If you received a criminal misdemeanor ticket or a DUI and were told to go to the Encanto Justice Court, this means you have either been arrested by the Department of Public Safety or the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.
In this short video, David gives you details about the Encanto Justice Court and the Judge:
The jurisdictional boundaries of this court are Northern Avenue to the North, Woodland Avenue to the South, Squaw Peak to the East, and 27th Avenue to the West. Those are approximations, and the actual lines of jurisdiction for that court are somewhat oddly shaped. Based on that odd shape, it is important to check in with DM Cantor. If you have been cited outside of that jurisdiction but told to go to the Encanto Justice Court, you can defend yourself using this. Sometimes the whole case can be thrown out as a result.
Encanto Justice Court is located at 620 W Jackson Phoenix, AZ 85003. The particular building that it is in holds about 4 or 5 justice courts, but specifically the Encanto Justice Court is included. There is parking in a tall parking garage or there are also parking meters. Plenty of parking.
Make sure to dress appropriately for the situation. Look professional by leaving the hats, tank tops, sunglasses, etc. at home. The Judge at this court is Judge: Steven McMurry. This Judge has received a Disciplinary Action from the Commission on Judicial Conduct in 2010. We have provided a link that will take you to the Commission’s website.

Most of the Justices of the Peace are non lawyers and they did not go to law school. They were elected to their positions, and this means that they sometimes get the cases wrong. They have simply not had more than 6 weeks of training. Because of this, if you are supposed to go to the Encanto Justice Court call DM Cantor for a free consultation of about 30 minutes. They will go over your case with you completely and hopefully find a way out of this for you. Our offices are available 24 hours a day at (602) 307-0808 or by using our secure email form.
