Old & Outstanding Warrants

Arrest warrants are issued when charges are filed against you through a criminal complaint or an indictment on felony charges. An arrest warrant gives police the right to detain you. Often, the negative consequences of an arrest warrant compound as more time goes by.Default Warrants
More commonly issued default warrants are for failing to appear in court. Although they are more prevalent than arrest warrants, continued disregard of a default warrant can carry many of the same consequences as arrest warrants.Removal Of Warrants And Beyond
The criminal defense lawyers at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. have successfully removed both types of warrants. Further, it is likely that you could be incarcerated when you appear in court and we will communicate and negotiate with law enforcement on your behalf. Once the warrant is removed, we will ensure you have the proper paperwork in case you are stopped by police who incorrectly believe the warrant is still outstanding.Risks Warrants Carry
A life of constantly looking over your shoulder is a burden nobody should be forced to bear. Even minor offenses, which can arise in day-to-day, innocuous situations, can subject you to immediate incarceration. Imagine a simple traffic stop, speeding violation, or having your license plate randomly run by police. Recently, many criminal records have been placed online, making it increasingly difficult to evade a warrant. When discovered, you can be held until you appear before a judge or detained until you post bail. Further, your driver's license can be suspended, your ability to travel can be restricted, and background checks can reflect your open cases. The best way to avoid these penalties is to address a warrant with the help of experienced and dedicated counsel.
The criminal attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. know that dealing with a warrant is much more prudent than waiting to be exposed.

Many times, resolving these cases with minimal consequences requires knowledge of the tendencies and procedures of the particular court involved. Several of our attorneys are former prosecutors and may have worked in the court or county that issued your warrant. We will always use this experience and knowledge to help you.
