Monroe Mayor’s Court

By Marty Hubbell

Some Ohio municipalities have created Mayor’s Courts, as authorized by the Ohio Revised Code.  These Courts hear traffic cases, OVI (or DUI), DUS, and other misdemeanors.

The Monroe Police Department or Sheriff’s department can cite first time offenders into the Monroe, Ohio Mayor’s Court.  Mayor’s Courts are not courts of record, and a Defendant has the automatic right to appeal the case, regardless of the result.  If a Defendant is not pleased with how the case was resolved in Monroe Mayor’s Court, the case can start over in the Butler County Area Court system or the Warren County Court, depending upon where the offense is alleged to have occurred.  It is like getting two bites at the apple, which can be a great advantage to the defense.

When charged with an offense in Monroe Mayor’s Court, it is especially important to retain a local attorney who has experience working in these types of Courts.  Because these Courts are not official, the procedures and formalities can vary greatly, especially compared to County or Municipal Courts.

Monroe Mayor’s Court is located at the City of Monroe Urban Center, 233 South Main Street, Monroe, Ohio  45050.  Court is in session on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, beginning at 3:00 p.m.

Online and Social Media Marketing For Lawyers

By: Gabe Moorman

As a newly minted Ohio Attorney, I am beginning to understand the importance of legal marketing.  Most attorneys in Ohio would agree that an online presence is crucial in developing name recognition and bringing in new clients for your firm.  Law firm websites, Facebook groups, Twitter accounts, LinkedIn groups, and legal blogs are a great way to reach the public.

The use of social media for law firm advertising has increased substantially over the last year or two. And, rightly so, as the use of social media by prospective clients has skyrocketed.  Along with opening up the phone book, clients in need of legal assistance are logging in to search engines such as Google, Yahoo, or Bing.  They are also likely to see the ads on Facebook and the up-to-date thoughts on Twitter and legal blogs.   This provides lawyers with an opportunity to reach an even greater number of clients.  

However, while marketing and networking with other lawyers and prospective clients are important in developing a successful law practice, nothing attracts (and keeps) clients like providing excellent legal services. 

For those attorneys who are hesitant to log on and sign in, you may want to consider the positive impact of developing an online presence.
