APPEAL AND WRIT OF REVIEW

The Bend Municipal Court is prohibited from giving legal advice. If you have legal questions, you should contact an attorney. You can locate an attorney through the Lawyer Referral Service of the Oregon State Bar Association by calling (800) 452-7636 or (503)684-3763.

To file a Notice of Appeal or Writ of Review regarding a judgment from the Bend Municipal Court, you will need to either or seek legal advice or, if you are choosing to act as your own attorney, research the Bend City Code (BCC) and/or the Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS).  The Bend Municipal Court is not a court of record, therefore your appeal will be filed with the Deschutes County Circuit Court which charges a fee for filing an appeal.  Click here for the Circuit Court Fees page.
