Ithaca Lawyer Practicing DWI Defense in Elmira City Court, Chemung County New York

Elmira City Court is an Amazing Historic Building

Chemung county sits just a little South of Ithaca, NY, and it's a straight shot down Route 13 over hill and dale, so to speak. The great thing about going to Elmira besides the mall, and the wide assortment of restaurants (Ithaca has NO Olive Garden, NO TGIF, NO Red Lobster, NO Sam's Club, NO Macy's, etc. etc. etc) is the ease of Elmira City Court. They have two main Court rooms, and the pace here is brisk.
One of the Judges ran through an arraignment (initial appearance) so fast here once my head was spinning in comparison to the slower town courts.

Just last week I was here for a DWI PTC (Pre-Trial Conference), interestingly they keep you locked out from the Courtroom (one at a time here) for security reasons and there was no A/C running so it was hot. Apparently the A/C is set on a main timer, and it was not time for it to run. The Judge, the prosecutor, and I were sweating while discussing the case, it was comical, talk about cruel and unusual punishment.

Anyway, the beautiful old City Courthouse sits two blocks down from a DD (Dunkin Donuts), and a nice gas station so basic needs are easily met. There is usually plenty of on the street inexpensive meter parking. Just across the street, and a few blocks down is the Chemung County Courthouse as well.

                                               Beautiful Elmira City Court, I love this old building.
