Nassau County Supreme Court

I live on Long Island, my office is here, and I frequently litigate in Nassau County.

Nassau County Supreme Court
100 Supreme Court Drive
Mineola, New York 11501




HISTORY

Nassau and Queens were a single county until the turn of the Twentieth Century, but split when New York City consolidated in 1898. Nassau officially became its own County on January 1, 1899, and the cornerstone of the first Nassau County Courthouse was laid by Theodore Roosevelt, a resident of Oyster Bay, in July 1900. After extensive renovations, this first courthouse was renamed the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in 2008, and is now the home of the County legislature.

The Roosevelt Courthouse was the home of the Nassau County Supreme Court from 1900 through 1940. In 1940, a larger building was erected, and held both the Supreme Court and the County Court (which hears cases under $25,000). In 1965, the Supreme Court received a new building, its current home, located at 100 Supreme Court drive.
