Bench Warrants

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 preliminary hearings
  • 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

If you or someone you love has had a bench warrant issued against them, we advise you contact a Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney from Frank Walker Law as soon as possible. As with arrest warrants, bench warrants should never be ignored. The sooner you contact Attorney Frank Walker, the better off you will be.
