After having tried cases in the Delaware Municipal Court since 2000, Funkhouser Law has extensive experience here and a great track record for getting the most favorable outcome for each one of its clients.
The Delaware Municipal Court is the trial level court for Delaware County, Ohio, hearing criminal Misdemeanor and traffic cases as well as small claim disputes. Here, a defendant can be tried in front of a jury of his or her peers of 8 persons and the penalties can be severe, so it is crucial to have a strong litigation attorney on your side.
Being a county court, all of the judges are elected officials. Staying familiar with the judges, prosecutors, and court rules, the municipal court and small claims lawyers at Funkhouser Law will personally guide clients through every step of the process, keeping them well-informed.
Before a trial begins, a defendant will receive a letter in the mail to show up to an arraignment. At the arraignment, the judge will simply read the charges brought against the defendant, to which the defendant pleads either guilty or not guilty. Defendants should be present at the arraignment along with their attorney.
