Small claims court is part of the District Court of Maryland. Small claims are handled less formally than cases in other Maryland courts. While you can hire a lawyer if you choose, the rules of evidence and procedure are simplified to make it easier to represent yourself. This video lays out the steps involved in filing a small claim ($5000 or less) and offers an overview of alternative ways to settle your dispute out of court.
