Courts in Parramatta
Parramatta is the geographical centre of the Sydney Metropolitan area and a legal hub for surrounding suburbs, being the home of several courthouses.
Parramatta Local Court
Parramatta Local Court is located at 12 George Street, Parramatta.

(02) 8688 9602
12 George Street
PARRAMATTA NSW 2124
PO BOX 92
PARRAMATTA NSW 2124
The court has the jurisdiction (power) to hear and finalise many less-serious criminal and traffic cases, as well as to deal with the early stages of even the most serious types of cases before referring them to a higher court, such as the District or Supreme Court.
Proceedings that come before the court include bail applications, guilty pleas, driver licence appeals, committal proceedings (which are hearings to decide whether there’s enough evidence for a case to be referred to a higher court) and defended hearings – where a person pleads not guilty, witnesses later attend court to be questioned and the magistrate decides whether the prosecution has proven its case.
Parramatta District Court (Sydney West Trial Courts)
Parramatta District Court, which is officially called Sydney West Trial Courts, is located at 6 George Street, Parramatta – just across the road from the Local courthouse.

If you are going to court for a criminal or traffic offence in Parramatta, it is important to speak with a specialist defence lawyer as soon as possible, so you can obtain accurate advice about the laws that apply – including whether the allegations are deficient in any legal respect and whether any legal defences may be available – your options including in relation to how you should plead, the process and the best way forward to ensure you achieve the optimal outcome in the circumstances.
It is a good idea to look for a firm that specialises in criminal and traffic cases, rather than a general legal practice that spreads itself over many areas of law.
It is also a good idea to seek a firm that is not strictly fees- oriented – such as one that offers a free first appointment as well as the transparency and certainty of a fixed fee structure.
Who are the best lawyers in Parramatta?
Finding the best lawyer and law firm for your particular situation can involve finding out whether they specialise in the area of law that covers your legal issue, whether they regularly attend the courthouse in which your case is being heard (especially whether they have offices in the area), their level of experience, whether they have a long and proven track record of achieving positive outcomes, and carefully considering their reviews from previous clients.
Transparency in costs and affordability are also important, so it’s a good idea to look for a law firm that offers fixed fees, as well as a free first appointment to assess whether they’re the right lawyers for you.
