Handling of Bench Warrants
Failing to appear or failing to comply with a lawful Court Order will result in a warrant issued for your arrest. There are numerous situations in which a warrant or a bench warrant may be issued, including:
- Failure to appear in court
- Not paying fines
- Failure to comply with court orders
- Refusing to show up for community service or educational programs
- Probation violations
- Committing a crime while on release pending trial
Our office works to remove warrants before you even appear in court, depending on the type of charges. Even where a client has already been arrested for a warrant, we will go to court in an effort to obtain bail and get our client out of custody. The court appreciates a client voluntarily coming into court making a “good faith” effort to correct this problem regardless of how long it has been since the warrant or failure to appear was issued. As my client, you could definitely benefit from handling this matter sooner rather than later.
Working With Probation Violations
When you are charged with a probation violation, the only issue is whether you violated a judge’s orders. It no longer matters whether you committed the original crime. And, if your probation is revoked, you can be facing the maximum punishment for that crime, or imposition of a suspended sentence which means the potential of and possibly mandatory custody time in jail or prison. As you can see probation violations are particularly serious and you need to retain a truly experienced lawyer who will know the proper strategies to pursue in your defense.
