The City of Hillsboro Municipal Court is the judicial branch of the City government and provides a local forum for the resolution of minor traffic infractions, parking citations, and violations of City ordinances. The majority of the cases heard in the Municipal Court are traffic infractions.

Important: You CANNOT file paperwork or make pleas by emailing to the webmaster or the Municipal Court. Emails DO NOT constitute an appearance OR a written explanation by a defendant. You must contact the court in writing through standard mail or you must appear in court. If you elect to plead guilty or no contest by mail you must submit the full base fine amount for each violation on your citation.

The Municipal Court clerks can answer questions about the court schedule, fine amounts, and other administrative matters, but cannot give legal advice. If you need legal advice, you should consult an attorney. For help in finding an attorney, call the Oregon State Bar's Lawyer Referral Service at 503-620-0222 or 1-800-452-8260.
