Essex County Courts are judicial bodies that resolves legal disputes at the federal, Massachusetts State, or local Essex County level. Courts typically specialize in a particular area of law, such as criminal, civil, family, and traffic courts. Courts also create records about their cases, which provide information about the defendant and plaintiffs in a trial, the charges brought against an individual, the outcome of a trial, and any sentences, court decrees, or probation orders. Any type of judicial action creates a paper trail, and many courts provide online access to their case records. This includes records on criminal misdemeanors and felonies, divorces, lawsuits against businesses, civil rights violations, complaints about sexual harassment or discrimination, and more. Court databases often allow the public to search cases by the names of the people involved.

Essex County District Attorney Offices prosecute legal cases on behalf of the public, including both criminal and civil cases. The office maintains records on prior and ongoing cases, such as prosecutions for criminal felonies and misdemeanors like assault, battery, robbery, and homicide. The Essex County Court cases also include civil trials against businesses or individuals who have broken the law. An Essex County case search can identify litigants in a trial and show whether an individual has any criminal convictions or complaints. This makes the District Attorney Office an important resource when conducting an Essex County background check. District Attorneys may provide online access to their court case information on their websites.
