As a criminal defense attorney, I frequently represent citizens charged with criminal offenses in the Rocky River Municipal Court. The Rocky River Municipal Court in Rocky River, Ohio serves the communities of Bay Village, Fairview Park, North Olmsted, Rocky River, Westlake, and the Metroparks. As such, if a person is charged with a misdemeanor criminal offense within one of these communities, their case will likely be heard in the Rocky River Municipal Court.

The Court is located at 21012 Hilliard, Boulevard, Rocky River, Ohio. In 2009, over 23,000 criminal cases were filed with the court. The severity of the criminal cases range from Felony level charges that initiate within the jurisdiction, to misdemeanor traffic tickets. The number of criminal and traffic filings from the various jurisdictions range widely. For instance, North Olmsted filed over 8,600 criminal and traffic cases, while Bay Village filed less than 700.
