DUI Bench Warrants
Many people driving around Los Angeles have bench warrants for their arrest related to DUI cases. In my opinion, it makes sense to hire a local experienced Los Angeles DUI attorney to help you for peace of mind, if for nothing else. In many cases, the bench warrant is missing its court date.
Taking care of your DUI matter will bring you a great sense of relief and assist you with enjoying the rest of your life. Having to look over your shoulder as you move around is simply something no one should bear when having the warrant recalled is a reasonably straightforward process.
Using a skilled attorney who has been down the road, you are about to travel and have had success, is the only way to go.
- Why Would A Warrant Be Issued For My Arrest?
Once the warrant is recalled, what happens next is where the issue arises. This question is best answered by a seasoned DUI defense attorney who has all the facts related to the DUI and your life and has discussed what you can bring to the table to settle this thing.
There is nothing more satisfying in my job than seeing a client's relief when the bench warrant is lifted and they cannot proceed ahead in a positive direction! They had to suffer through stress and worry when taking the first step that should have been taken so long ago.
Review Your Case for Best Strategy
The first step in putting your warrant behind you is to call our law firm and come in for a face-to-face meeting to discuss the details of your situation so we can put them together with our years of experience.
Once we have your scenario flushed out, we can figure out your goals related to the case and see if it is possible to achieve them realistically.
In this process, I always find that being straightforward with the client is the most effective way to deal with DUI case issues. Answering the question, “what is the judge likely to do to me…” is so much easier when I have the history of the case and your reasons for being in this position.
Once we have our goals specifically defined, I will let you know what you can do to assist in achieving the goals and set about putting the pieces in place to have a successful result.
Not every case can be treated the same because not every client has the same situation, prosecutors and judges are different (depending on which court the case is pending), and DUI bench warrant cases are fluid things that must be handled the right way.
It is my experience that going into the court prepared with answers to the judge's questions that make sense is the best approach. We can usually anticipate what the judge will focus on and ensure that we have the correct answers and a solution.
Those people who go in there with no answers to why they bench warranted and what they will do to make things right are flirting with disaster and leaving the judge with no choice but to exact a harsh punishment.
If, on the other hand, we go in there with a game plan and the judge sees we are serious about fixing the problems that led to the warrant, then we come from a position of strength.
Judges are busy and do not have the time or patience to deal with cases that keep coming before them again and again because the defendant did not take care of the business.
If we can show them that you have hired an attorney to take care of your case once and for all and never bother them again, we have now taken the first step towards a successful outcome and getting you out of the criminal justice system. Contact the Hedding Law Firm for help.
