Welcome to Courthouses of Florida

Thank you for visiting this photographic archive of images by David H. Fauss, provided by Magnus Graphics, Inc. The collection of images contained on this website are the result of thousands of photographs taken by David since the early 1990s. David worked as a professional photographer for a number of years before founding Magnus Research Consultants, Inc. and Magnus Graphics, Inc. with Dr. Melissa Pigott. The Magnus companies provide jury and trial consulting services, as well as trial presentation and graphic services.

Often, the courthouse occupies a central place in a city or county and becomes a prominent part of the life and history of the community. Some of the older courthouses are among the oldest buildings in the state. Recording these images and researching the history of the courthouses was done to share our rich history with those who may appreciate it most, the litigators and trial attorneys whose daily work is conducted in and around these buildings. We have often discussed favorite courthouses with our clients who relate stories of trials, hearings, and other experiences they have had throughout the state. We hope you will enjoy this image collection.

Note to viewers: if you know of a courthouse not included in this website, or which has been renovated, please let us know.
