Daytona Bench Warrant Lawyer
Have You Missed a Court Appearance?
When you miss a court appearance, it is considered that you are in contempt of court, and the court will issue a bench warrant. The warrant permits your immediate arrest, and can be issued in both civil and criminal cases. Many times when a person is arrested on a bench warrant, they are kept in jail without bail.
If you are the subject of a bench warrant, contact a Daytona Beach criminal defense lawyer for qualified legal advice and representation. You will need competent legal assistance from an experienced attorney when addressing this important matter.
