Montgomeryville District Court 38-1-18

Have you received a citation for a traffic violation or for a summary offense, or have you been arrested for a minor criminal offense? If so, the next step is usually to appear in your local Pennsylvania district court for a proceeding, such as a hearing, an arraignment, or a non-jury trial. These proceedings will determine whether or not you will be convicted, and what sentence or penalty will be imposed based on your conviction.

In Pennsylvania, district courts are the first courts to hear summary criminal offenses, traffic offenses, municipal code violations, small claims under $12,000, and landlord tenant disputes. This means that these courts remain very busy, which is why each county, including Montgomery County, has several district courts that serve different groups of voting districts. Be sure to determine the correct district court that you need to report to, based on the information provided to you.

Any proceedings in district court should be taken seriously. Because they can determine your penalty or sentence, it is in your best interest to develop and present a solid defense that can help reduce your sentence or penalty, or even have your charges dropped altogether. Contact our offices today to get in touch with an experienced district court attorney.
