  SINCE 1980   


   The dickinson lawyer serves clients in Dickinson Texas and all areas and cities within Galveston county, Texas, and has his office located at 2206 Palmer Hwy, Texas City, Tx. 77590. The dickinson lawyer shares the following information. The City of  Dickinson  has the Dickinson Municipal Court located in Dickinson city limits, which handles class C misdemeanors, violations of city ordinances.

Traffic tickets are class C misdemeanors, along with other minor crimes. 

Class B and Class A misdemeanors are handled by the County Courts at Law, located in Galveston, Texas.  Besides, handling Class B and A misdemeanors, the County Court Courts at Law handle cases in which the amount in controversy is between $500.00 and $200,000.00.   The County  Courts 1, 2 and 3 also take appeals from justice of peace and municipal courts located in Galveston County.  A new trial is given on these appeals.  It is called a trial de novo.

The district court has exclusive jurisdiction on felony cases, cases involving title to land, and election contest cases.  It shares jurisdiction with the county courts, and in some case justice of the peace courts, for civil cases (its lowest limit for hearing a case is a mere $200 in controversy, while JP courts can hear cases up to $10,000). In a "catchall" provision it hears all cases "in which jurisdiction is not placed in another trial court."

The 306th District Family Court of Galveston County handles only family related cases.  It shares jurisdiction with county courts at law 1, 2 and 3 on family cases. 

In addition to judicial powers, district judges also have administrative duties as well. District judges may remove county officials, officials of a general-law municipality, and municipal court judges, under certain circumstances. Also, they appoint and supervise the county auditor, oversee the operations of the adult and juvenile probation offices, and are granted "supervisory" jurisdiction over the county commissioners court.
