Criminal Defense Over 12 Years' Experience Protecting Your Rights

Have an Outstanding Warrant in Florida?

Representing in Duval, Clay, Nassau, and St. Johns Counties

As a criminal defense attorney, I get calls about warrants on daily basis, but most people calling about a warrant don’t understand what it really means. A warrant is a document that authorizes an action of some sort. In the criminal defense context, we are dealing with arrest warrants which authorize law enforcement officers to take someone into custody. On the other hand, a search warrant gives law enforcement authority to conduct a search at a location (car, house, purse) and seize any potential evidence they find.

What are Some of the Reasons that Warrants are Issued?

  • An alleged crime was committed, and the sheriff’s office obtained a warrant for the person’s arrest.
  • Violation of Probation Warrant (VOP warrant).
  • Failure to appear for a criminal hearing (FTA).
  • Capias issued for failure to show up to court after you ignored a criminal traffic ticket.

How to Resolve an Outstanding Warrant?

If you have an outstanding warrant, the worst thing you can do is avoid it. You may think: “I don’t want to deal with this right now. I have a job and a family to take care of.” But unfortunately, you will be pulled over for speeding or a broken tail light, and the officer will run your name through the system and find a warrant. You will be caught off guard. You will be unprepared. It is always the worst timing.

You are always better off dealing with the warrant. A criminal defense attorney can help evaluate your options to see if you can avoid spending a night in jail. A warrant can also bring traumatic consequences, if the officers serve it at your job or even at home. Also, importantly, the Judge and prosecutor will pay attention to the fact that you voluntarily decided to deal with the warrant and address the underlying case.
