The biggest mistake made by clients facing outstanding warrants is avoiding them and hoping they go away. There is no convenient time to be arrested. However, clients who typically choose this approach end up being arrested at the worst time. An experienced attorney may be able, depending on the circumstances, to arrange for a “walk thru” where you do not spend any time in jail.
Where a walk thru at booking is not an option, you should still not wait to address the situation. Many times, there are alternatives to prolonged incarceration including: a motion for bond reduction, ROR or an agreed upon disposition. Securing representation in regards to a VOP warrant is extremely important because a judge may deny bond entirely. Therefore, the efforts of a skilled attorney with the requisite knowledge and experience regarding warrants is priceless in achieving your best possible result in such cases and minimizing any time in jail.
