Dorchester is part of Boston, in Suffolk County. The Superior Court for Suffolk County is at Three Pemberton Square, which is across the street from our office at Six Beacon Street; the view from Attorney Burns and Jain’s’ office is of the old Suffolk Superior Court Courthouse, called the John Adams Courthouse, and also the current Suffolk Superior Court Courthouse. All personal injury cases from Dorchester that have a value over $25,000 are heard in that courthouse.Cases with a lower jurisdiction, below $25,000, are heard at the Dorchester District Court, located at 510 Washington Street, in Dorchester. However, Suffolk County has a second District Court where Dorchester cases can be heard: the Boston Municipal Court, located at 24 New Chardon Street, in the Edward W. Brooke Courthouse.
Dorchester residents may also file civil small claims cases in either the Dorchester District Court or the Boston Municipal Court. These cases must have a value of $7,500 or less; or, if the case is derived from a motor vehicle accident and has only property damage, the property damage claim can be brought in Small Claims Court. Burns & Jain is located across the street from the Suffolk Superior Court, at Six Beacon Street, in downtown Boston, Massachusetts 02108.
