Odyssey Guide and File

The new Guide and File application is now available in our Court.  This application is designed to guide pro se filers when filing petitions by e-file.

Although e-Filing is not currently mandated for Justice Courts in Texas, the process is currently available.  We would like to give you the opportunity to explore the benefits of filing through Guide and File.  No longer will you need to complete the petition by hand, the Guide and File completes it for you.  You can e-file in our office, at your home or anywhere you have access to the internet. 

We look forward to working with you to simplify and improve the filing experience with Williamson County JP1.

Justice of the Peace Dain Johnson, Precinct One

Dain Johnson is the Justice of the Peace for Precinct One, Williamson County, Texas. He was born on September 11, 1972, in Austin, Texas, to Travis and Gundy Johnson.

He is a life-long resident of precinct one, an Eagle Scout, a member of Palm Valley Lutheran Church, and a graduate of Concordia Lutheran College. Judge Johnson is the second generation of Johnson's to hold elected office in Williamson County; both grandparents were JPs. His grandfather held the position from 1967 until his death in 1972, and then his grandmother took over from 1972 until her retirement in 1982.

Having attended public school in Round Rock, Judge Johnson graduated from Round Rock High School in 1990. He received his Bachelor of Business Administration from Concordia Lutheran College, in 1994, and completed a secondary major in English in 1995.

During the last year of college, Judge Johnson worked for Williamson County Juvenile Services dealing with young men and women who were incarcerated and pending action in the Juvenile Court. In 1995, he was hired full-time and was transferred to the Court Intake Section dealing with the adjudicated youth in the Juvenile Court System. From 1994 until 2003, his primary responsibility was to recommend to the Juvenile Court what action would be both in the best interest of the public and the child.

The Justice Court has jurisdiction over all “class C” misdemeanors – fineable offenses only, truancy cases, civil law suits up to $10,000, evictions, acting coroner for all unattended deaths, and witness to wedding contracts.
