Warrants in Florida
Tampa Criminal Defense Lawyers
If you fail to appear in court at a set date and time, there will be an arrest or bench warrant issued for you. Once this happens, law enforcement has the right to arrest you on the spot, taking you into custody.
Even a routine traffic stop could lead to your arrest. While this may seem scary, it is not too late to take proper legal action. If you have a warrant out for your arrest, it is important that you act as quickly as possible.
Don't wait any longer to schedule a consultation with our firm.
