What Is a Warrant?
An arrest warrant can be issued for a number of reasons.
These could include:
- You have been charged with a new crime
- You missed a court date
- You violated the terms of your probation
If a warrant is issued for your arrest and you are arrested, you will be taken to jail where you will wait to see a judge. If you cannot make bail, you will simply sit there and wait. Do not be put in that situation.
Once you find out there is an active warrant for your arrest, or you think there might be, call us so we can find out for you.

In more serious cases, we can speak to the prosecuting attorney on your behalf and negotiate a bond on your case. You can then turn yourself in with us by your side and bond out immediately that same day.
Wanted for Questioning
Have you been contacted by a police officer or detective who wants to ask you questions? If so, we recommend that you do not speak to the police until you have consulted with an attorney regarding the situation.

As your advocate, we will contact the specific law enforcement officer on your behalf and try to obtain more detailed information. We then give you that information so you know what is going on, why the police want to talk to you, and what is likely going to happen.
