trials, most of them in Nassau County Supreme Court.

His lectures and books on trial advocacy and litigation techniques inspired generations of trial lawyers. Many of America’s leading trial lawyers credit Moe Levine for their ability to work a courtroom and advocate their personal injury cases to a jury. And Moe developed those skills and concepts right here in Nassau County Supreme Court. No self-respecting trial lawyer would write about this courthouse without giving a professional nod to the contributions and genius of Mr. Levine.
