Municipal Court does not provide attorneys for defendants, neither adults nor juveniles. If you need legal advice, please contact the attorney of your choice.
Defense Attorney of Record
If you want to represent a defendant in the Austin Municipal Court, you must submit a letter of representation that includes your email address, the defendant’s name and date of birth, the case or ticket numbers, the plea of not guilty or request for other options.
Once you are an attorney of record on a case, you will be notified by email regarding court dates and you may obtain access to the case on the court’s Defense Attorney website. If you have not registered before with the court, you may get access by calling (512) 974-4692 or coming to our downtown courthouse location. Access will allow you to see the status and documents of the case as well as your upcoming court dates.
Please do not submit a letter of representation until the case is filed in our court. You may check filing status online.
