The Boone County Courthouse is located at 705 E. Walnut Street in downtown Columbia, Missouri. If you need to appear in court for whatever reason or are a client of our firm and need to make an appearance, we have compiled this blog to answer common questions we often receive at our firm.
In front of the Courthouse (pictured above), there are four columns which run along Walnut Street. Here are some other important things to know about the Courthouse:
- Only attorneys and Court personnel are permitted to bring their cellphones into the Courthouse. If you are not an attorney and do not work at the Court, do not bring your cellphone into the Courthouse. You will be asked to leave and return without it. The bailiffs will not hold onto your phone for you.
- There is a metal detector at the front entrance. You will be asked to empty all items and remove anything from your person that might set the metal detector off. This is for your safety and the safety of others at the Courthouse. Arrive early and expect a line. Don’t bring a gun into the Courthouse.
