Arizona Courts of Limited Jurisdiction – Justice Courts, City Courts, Municipal Courts

Courts of limited jurisdiction include city courts and justice courts. These courts are called limited jurisdiction because they only handle certain case types. For example, they will not hear civil disputes involving sums over $10,000.00, and they do not handle felony cases.
Limited jurisdiction courts are the ones that handle civil and misdemeanor traffic violations in Arizona. Whether a defendant ends up in city court or a justice court depends on which law enforcement agency issues the ticket. If the city police issue the ticket, it will go to a city court. If the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Sheriff, or tribal police issue a ticket, it will go to a justice court.
Below is a list of all the justice courts in Arizona as well as some of the city courts. We haven’t appeared in all of these yet, but we’ve been in over 160 courts in Arizona, so odds are very good we have experience with the court handling your ticket.
