Under California law, failing to comply with a court order or appear in court when required can result in a warrant being issued for your arrest. Once this warrant is issued, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may suspend your driver's license and you can face serious consequences. If you have outstanding warrants for failures to appear, it is important to resolve the matter as soon as possible. At the law firm of HOFFMAN & ASSOCIATES, we offer skilled representation to help our clients promptly remove warrants from their record and protect their freedom and reputation.Hire Defense Attorneys You Can Count On!

While in many cases, warrants are issued for the arrest of criminal suspects, the majority of warrants in California are issued as a result of an individual's noncompliance. An arrest warrant or bench warrant may be issued for many reasons.Examples of Warrants We Help People Remove:
- Failure to pay a fine
- Failure to complete community service
- Failure to complete/follow terms of probation, i.e. court ordered alcohol program
- Failure to appear in court when required by a police citation
- Failure to obey a court order
- Failure to appear in a required court appearance (indictment, sentencing, etc)
Many clients face serious problems when they are pulled over for speeding or another minor infraction. The officer checks the driver's record to find there is an outstanding warrant. The individual may be immediately arrested. While our office can help clients clear warrants at this stage, we advocate for early intervention before our client is ever arrested.Proactive Resolution of Outstanding Warrants
Properly appearing in court or seeking to correct the failure to obey a court order is always in our client's best interest. Judges and prosecutors appreciate individuals voluntarily coming into court making a "good faith" effort to correct this problem - regardless of the cause or how long it has been since the warrant was issued.
We explain our clients' unique situation and demonstrate why they did not appear, did not pay the fine, or otherwise did not comply with a court order. After removing the warrants from our clients' record, we are also capable of assisting clients with restoring their driver's license if it was suspended as a result of the outstanding warrant.Contact Us
