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

  • Mark is the man!

    “Mark took care of all the heavy lifting of my speeding ticket. While going to school in Maryland, I attained a speeding ticket in a school zone. Soon after I moved back to my home state of New York, and lost the ticket during the move. Soon enough I was notified my license was going to be suspended in the state of New York as well as Maryland. Mark took care of the issue over the phone with me , went to court for me against a tough judge and the police officer had shown up. Mark got it to a probation before judgement and I actually got a refund on the fine I paid to the court! Mark is the man! If I ever have another traffic issue in the state of MD. (fingers crossed), Mark will be my first phone call!”

  • Effective, Precise and Thorough!!

    “Mr. Scheuerman was an effective lawyer who gave great legal advise and consultation with great results. He exceeds expectation with aggressive strategy and precision. I would definitely recommend his services to others. Never go to court by yourself, at the risk of points and increase insurance rates. Mark save me from these penalties, and he can help you too.”

  • Reseable and still the best.

    “Mr. Scheuerman was great. When we spoke over the phone and he made claims that he could get me this and that. Then when we got to court thats what he did and more. Not only can he keep his word but he was fair on the price of his service. Proving that the most expensive lawyer aren't the best. I am so glad i choose him to represent me.”
