We hired Brandon for my nephew who was facing several felony charges. Brandon always kept us up to date with what was going on. What he was doing, and what we needed to do. He knew the problems the prosecutors were facing with the case, and let us know. He was always completely honest with us. He also tolerated me texting him with all of my questions, and made sure that I understood what was going on. He wasn’t going to let my nephew get “railroaded” by the prosecutors for a couple bad decisions. He had his best interest at heart. I would definitely use Brandon again, and would recommend him to anyone.

Frequently asked questions ABOUT MAYOR'S COURT

Why am I in Worthington Mayor's Court?

All municipalities with at least 200 citizens have the option to establish a Mayor's Court, and where your case ends up is at the discretion of the citing officer. Mayor's Courts concern some legal watchdogs as there is incentive to impose higher fines and penalties to bolster the community's coffers.  Defendants benefit from their cases beginning in Mayor's Court as it is possible to "pick your venue".  Your attorney can always transfer your case out of the Mayor's Court if it is a better option.  Make sure you have an experienced criminal defense attorney who knows where your case should be.    

How is Worthington Mayor's Court different from a Municipal Court?

Jury trials are not possible in Mayor's Courts - you do not have the right to request your trial be heard by a panel of Jurors. Additionally, they are not "courts of record," meaning the proceedings of court are not recorded by a court stenographer or a video/audio recording system. Finally, Mayors do not have to have any legal education or training to preside over their respective court, whereas all county Judges are required to have a law degree.
