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

  • Made a great difference in our lives!

    “Following numerous frustrating experiences with Maryland State bureaucracies, we engaged Mark's services to resolve an important identity issue. Mark worked with the Assistant State's Attorney responsible for the state agency involved, and was able to resolve our issue within 6 weeks. We had been trying to solve this problem for over a year! Thanks Mark, for helping us with this important issue, which made a great difference in our lives!”

  • 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.”

  • Professional, Compassionate and an Extremely Excellent Attorney!

    “I was arrested on a Friday night and I called Mark on Saturday morning. Mark met with me that afternoon. Throughout the MVA hearing and my trial, Mark was professional, caring and compassionate. I was facing multiple traffic violations and a 2nd DUI. Needless to say, I was scared and my future uncertain. Mark explained to me what I had to do to prepare and how he would proceed with my case. Mark always made me feel like we were on this journey together. I never felt alone. At the MVA hearing, Mark saved my license and at my trial, Mark saved my life! Mark's representation of my case was so well presented the judge reduced my charge to a PPJ with no points on my driving record. I am still in amazement what Mark was able to accomplish. Mark truly cares about his clients. He is not only an excellent attorney but a wonderful caring person. I highly recommend Mark and will utilize his law firm again should the need ever arise.”
