Bench Warrants Defense Lawyer Serving San Fernando Valley

What Can Be Done to Fight a Bench Warrant?

When someone has been charged with a crime or received probation for one and has certain terms that must be complied with following these court actions, failure to comply could lead to a bench warrant. If you have a court appearance scheduled and fail to appear, the court can issue a bench warrant for your arrest. Failing to appear in court because of personal reasons such as illness or emergency is normally not an excuse to not appear. This means that your probation officer - if you have one - can come to your door or place of work and immediately arrest you. Even a simple traffic stop by a police officer can end you up in jail.

If you have failed to meet the terms of probation or parole, or even a court appearance on some other matter, you need to contact a San Fernando criminal defense attorney to assist you in preventing a bench warrant from landing you in jail. Having someone come to your home or work unexpectedly is not only embarrassing; it can cost you your job and disrupt your family.

The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Vallens can walk you into court to get rid of any arrest or bench warrant so that you will no longer be at risk of being jailed. Sometimes we can even have warrants recalled without the client being in court. But you must act quickly, as a bench warrant or arrest means the police are looking for you and you can be arrested at any time.

Bench Warrant Recalled While Client Still Out of State

In one week, Jeffrey Vallens was effective in getting two different bench warrants recalled for two different clients in two different courts. This happened while the clients were safe at home in other states. That is correct. Mr. Vallens recalled bench warrants for his clients without the clients having to come to court or risk going to jail. Both clients were released on their promises to return to court and did not even have to post bail. Both cases were resolved without jail time.

Remember that being arrested is never convenient. If there is a bench warrant for your arrest, you are subject to arrest at any time of the day or night. You could spend days in jail waiting to see a judge. If you are out of state you may get transferred to another jurisdiction and it could take weeks before you get out. This could cost you a job, a reputation or even more.

Don't ignore a bench warrant! Contact a San Fernando criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Vallens for quick relief from the danger of being arrested.
