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

Call (410) 630-4274 to Avoid Arrest Today

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.

  • Life Saver

    “I'm a business professional who felt like they had everything to lose. Minutes after meeting Mark, I knew he was the right attorney to help me through this trying time. Mark has a great reputation and good rapport with not only the judges and prosecutors but often the police officers as well. Based on the individual circumstances of my case, Mark laid out plan for me to complete prior to my court date. The end result could not have been more favorable and far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend hiring Mark Scheuerman.”

  • Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer.

    “Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer. He represented me two days in a row, and within a week of being hired. Both court dates had nothing short of fantastic outcomes. He really cares about people, and it shows in the way he conducts himself in and out of the courtroom. He just loves what he does, which makes the process much more smooth. His prices were extremely fair as well, considering the caliber of work you're getting out of it.”

    William

  • Knowledgeable and great communicator

    “I got a speeding ticket in a different state and Mark did a fantastic job of explaining my options to me and delivering the best result. He was clearly very knowledgeable on the subject matter and our conversations were concise and to-the-point. Would highly recommend.”
