If you have been living on the New Hampshire Seacoast for a long time, you may remember when the Hampton District Court was located in the historic Old Hampton Grammar School (and also one-time firehouse) at the corner of Winnacunnet Road and Academy Avenue in downtown Hampton. The old courthouse was closed in 2005 due to black mold and other issues, and the building was demolished in 2013. The court moved to a “temporary” location in Seabrook, and, as part of a judicial branch reorganization, the was later renamed the 10th Circuit Court – District Division – Seabrook. The temporary courthouse, which was located on the first floor of an office building, was often overcrowded, difficult to find, and had limited parking.

In 2016, a new site for the courthouse was finally secured, once again in Hampton, and in January of 2019 the new Hampton courthouse opened. The court, now called the 10th Circuit Court – District Division – Hampton, is located at 3 Timber Swamp Road in Hampton (click here for directions). The court has jurisdiction over misdemeanor and motor vehicle cases from the towns of Hampton, Hampton Falls, North Hampton, South Hampton, and the New Hampsire State Police and other state agencies.

The new Hampton courthouse is less than 4.5 miles from Samdperil & Welsh, PLLC. Our attorneys frequently represent clients in that court in a range of matters, including DUI’s, drug offenses, and theft-related charges. Please feel free to contact us if we can assist you with your case.
