  • thank you judge Celeste Brown for being so kind understanding and friendly
  • It was a fun time. We all sat and had a good laugh. Everyone was really feeling really at ease. This is a really good travel agency for vacations. They are efficient. And they only need like one charge and you are good to go on your vacation. I wasn't too bad. Would suggest. Will be back.
  • As a tourist, this building along with it's fountain is eye catching from right across the Historical Main Plaza. It stands to be the Bexar Courthouse of the fourth largest County in Texas and the 19th largest County nationally. The building was built right before the 20th century and designed in a Romanesque Revival Style.
  • The Bexar County Courthouse was built in 1897. The historic courthouse is built out of red sand stone and granite, from Texas. There is also the renovated Double Hyatt Courtroom. There is also a WWII exhibit on display. It's free and open to public, Monday through Friday, 7:00am to 6:00pm. The exhibit will leave November 11, and head towards Brady Green Hosiptal, then onto Europe in 2017.
  • This court system if your having a custody battle is geared towards the mom waste of damn time screw the bexar county court systems.....
