The Southwest Justice Center, Murrieta Courthouse is part of the Riverside Superior Court system.
The Southwest Justice Center, Murrieta Courthouse was built to serve the growing population in the area of Riverside County that it serves, and three other courts – Lake Elsinore, Perris, and Hemet, were closed or limited when Murrieta opened. Since there is a jail built as part of the complex, and a Riverside County Sheriff’s office, the structure saves money by reducing travel time and consolidating county costs together. You can find information on the jail, or find someone that has been arrested and is being held at the Southwest Detention Center website.
The court has told attorneys that practice in this courthouse that there is a shortage of attorneys in this courthouse. Not only is the public defender’s office here very much overloaded and overworked, but there are not enough local lawyers to handle the need for lawyers here. Many people in this local area need a Murrieta DUI lawyer, so we keep a law firm office in Murrieta to help the courts, and to help clients.
