CLARK COUNTY, HENDERSON MUNICIPAL COURT
IMPORTANT NOTE: EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1ST, 2023- with recent changes to laws that impact traffic related cases, some courts are changing their procedures, and likewise we may have courts that we no longer represent for, or court procedures that impact what our fees are for representation.

It is important to always check the deadline for appearance, which is typically shown on the bottom of citations. Failure to appear on or resolve before that date can result in a warrant. Some of the more common tickets we see for the Henderson Municipal Court are violations like Speeding, Failure to Yield, Failing to Observe Traffic Control Device and Improper Lane Overtake. These types of violations can often be negotiated with the Henderson Municipal Court via the City Attorney’s office. Some Courts and/or City Attorney’s may have policies in place that disallow such a negotiation, while others may actively welcome it.

Each incorporated city in Nevada has a municipal court. Like the justice courts, the municipal courts have limited jurisdiction; in general, they hear cases involving civil and misdemeanor violations of city ordinances, nuisance abatement cases, and cases involving $2,500 or less where the city is the plaintiff. The municipal court is presided over by a municipal judge (or, as provided by some city charters, multiple judges). Judges may be either elected by the city’s voters, or appointed by the mayor with consent of the city council, as determined by city ordinance. The term of elected judges is set by the city charter or ordinances. In some cities, instead of electing or appointing a judge, the applicable justice of the peace serves ex officio as the municipal judge.
