At Joyner + Joyner, P.C., we receive numerous calls from individuals who are trying to determine whether they have an outstanding warrant in the State of Texas and what we can do to help them.
Let us start with the basics and explain why a warrant is issued. An individual can get a warrant for a number of reasons that vary from something as simple as an unresolved traffic citation to something as serious as a felony offense. For example, with traffic violations an outstanding warrant may be issued when an unresolved citation is reported to the Failure to Appear / Failure to Pay program. In essence, the court is authorizing law enforcement to place you under arrest and bring you to court to face your charges.
The next step is to determine whether there is an outstanding warrant out for your arrest. When you call our office one of our attorneys will gather the necessary information and conduct a free case evaluation. We can determine if you have an outstanding warrant, where your warrant originated and provide you with the options available to you. Our goal is to resolve your case without having you set foot in jail.
If you do have an oustanding warrant, our attorneys can approach the judge and attempt to set a bond on your behalf. Even if a bond is already set, we can approach the judge and request a reduction in the amount of your bond. Once a bond has been posted, your case will no longer be in warrant status. Joyner + Joyner, P.C. will zealously advocate on your behalf in an attempt to resolve your case in the most effective manner.
Don’t wait to be contacted by law enforcement or the next warrant round up. Contact us today and we may be able to help you remove your outstanding warrant without you taking a step in jail.
