If you are in the city of Madison, and are charged with traffic or misdemeanor offenses, the Madison Municipal Court has jurisdiction. Madison Municipal Court also holds hearings regarding city ordinances.
Madison, The City, lies just north of Ridgeland encompassing over 13.5 square land miles bordering on the Natchez Trace Parkway.

If you have any questions about your court date or other procedural matters, you can call the Court Clerk. The clerk is not allowed to give legal advice or answer questions about your criminal charge and they may not tell you what happens if you plead guilty to the criminal offense that you are charged with. Only licensed attorneys who handle matters like these on a daily basis can answer these questions. The attorneys at Coxwell & Associates are available to assist you with any advice that you need.
