San Jose Bench Warrants Lawyers
Failing to appear in court, failing to pay fines or violating a court-issued protective order can have serious consequences, starting with the issuance of a bench warrant by a judge. Contrary to what you might believe based on speaking to other criminal defense lawyers, an arrest is not automatic. Getting an attorney involved early can result in the bench warrant being recalled.

Failing to obey a court order is a serious legal matter. By not taking immediate action, law enforcement will arrest you and bring you before the judge. You will either be placed in custody or released with a warning. From there, you may be facing a probation violation charge, county jail or state prison sentence, or DMV license suspension.
In many cases where bench warrants were issued, we have been able to negotiate with judges and prosecutors and address the circumstances surrounding your no-show. The goal is simply to keep you out of jail.
