Where to Go to Court After Being Arrest in Quincy

The Massachusetts court system is far from intuitive. The vast majority of criminal trials are held at 62 district courts located throughout the state. The Quincy District court hears cases arising out of arrests in the following cities: Braintree, Cohasset, Holbrook, Milton, Quincy, Randolph, and Weymouth.

If you have a court date coming up, it is best to have an attorney represent you at the hearing.
