What Happens At The First Municipal Court Hearing?

What happens at the first hearing in East Mesa Justice Court; Initial Appearances (IA):

Unless you hire an attorney, you must appear at the East Mesa Justice Court Initial Appearance.  If you do not show, a warrant or order to show cause may be issued by the presiding judge.  During the Initial Appearance, a judge will advise the defendants of their charges and will address release conditions.  It is at this point that you will plead guilty or not guilty.  If you plead not guilty, then you will be given a new court date about a month in the future, called a pretrial conference.

How AZ Defense Lawyers Help Your Initial Appearance (IA)

How Lawyers at Dove Law Firm Can Help You At Your East Mesa Justice Court Initial Appearance (IA)

If you hire a Dove Law Firm attorney, we can file motions for you to be released on your own recognizance, vacate or delete the initial appearance, enter a not guilty plea and set for a pretrial hearing.  Once this motion is granted by the court, you will no longer need to show to the initial appearance court date listed on your summons.  East Mesa Justice Court lawyers will attend subsequent hearings, enabling you to avoid missing work or family activities.  We will present all evidence to the Prosecutor and engage in negotiations.  We will gather the discovery and keep you informed on all aspects of the case.
