Juror FAQs

Jury Office staff evaluate answers to the Juror Qualification Forms to determine who is eligible for jury service.

All Montgomery County residents who are over 18 and are United States citizens are eligible to serve as a juror. A Montgomery County juror must be at least 18 years of age, a citizen of the United States, a resident of Montgomery County, and be able to communicate in English.

Any citizen selected for a jury trial serves for the duration of one trial, regardless of how long that trial may be. Montgomery County participates in the "one day, one trial" process. If you are not assigned to a trial by the end of the day, your service is complete. The judge reserves the right to keep a panel of jurors longer than one day if the jury selection process has not finished.

The average length of our trials is 2-3 days. However, some trials may be longer. You will be told the length of the trial upon arrival in the courtroom.

Persons with disabilities may request reasonable accommodations. Accommodation requests must be made by telephone (240-777-9090) or submitted in writing to the Jury Office (50 Maryland Avenue, North Tower, Rm 2100, Rockville, MD 20850).

Jury staff can provide accommodations such as interpreters for the deaf and CART (Computer Assisted Real-Time Transcription) services for those who do not use American Sign Language (ASL).

We advise the following for jurors using canes, crutches, or wheelchairs: the most easily accessed entrance from the Juror Parking Lot and the Overflow COB Garage is the optional Juror entrance located on the side of the Circuit Court, facing Route 28/East Jefferson Street. Using the Monroe Street entrance from the Juror lots is not advised due to the increasing slope of Monroe Street to the courthouse.

We also advise using the restrooms located just outside the Jury Lounge. In addition to being handicapped-accessible, the outside and inside walls are equipped with automatic door buttons.

For jurors with private medical concerns, the Court does have two Wellness Rooms (South Tower, Rms 1441 & 1442) that are available with door locks, chairs, and sinks. The Jury Office also has a large refrigerator in which to store items that need to be kept cold.

Finally, jurors with leg or back issues are welcome to bring pillows and/or foot stools for their comfort.

Yes. As a trial juror, you will be paid a stipend of $15 for each day of service. If you are on a trial that lasts more than five consecutive days, your stipend will increase to $50 for each day served starting the 6th day.
