Judge's Welcome

Welcome to Edmonds Municipal Court

Judge Whitney M. Rivera


As the Edmonds Municipal Court Judge, I would like to welcome you to our webpage and take this opportunity to give you a brief overview of the Court.

Edmonds Municipal Court is a court of limited jurisdiction. We handle misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor criminal cases that occur within the City of Edmonds. Typical types of cases include DUI, assault in the fourth degree, driving with a suspended license, theft in the third degree and minor drug possession cases. We also process civil traffic and parking infractions along with animal control and nuisance violations.

Court hearings are held in a multi-purpose room. The courtroom also serves as the City Council Chambers and is used for award ceremonies, training, various committee meetings and public hearings.

If you have received an infraction, you can request a written contested or mitigation hearing and avoid the necessity of a court appearance. If you want to submit a written request for an infraction hearing then simply return to the main court page and select a form from the infractions category.

We endeavor to provide you with prompt, professional and courteous service. I work hard to ensure your civil rights are preserved and respected, and that criminals are held accountable for their actions. Justice, fairness, and integrity comprise the backbone of our legal system.

If you wish to learn more about me, my current biography is available for you to read. I can also be reached at whitney.rivera@edmondswa.gov. Please do not contact me regarding a pending case. It is improper for me to have contact with only one party in a legal proceeding.  All of my decisions must be based on information that is provided to all parties on the record in open court.
