Have a Las Vegas Warrant – We Can Help!
Bench warrants are issued by the Court when a person fails to appear for a court appearance — whether it be the arraignment, trial, preliminary hearing or status check. If you are unsure whether or not a Bench Warrant has been issued for you, you should contact my office immediately so we may inquire on your behalf.
Outstanding Bench Warrant
If you have an outstanding bench warrant, you must have it quashed, or you risk being arrested and going to jail. Once you are arrested you may be required to post bail with the Court or wait several days in jail until a Judge can hear your case. The issuance of a Bench Warrant can turn seemingly minor charges, including traffic citations, into major inconveniences. Traffic Ticket Defenders will file a motion immediately to have the bench warrant quashed. Many warrants can be quashed on the same day. Once the warrant is quashed and you’re no longer at risk of being arrested, we will also handle any further court appearances to bring your case to a successful conclusion.
Warrant for Arrest
An arrest warrant is different from a bench warrant. With an arrest warrant, law enforcement gets an order from a judge to arrest a person when there is reasonable suspicion that a crime has occurred. It is quite common that a person may not even know an arrest warrant has been issued until law enforcement shows up at their residence or work place. If you suspect (or know) that there is a warrant for your arrest, contact us immediately. We will file a motion and attempt to have the arrest warrant recalled before you are arrested.
