Worcester Show Cause And Clerk’s Hearings Lawyer
There is a strong social stigma that individuals with criminal records cannot escape, no matter how law abiding they are after a conviction. They have trouble getting jobs, renting apartments and doing other things entirely unrelated to the crime. This is a terrible consequence of our laws, never intended by the legislature. At the law office of Gregory Casale, we strive to protect our clients’ records and their futures through show cause hearings/clerk’s magistrate hearings.
During a clerk’s hearing, you have a tremendous opportunity to avoid grave consequences. If you have been summoned to court for a clerk’s hearing or show cause hearing, contact Massachusetts criminal defense attorney Gregory Casale to discuss your options. Our law firm is available 24 hours a day, even afterhours and on weekends. Call 508-556-6938 or toll free at 877-752-7501.
Preventing A Criminal Record Through Clerk’s Hearings
Clerk’s magistrate hearings also known as show cause hearings require the Commonwealth to show that they have sufficient evidence to prosecute a case. While the bar is low — prosecutors must only show that there is reasonable evidence to charge you — the stakes are high. Clerk’s hearings: 1. Can keep the criminal charge off your record. 2. Are cost-effective. Unlike a trial, which usually requires multiple appearances, a show cause hearing is a one-time appearance. If successful, it saves you time and money.
