Welcome to the Phoenix Municipal Court Web site. As Chief Presiding Judge I would like to thank you for visiting our Web site and encourage you to learn more about the entire judicial system. The Court is a separate branch of city government and a part of the statewide court system, subject to the authority of the Supreme Court.

The Phoenix Municipal Court is the State’s largest limited jurisdiction court and is among the top ten busiest municipal courts in the United States. The Court handles cases that range from minor traffic violations to Class 1 misdemeanors carrying a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $2,500 fine. Annually, the court processes approximately 300,000 charges including approximately 100,000 criminal charges.

The Phoenix Municipal Court is a recognized judicial leader throughout the State of Arizona and the United States for its innovative and progressive work in the areas of technology, customer service, case management, fiscal responsibility, and judicial and staff accountability. We are committed to improving the operations of the court to fulfill our mission.
