What Is a Bench Warrant?
A Bronx bench warrant might be issued for any violation of the court’s rules. Usually, if you’re facing a bench warrant, it’s because you failed to appear in court.
While bench warrants are different than arrest warrants, you must understand that the bench warrant is still a formal court order that demands your immediate arrest. The police will try to find you and arrest you, and they will likely succeed. Do not try to avoid them or resist them. Call us instead.
Bench warrants might also be issued for:
- Failure to pay a fine
- Failure to follow a judge’s orders
- Failure to show proof that you completed a court-ordered class or program
- Failure to complete court-ordered community service
- Any other violation of court rules
The Benefits of Hiring a Bench Warrants Lawyer
If you’re facing a bench warrant, the court is already unhappy with you. That could affect the way the judge views you going forward.
In responding appropriately to your bench warrant, though, you may have an opportunity to make a better impression on the court.
An experienced Bronx bench warrants lawyer from our office can accompany you to court, calm your nerves, and help you make a positive and respectful appearance before the judge. Our first goal is to demonstrate to the court that you are taking this matter seriously and intend to cooperate within your rights.
Often, we find that judges are more willing to consider your needs if they sense that you are approaching them with sincere respect. Courts tend to extend greater flexibility and leniency to people who respond to warrants appropriately.
Perhaps even more importantly, we can help you sidestep common mistakes that people often make when going to court on their own. It’s all too easy to accidentally say or do the wrong thing, and any misguided statement could cause real problems for you. It is always wiser to be accompanied by an experienced lawyer in court.
