Clerk's Hearings in Somerville

The state of Massachusetts routinely uses “clerk's hearings” to dispose of public complaints and misdemeanor cases in an efficient manner. Simple assaults, threats and restraining order violations may all be handled through a clerk's hearing. Often, the clerk considers citizen complaints and decides whether to make an official charge. An experienced attorney can assist you in identifying options to dispose of the case before charges are filed. Citizens often fail to see the seriousness of a hearing and opt to handle it themselves, with the intention of securing an attorney if the hearing goes badly. Presenting your own case at this proceeding can be extremely damaging to your overall case. Without the benefit of an attorney, you may unknowingly provide testimony that will be used against you at a later time. A knowledgeable defense lawyer can advocate for you in a clerk's hearing without you having to present any testimony.
