How It Works
Matterhorn courts empower the public to participate in the legal process on their own schedule. Using Matterhorn, the person requests a review of their citation online, submits a statement, and uploads a photo or other documents if needed.
Law enforcement can review the person's statement without waiting in court.
Judges and magistrates can adjudicate their cases without the docket time and hassle.
Court staff who bring Matterhorn into their courts increase access to justice and improve the workflow for all parties, including slimming their own task list.
