A Tough Defense for the Toughest Offenses®



A “Magistrate” is a type of judge who typically handles minor cases, preliminary hearing matters, and pretrial motions in the criminal justice system. Depending on the jurisdiction, a magistrate might also issue search or arrest warrants, set bail, or preside over cases involving small claims, traffic violations, or misdemeanors.

At Wasatch Defense Lawyers, our team of experienced attorneys regularly appears before magistrates as part of our comprehensive defense services.
