Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
The DOC lawyers are lawyers that handle parole hearings and some criminal defense attorneys handle these cases and if not the DOC has like a public defenders office that will represent the inmate if the inmate cannot afford an attorney that your son can request. Many times, the parole hearings are set automatically by their system and inmates are called to testify only if they have evidence they want to present or if the board has information they want to hear from the inmate that is not in the inmate's case file. Most of these hearings are conducted simply by review of the inmate files and reports from the inmate services social workers unless the inmate requests to appear and speak before the board with some evidence that they want to present to the board to consider regarding parole eligibility.
