Mesa Municipal Court Criminal Cases
If you were cited and/or arrested on a misdemeanor criminal violation by
the Mesa Police Department, you will likely be appearing in the Mesa Municipal
Court. The Mesa Municipal Court has jurisdiction over misdemeanor offenses such as
DUI (1st Time DUI,
Super Extreme DUI, Underage DUI),
Domestic Violence and other criminal misdemeanor charges as well as traffic violations,
Orders of Protection and Injunctions Against Harassment. Mr. Buckallew has handled countless
cases in the Mesa Municipal Court, is very familiar with the Judges and
Prosecutors over there and has experience in handling all types of criminal
and DUI cases in this Courthouse. The Courthouse is nearby our Mesa office
and is located one block south of Main Street and one block west of Mesa Drive at:
Mesa Municipal Court
250 East 1st Avenue
Mesa, AZ 85210
The Court operates on a 4-day schedule and the hours of operation are Monday-Thursday
7:00 AM – 6:00 PM (excluding holidays).
Dress Code / Courtroom Etiquette
While your attorney will facilitate the court proceedings and give you
instructions regarding your role during these various proceedings, it
is always helpful to understand basic courtroom etiquette, including being
on time, being polite to all court personnel, opposing counsel and the
Judge, turning off electronic devices/phones and dressing appropriately.
You want to make a good impression and impress upon the Court and Prosecutor
that you are taking your case very seriously, and as such, your appearance
and what you wear is important. Clothing should be free of offensive/controversial
slogans, and no hats, cut-off shorts or flip-flops should be worn. Your
appearance should not distract from your case or your defense and recommended
attire would be ‘business casual’ such as a tucked in collared
shirt and slacks for men and a blouse or sweater and slacks for women.
