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, Extreme DUI, Super Extreme DUI, Underage DUI), Assault, Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Damage, Domestic Violence and other criminal misdemeanor charges as well as traffic violations, Orders of Protection and Injunctions Against Harassment.

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.
