Gilbertsville District Courty 38-2-03

Receiving a summons or notice to appear in district court may be frightening, but you do not have to go through the process alone. By working with an experienced attorney who has dealt with hundreds of cases like yours in Pennsylvania district courts, you will be able to develop a strong defense to convince your district judge (also called a magisterial judge) to reduce your sentence or penalties, or even to dismiss the charges against you entirely.

Each county, including Montgomery County, has many district courts that serve different voting districts throughout the county. Each court is presided over by one elected district judge. These districts court are the first to hear cases that involve traffic offenses or violations, summary criminal offenses, municipal code violations, landlord tenant disputes, and small claims (of less than $12,000).

These offenses may seem relatively minor, and in fact they are sometimes referred to as minor offenses. However, a conviction in district court for one of these offenses can come with surprisingly steep penalties that can present quite a heavy burden on you and your loved ones. If you do not want to receive a penalty of hundreds of dollars in fines, or a sentence of several weeks in prison, reach out to one of our experienced lawyers as soon as possible.
