One of the most frightening things that can happen to an individual is to learn that a warrant for their arrest has been issued. A warrant for arrest means that any law enforcement officer can arrest you immediately and bring you to court. This can occur when a prosecuting authority has sought and obtained a warrant based on an investigation of your conduct, or it can occur anytime you have been ordered to appear by a court, and failed to do so.
The best advice is to take care of outstanding warrants as soon as possible. Most judges appreciate individuals who responsibly and voluntarily take care of outstanding warrants. However, this process is intimidating, confusing, and can result in unneeded, or needlessly extended incarceration. A knowledgeable and experienced attorney can determine why a warrant was issued, and what is the best course of action to take.
Resolving an outstanding warrant is never an easy or comfortable matter. It usually requires either the surrender to authorities or the posting of bail, and often both. In some instances an experienced and knowledgeable attorney can accomplish the recall of a warrant for arrest without either. With the right advice and direction, this process does not have to be intimidating or humiliating.
