Lansdale District Court 38-1-28

A hearing in a Pennsylvania district court will require you to present a solid and well prepared defense in order to ensure that you do not have to face the harsh penalties that often accompany the kinds of offenses handled in district court. To do so, you should reach out to one of our experienced attorneys right away so that you may begin preparing for your hearing.

Pennsylvania district, or magisterial, courts are located throughout the state, often with several different district courts in each county. The district courts are each designed to serve particular parts of townships and boroughs, based on voting districts. Do not worry if you are not sure which district court serves your area -- you may look it up online at https://www.montcopa.org/index.aspx?NID=1413.

District courts handle specific kinds of cases and offenses. One of the most common kinds of cases are traffic violations, which can include driving with a suspended license, failure to yield, running stop signs or red lights, and speeding. The other most common kind of cases involves summary criminal offenses, which in Pennsylvania include DUIs and DWIs, drinking underage, loitering, harassment, shoplifting, or disorderly conduct.

If you have been arrested for any of these kinds of offenses, or if you have been issued a citation, you will also be assigned a court date in district court that you must report to. As soon as you have this information, give our offices a call so that we may begin helping you prepare before your court date.

 

Lansdale District Court

In Lansdale, Pennsylvania, the district court is District Court 38-1-28. This district court is located at 421 West Main Street in Lansdale. The phone number for the court is 215-393-7534, and the fax number for the court is 215-393-7536.

District Court 38-1-28 is presided over by the Honorable Judge Harold D. Borek. In Judge Borek’s court, you are likely facing an arraignment proceeding, a preliminary criminal hearing or a traffic hearing, or even a non-jury trial handled by Judge Borek. But no matter what proceeding you are facing, or what charges you are facing, it is of the utmost importance that you take your hearing seriously and prepare for it with the help of an experienced district court attorney.

Even these seemingly “minor” offenses can come with some pretty heavy penalties or sentences, if you are convicted in district court. A summary criminal offense conviction can come with a price as high as 90 days in prison (or even 180 days, if this is not your first offense), as well as a $300 fine. If you and your family are facing this burden, you do not have to handle it alone. Your attorney will zealously represent you in court and help you prepare so that you feel calm, confident, and prepared.
