Bench Warrant Lawyer in Pittsburgh
Have You Received a Bench Warrant for a Failure to Appear in Court or Before a Judge?
A bench warrant is a written order, issued by a judge, which instructs
law enforcement officials to take the individual named in the warrant
into custody in order to compel them to appear before the judge. Bench
warrants can be issued for all types of reasons. Even failing to appear
in court after being subpoenaed for routine
traffic offenses, will lead to a bench warrant being issued for your immediate arrest.
We understand how frightening and confusing it can be to have a warrant
out for your arrest.
Most bench warrants in the Pittsburgh area are issued for one or more of
the following reasons:
- A failure to appear for a formal arraignment
A failure to appear at
- A failure to appear at a pre-trial conference
- A failure to pay court-ordered fees
A failure to complete court-ordered drug or drunk driving (DUI) classes
A failure to complete anger management classes following a conviction on
domestic violence charges
- A failure to appear in court for a trial date
- Any other failure to appear in court when you have been subpoenaed to be present
