For criminal charges that do not rise to the level where an arrest is made, the police can opt to apply for criminal charges to be filed through a Clerk Magistrate Hearing. These cases can be thought of as an attempt by the courts to resolve less challenging cases in a setting that is possibly more amenable to creative solutions.
If you are facing charges in a Clerk Magistrate Hearing or fear you will be, we can help you begin taking action right away. The sooner we are able to start, the more favorable the options which may be available. In some limited instances, it may be possible, to prevent the filing of any charges at all with a probation agreement that has certain requirements such as avoiding any further legal trouble for six months.
Some of the common issues we are able to help secure positive resolutions for in Clerk Magistrate Hearings include:
- Driving while suspended
- Reckless driving
Any misdemeanor that does not involve an actual arrest can be resolved through a Clerk Magistrate Hearing.
