If a bench warrant is issued, law enforcement is authorized to arrest you and bring you before the judge. Courts deal with warrants in different ways. Depending on the judge, you may be released with a a warning, or taken into custody.

There are a number of benefits to having an attorney appear on your behalf to recall and quash your warrant.

  • DON’T PAY A BAIL BOND COMPANY: When an attorney appears on your behalf, the judge will see that you are serious about resolving your case. In most cases, any bail will be reduced or eliminated entirely and your attorney will be able to appear without you being personally present in court.
  • YOUR CASE DISMISSED: Once the warrant is resolved, an attorney can use the law to find the most favorable outcome for your case. For example, if your case is old, Mr. Dicus will likely file a motion to have the charges against you dismissed because your constitutional right to a speedy trial has been violated. This is commonly referred to as a “Serna Motion.”
  • CLEAR YOUR RECORD: Finally, once the warrant has been addressed, Mr. Dicus can assist you in cleaning up your criminal record. There are many remedies available and these include expungement, arrest record sealing, probation termination motions, etc.
