Virginia has a three-tiered court system in which all criminal trials are heard by the trial courts. Virginia has two types of trial courts, district courts and circuit courts. District courts handle less serious misdemeanor cases, while the circuit courts handle felony cases. District courts also hear preliminary hearings for felony cases. if the case survives the preliminary hearing, it is then transferred to the circuit court. Thus, regardless of the type of case you face, it will almost certainly start off in the district court.
While the Fairfax District Court does not hold jury trials for misdemeanor cases, anyone found guilty in a district court has an automatic right to appeal in the corresponding circuit court.
The Fairfax County District Court as well as the Fairfax County Circuit Court are both located at:
4110 Chain Bridge Road, Room 204
