Bench Warrants Lawyer in South Florida
What is a Bench Warrant?
A bench warrant is a warrant issued for your arrest by the court when a person fails to appear in court for a scheduled legal procedure. Often a person misses a court appearance appointment due to a personal emergency, illness or lack of notice regarding the appointment. However, the court is normally not very interested in the reasons why and will issue the bench warrant for your arrest.
Usually, the best way to remove a bench warrant is to retain the services of a Florida criminal defense attorney so as to file a motion in the court on your behalf. Once a bench warrant is out for your arrest, you can be picked up and put in jail at any time, even following a routine traffic stop. You can even be picked up at home or work, resulting in embarrassment, possible loss of employment and disrepute. Handling it before this happens is vital to your peace of mind and future.
At Bogle Law once you retain our services, we will file a motion to cancel the bench warrant so that you will no longer be at risk of being jailed.
