198th & 216th District Courts

The Honorable M. Patrick Maguire (198th) and The Honorable Albert D. Pattillo, III (216th)

The District Courts are the trial courts of general jurisdiction of Texas. The geographical area served by each court is established by the Legislature, but each county must be served by at least one District Court. In sparsely populated areas of the State, several counties may be served by a single District Court, while an urban county may be served by many District Courts.

District Courts have original jurisdiction in felony criminal cases, divorce cases, cases involving title to land, election contest cases and civil matters in which the amount of money or damages involved is $200 or more.
