There are several courthouses in Queens: Jamaica, Kew Gardens and Long Island City. Most handle Criminal and civil cases. Jamaica houses Queens Family Court. The Kew Gardens courthouse also holds Queens County Supreme Court. But the Criminal Court of the City of New York is probably the most interesting game in town.
