Beverly Hills, California Outstanding Warrants Lawyer
A warrant for your arrest can be issued if you are suspected of committing a crime or if you fail to comply with a court order. In the state of California, most warrants involve the latter and can lead to significant legal complications if not removed, including jail time and the suspension of your driver’s license. If you fail to appear in court or comply with a court order, you may not realize a warrant has been issued for your arrest. In a number of cases, people don’t find out about a warrant until they are pulled over for a traffic ticket or are arrested on another charge. At the Law Office of Jonathan Franklin, we can often help people clear outstanding warrants by approaching the court and explaining our client’s situation and why he or she failed to appear in court or comply with a court order. In many instances, we can help people avoid jail time and the suspension of their driver’s license.

Telling Your Story to the Court
While forgetting to appear in court or deciding not to comply with a court order is not a defense, the court may take into consideration extenuating circumstances it feels justifies a lighter sentence. For instance, if you violated the terms of your parole, did you do so knowingly and intentionally? If you failed to appear in court, do you have a reason such as illness, a car breakdown, or some other reason? Did you make an effort to notify the court? Depending on the specifics of your case, we may be able to clear your warrant and minimize the consequences of failing to appear in court or comply with a court order.
