Baltimore Bench Warrant Lawyer

What is a Bench Warrant?

If you’ve missed a court hearing and are now facing charges for failure to appear, you may be worried about what happens next. In most cases, a judge will issue a bench warrant to allow law enforcement to arrest you at any time. If you are arrested, you will be transported back to the jurisdiction where the bench warrant was issued. You could either post bail or stay in jail until your new court date.

If you are afraid a bench warrant will be issued against you, our Baltimore criminal defense lawyers at The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman, LLC can help you avoid arrest and take corrective legal action. In addition, we can help you get the most favorable results in your case, whether you are fighting a speeding ticket or drug charge.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

Rather than turn yourself in, hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney can benefit your case. A lawyer can file a well-written “motion to quash bench warrant” to recall the warrant and schedule a new court date.

The motion to quash must detail the reason why the defendant missed court. The attorney can attach supporting documents and provide other forms of evidence that explains why the defendant failed to appear in court.

Common reasons for missing court include:

  • You were not served with the notice to appear in a timely manner
  • You were involved in a car accident
  • You or your child suffered an injury

  • Outstanding legal representation!

    “I was recently rear-ended on the beltway by a disbarred attorney. This person claimed that I was at fault due to road rage. The state trooper sided with the person who struck me. This resulted in 6 citations, 9 points on my driving record and $1000 in fines. If the charges would have stuck, I would have lost my license. My entire family would have been severely affected not to mention my livelihood. Thank God I chose Mark Scheuerman to represent me in court! Mark did an outstanding job examining all aspects of the charges, as well as the facts of the case. Having never experienced being in a courtroom before, he went above and beyond to prepare me for the trial. The result of his hard work was a complete acquittal. I can't speak highly enough of Attorney Scheuerman.”

  • He is the best!

    “He is the best!!!! I had quite a few traffic tickets, and my license was suspended 11 times when we first started. I was facing jail time. He not only spent two hours showing me what to do to get it back, when we went to court today I only was given a ppj!!!!!”
