Bench Warrants

A bench warrant is a type of arrest warrant, issued by a judge. It is then entered into the computer system for the Department of Justice. If you are stopped by a law enforcement person who runs your driver license through the system, your warrant will appear and you will be arrested on the spot. Your driver's license may also be suspended until your warrant is cleared.

It is important to work with an attorney like the Newport Beach bench warrant lawyer at the firm who has a track record in handling bench warrants. In the case of a misdemeanor, he may be able to have the warrant recalled or removed from the system so that your case can be handled.
