Orange County Bench Warrant Lawyer
A judge may issue a warrant for your arrest when you are ordered to appear in court. A bench warrant can be issued for any of the following reasons:
- Failure to make a court appearance;
- A new charge has been filed against you;
- Failure to pay court fines;
- Failure to complete court imposed obligations;
- Any other reason the court may find reasonable to issue a warrant.
The Law Offices of Stull & Stull will be of great assistance throughout the state helping you to answer the warrant. We have more than 45 years of combined criminal trial experience in Orange County as well as Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Kern, Tulare, Fresno and Ventura counties.
You will not have to enter the courtroom on your own, as a judge can order you into custody immediately. If this happens he will set a bail amount, and you would then have to post a bond to get out.
If there is a warrant against you, we can assist by appearing in court and requesting the court to recall your warrant. We can attempt to recall or quash the warrant. We can request an “O.R.” or “own recognizance release, where you would not be required to post bail. If the court has already set a bail amount in a prior proceeding, the likelihood is much greater that if you show up in court, the judge will order you into custody.
If the warrant has been issued as a result of a felony charge, we can arrange to have a bail bondsman in advance of your appearance, so they will be prepared to bail you out if you are ordered into custody.
If you have a warrant for your arrest that you are aware of, or you do not know whether you have a warrant for your arrest, please contact the Law Offices of Stull & Stull. We will help you determine if any warrants are outstanding against you, educate you on the laws surrounding warrants as well as resolve the legal matters that led to the issuance of the warrant in the first place.
