General Information
Description of ServicePennsylvania consists of 67 counties and every county except for Philadelphia County has Magisterial District Courts. These courts are lower courts of limited jurisdiction and there may be numerous Magisterial District Courts in each county, usually one per zip code and can include several municipalities. They handle matters such as landlord-tenant disputes, small claims, summary offenses, and violations of municipal ordinances and some Magisterial District Courts also handle traffic violations.

For Magisterial District Court locations, addresses, phone numbers, and judges visit Magisterial District Judges to find the appropriate court. If filing, call the court to determine if it is the proper court for filing.

Philadelphia County does not have a Magisterial District Court system. Instead use Philadelphia County Municipal Court or Philadelphia County Traffic Court. These courts hear similar matters to the Magisterial District Courts.
