Targeted Legal Representation to Fit Your Specific Needs
Many of our clients do not require a full criminal or DUI defense. Their needs are much more specific and involve appearing in administrative and departmental hearings to resolve certain types of problems. At the Massachusetts DUI Defense Group, we handle a wide range of legal matters short of trial, appearing in courtrooms throughout the Commonwealth on behalf of clients.
Our Statewide Strategy Works, Whether You Appear in Court or a Hearing Room
Because every Massachusetts administrative agency or hearing officer has a specific way of doing things, our founder and lead attorney, Irwin M. Pollack, assigns particular criminal defense attorneys to regions of the state so they become familiar with the hearing officers and other officials in their assigned areas. This has an immediate practical benefit for you; your matter will not be derailed because of small mistakes made by a lawyer unfamiliar with the processes that apply to your case.
If you need to appear at a hearing in Worcester or elsewhere in the state, contact our Massachusetts law firm today to learn how we can help you with an issue involving your driver's license or other administrative matter.

A wide variety of legal issues are not handled in court; rather, they are administrative or procedural matters that are decided in hearing rooms and offices. Our lawyers appear on behalf of clients at:
- Clerk magistrate hearings: These types of hearings are common in misdemeanor cases involving drunk driving, leaving the scene or assault. The purpose of a clerk magistrate hearing is to determine whether there is probable cause to issue a criminal complaint. These hearings are sometimes called "show cause" hearings. Make no mistake; these hearings are serious business.
- Probation violation hearings: If you were charged with violating the terms of your probation, you need experienced representation on your side. Otherwise, you might find yourself in jail or prison.
- Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) hearings: If your driver's license was suspended or revoked, we will discuss your options and appear on your behalf at RMV hearings. Whether your license was suspended pending your DUI court date or for some other reason, talk with us to learn what your next steps should be.
- Record sealing sessions: Even if your case is dismissed or you are acquitted, you will still have a criminal record. Sealing removes that record from public view so that landlords, potential employers and others cannot see it, and it allows you to answer "no" when asked if you have a criminal record.
- Warrant removals: You may not even know that you have an outstanding warrant until you try to renew your license or conduct some other transaction. We know how to clear warrants so that you are not vulnerable to arrest.
Because our attorneys appear frequently at hearings such as these, we know the most effective way to present your case, whether you are in Worcester County or Berkshire County.
