Among the four state courthouses in the county, the Broward County South Regional Courthouse located in Hollywood, Florida stands out. Constructed in 1977 in the architectural style reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright, the building serves as a home to various art pieces and plays a significant role as a featured stop on the Public Art and Design Tour.

Traffic and Misdemeanor Services
The majority of civil traffic infraction hearings are presided over by a Hearing Officer. Individuals who receive a traffic citation have three choices within 30 days: they can pay the specified traffic fine as indicated on the citation, attend a driver improvement course, or file a request for a hearing to challenge the citation.
County Civil Services
The County Civil Division oversees a range of cases, including Landlord Tenant disputes, Small Claims cases (involving amounts up to $8,000), and various other civil matters such as Auto Negligence, Condominium issues, and Personal Injury Protection cases (involving amounts from $8,001 up to $50,000).
Conversely, the County Court Criminal Division is responsible for addressing criminal misdemeanor cases, criminal traffic offenses, violations of municipal and county ordinances, and civil traffic infractions. Criminal misdemeanor cases encompass violations of the law like petit theft, simple battery, and other criminal offenses. Criminal traffic matters include motor vehicle violations such as driving with a suspended license, driving under the influence, and operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license.
