The United States Constitution and the Arizona State Constitution guarantee the right to trial by jury. All Maricopa County residents are obligated by state law to serve as a juror, unless excused. Being on a jury is a rewarding experience, and your participation is appreciated. Thank you for serving your community.

This site has been designed to help you answer any questions you may have regarding your jury service.

Responding to your Summons

You've just received a jury service postcard in the mail. What's next? You need to inform the Jury Office of your intention to serve as a juror. 

Respond to Your Summons


When you respond to your summons you may also postpone your service to a later time, or request to be excused from jury service if you are unable to serve.

Selected to Serve

If you are chosen to serve on a Jury, you will be escorted from the jury assembly room to a courtroom by court staff. Once seated in the courtroom, you will be asked to take an oath to truthfully answer all questions regarding your qualifications to serve as a juror.
