Frequently Asked Questions

Clay County Circuit Court

For most personal injury claims, the journey begins at the Clay County Circuit Courts. Part of the 7th Judicial Circuit Court of Missouri, the circuit court is located in Liberty, Missouri, at 11 South Water Street. People from all over the county head to the Clay County Courthouse in Liberty for dispute intervention, justice to victims, or settlements for family matters. Because the Popham Law Firm works extensively in this courthouse, we boast a home field advantage that allows us to navigate personal injury law swiftly and effectively.

The Clay County Courthouse is open weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.  You can find public parking between South Leonard Street and Missouri Street, but keep in mind that parking on some streets is for an hour only and strictly enforced by the city.

What if my case goes to the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals?

For those needing to appeal a decision, appellate cases are held at the Missouri Court of Appeals, and for Clay County citizens, the appellate court is part of the Western District.

The Court of Appeals is located at the Court of Appeals Courthouse on 1300 Oak Street in Kansas City.

Very few personal injury cases make it to the Supreme Court, but it does happen. As such, the Missouri Supreme Court hears and decides on some of the most important legal issues affecting Clay County citizens. The Supreme Court is located at 207 West High Street in Jefferson City, Missouri. You can reach the court by dialing (573) 751-4144.
