Municipal Court Department
Welcome to the Boston Municipal Court Department homepage. We hope you will find our web pages helpful and easy to use.
The Boston Municipal Court Department consists of eight community courts located in downtown Boston, Brighton, Charlestown, Dorchester, East Boston, Roxbury, South Boston and West Roxbury.
Our courts conduct bench and jury trials in a wide variety of civil and criminal cases. We also hear abuse and harassment prevention petitions, and civil motor vehicle citations. In addition, we operate specialized court sessions dedicated to addressing drug addiction, homelessness, gun violence and mental health issues affecting many individuals appearing in our courts.
Every day we serve as a beacon of justice for those who live in the diverse communities of Greater Boston as well as for the millions of individuals entering Boston from throughout the Commonwealth and around the world. No matter your purpose for being in Boston, we dedicate ourselves to a dignified, just, and speedy resolution of your dispute.
