Constructed in 1980 to cater to the requirements of Deerfield Beach and neighboring communities, the Broward County North Regional Courthouse manages cases related to civil, traffic, and misdemeanor matters.
The northern section of the Broward County Judicial Complex has been renamed the Judge Thomas J. “TJ” Reddick, Jr. North Building in tribute to the former judge and founder of the TJ Reddick Bar Association.
Judge Reddick holds the distinction of being the first Black attorney to establish a law practice in Broward County, receive an appointment to the Broward County Court of Record, and secure election as a Circuit Court Judge in the State of Florida.

Traffic and Misdemeanor Services
The majority of civil traffic infraction hearings are presided over by a Hearing Officer. Individuals who are issued a traffic citation have three choices within 30 days: paying the specified traffic fine as indicated on the citation, enrolling in a driver improvement course, or filing a request for a hearing to challenge the citation.
County Civil Services
The County Civil Division deals with a range of cases, including Landlord Tenant disputes, Small Claims cases (involving amounts up to $8,000), and various other civil matters such as Auto Negligence, Condominium disputes, and Personal Injury Protection cases (involving amounts from $8,001 up to $50,000).
On the other hand, the County Court Criminal Division is responsible for handling criminal misdemeanor cases, criminal traffic offenses, violations of municipal and county ordinances, and civil traffic infractions.
Criminal misdemeanor cases encompass violations like petit theft, simple battery, and other similar offenses. Criminal traffic matters include motor vehicle violations such as driving with a suspended license, driving under the influence, and operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license.
