Video review of the Ironwood Justice Court and Judge Joe Getzwiller:
If you have been cited for driving under the influence or a misdemeanor crime, you may have been told to go to Ironwood Justice Court. This means you were cited by the Arizona Department of Public Safety or the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. If you were cited by city police officers, you would have to go to the city court.
The jurisdictional area of Ironwood Justice Court is not perfectly square, so it is important to know which areas are included. The court is located at 209 E. Pima Street in Gila Bend, Arizona. The court’s jurisdiction is bounded by Bell Road to the north, I-8 to the south, 83rd Avenue to the east, and 579th Avenue to the west. If you were cited outside this jurisdiction, that is a potential defense for your case. It may be possible to get the case thrown out of court.
When you arrive at Ironwood Justice Court, there is free parking in the front. Be sure to dress appropriately for court. Avoid wearing sunglasses, shorts, a hat, a tank top, or other unprofessional clothing. The judge for this court is Joe Getzwiller, who tends to be very prompt with his court schedule. It is important to remember most justices of the peace did not go to law school, so they are not lawyers. They are typically elected by popular vote and then receive six weeks of training before they are allowed to decide cases. This means you need to have an experienced attorney with you when you go to Ironwood Justice Court.
If you are charged with a DUI or misdemeanor crime, schedule a free consultation with an attorney.
