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

Failure to appear in court is a serious offense. But if addressed quickly and directly, you could avoid further legal trouble. Waiting until an arrest can eventually lead to jail time. Avoid it by letting our Baltimore criminal defense lawyers fight for you.

Mark was thorough and professional during the entire process, and secured a favorable judgement on my behalf. I highly recommend Mark and also highly recommend retaining the services of an attorney if you have been issued a speeding ticket in the State of Maryland.”
