Marin County

All traffic, DUI and criminal cases in Marin County are prosecuted at the Marin County Civic Center in San Rafael.  The Superior Court is located on floor C of the historic Frank Lloyd Wright designed Civic Center built in 1957.

The C, court, floor is accessible only through the middle arch of the building and can be reached by the lobby elevator or stairs. 

Traffic matters are typically heard in courtroom N by one of the traffic court commissioners.  Misdemeanor DUI and criminal cases are handled on a pre-trial level in courtroom M and are assigned to judges in other courtrooms for motion hearings and trial calling.

Felony matters are arraigned in courtroom M but are transferred to other courtrooms to be heard by judges for preliminary hearings and trials.

Client Reviews
In today’s time and turmoil, it is truly rare to find an individual to be so knowledgeable, honest, and integrity not compromised. A rare asset “a gem” to the profession. For anyone seeking legal counsel. I say go no further then Attorney John Stanko. Mr. Stanko is able, dependable, and if all possible will help to resolve your situation. A fine gentleman indeed! Dr. Henri and Evelyn LePre
Dear John Stanko, I'm sorry this is so late! But I want you to know how much I appreciate your understanding and your expertise in court! You are a great lawyer and I thank-you so much for helping us in a time of need. I wish you much success in all that you set out to do. Rose B.
When I first called John Stanko for his services, he was professional and courteous. Although I was a first time client, he accommodated me to make the process as easy as possible. John was very prompt in returning my phone calls and followed up with my cases in a timely manner. I had several cases in two counties along with a suspended license case which John took care of.
