Maryland Judiciary

The Maryland Judiciary includes the District and Circuit Courts in each county in Maryland, as well as Baltimore City; the Court of Special Appeals, which serves as Maryland’s intermediate appellate court; and the Court of Appeals, which is the state’s highest court. Both the Administrative Office of the Courts and District Court Headquarters, located in Annapolis, provide administrative services to the Maryland Judiciary, including personnel administration, preparation and administration of the Judiciary’s budget, planning and research functions, and information technology services. Through this network of trial and appellate courts, the Maryland Judiciary serves the citizens of Maryland by handling judicial proceedings for both minor and serious criminal offenses, civil claims, family law cases, landlord-tenant disputes, and a variety of other legal actions.
