Media District Court 32-1-28

If you have received a summons to appear in district court in Delaware County, do not panic -- give our offices a call and talk to one of our experienced attorneys, who can guide you through the process and help you prepare for your court date.

District court hearings are common throughout Pennsylvania, because there are several district courts in each county. Your local district court serves a particular group of townships, boroughs, or wards within those particular areas. You can call the Administrative Office for Magisterial District Judges at 610-565-6990 if you do not know which district court you need to attend.

These courts handle only certain kinds of cases -- all other kinds of cases are handled in a different Pennsylvania court system. District courts in Pennsylvania (which are also sometimes referred to as magisterial courts) include: summary criminal offenses, traffic offenses, municipal code violations, landlord tenant disputes, and small civil claims. If you have been arrested or have gotten a citation for any of those kinds of offenses, be sure to contact an attorney as soon as you receive your notice or summons to appear in district court.
