Removing Warrants

Los Angeles and San Diego Defense Attorneys

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.

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.

★★★★★
I can't begin to thank Mr. Hoffman enough for his extensive efforts throughout the entire case. He went absolutely above and beyond throughout the entire process. From day one he was immediately actively pursuing ways to prevent my case from ever going to court and once that was no longer an option, actively began working on getting the case ultimately dismissed. His communication was consistent and reassuring, despite my frantic worries all the time...
★★★★★
My family and I simply owe our life and future to Ron Hoffman. If you are looking for a lawyer that goes above and beyond the call of duty you can't find a better lawyer than Ron. He took my case head on from the moment I called his office. I was involved in an accidental hit and run where I was unaware of the injury. Every step of the way, Ron guided me through an almost two year long investigation and court settlement process and was constantly by my side through out every crossroad... Bill Martin
★★★★★
Ron Hoffman and his staff were Fantastic when dealing with such a serious issue of DUI. When I first Called Ron I was very nervous and worried for my daughter and her freedom. She had a failure to appear on top of her DUI and I knew just how bad this could be. Ron was able to immediately put me at ease and gave me the confidence that there was hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. Ron was able to get the failure to appear dismissed and also no jail time for my daughter... Claude Brown

He treats each of his clients as his only client, and takes the time to develop detailed strategies and defenses for each individual case. I have never hesitated to refer Mr. Hoffman to anyone who has asked me for a good Criminal Defense attorney. He is a fantastic attorney!... Neeta P.

I had a DUI issue recently. I have never had a problem with the law as serious as this one. I did panic a bit after and knew I had to get a lawyer to help my future. I researched the Web and read the reviews for awesome DUI Lawyers. Hiring a lawyer can be intimidating. Ron's 30 years experience and step by step guidance helped me with my case. Jonie was amazing with keeping me calm. Ron Hoffman is a great lawyer and I would refer any friends or family to him... Manuel Gomez
★★★★★
Ron was so accommodating and professional. With a Firm like his you wouldn't expect him to be as accessible, but he immediately returned phone calls, was easy to communicate with and was very sympathetic to my situation. He went above and beyond and was able to get a better result than I'd hoped or expected. I highly recommend Ron Hoffman and his firm. He made a difficult and anxiety fueled process bearable and made me feel safe. He is a lovely man. One does not wish to need a criminal attorney, but if you do need one, Ron's the guy to call... Teri A.

Ron and his team were the perfect pairing for what I needed taken care of. Every step of the way he was extremely helpful and informative (not his first rodeo). His work ethic and attitude were exemplary and it showed with the results of using his services. I would recommend anyone I know to give Ron a call if they need help in his realm of expertise. Many thanks Ron and associates!... Donald N.

★★★★★
I hate lawyers. They are hard to get a hold of, greedy and unreliable. Ron is the opposite of all these things. He deserves 6 stars, and I very much recommend him. He helped me through my case with nothing but kindness, understanding, and knowledge and eventually got it dropped. Thanks for everything Ron!... Avi Z.
