Warrants Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale

If the police knock on your door and present a warrant to arrest you or search the premises, it can be greatly upsetting and shocking. Under the U.S. Constitution, you are protected against illegal searches and seizures. A qualified lawyer will determine whether the warrant was legally justified.

Anytime a warrant is out against you, it is crucial that you have the right legal representation on your side. Our Fort Lauderdale warrants lawyer can determine whether there were any missteps on behalf of the authorities in obtaining the warrant.

Reasons That a Warrant May Be Issued

A warrant is legal authorization for law enforcement officers to arrest you or to search and seize your property. Law enforcement must have probable cause, not suspicion, to justify a warrant. One may come from the following origins:
  • An arrest warrant following the allegation of probable cause after an investigation
  • A warrant filed by the state Attorney General’s office
  • A bench warrant for failure to appear in court
  • A warrant for violation of probation
  • An out-of-county warrant
  • An out-of-state warrant

Types Of Cases Where Arrest Warrants May Be Issued

In some circumstances, the suspect may not be immediately available to arrest. If this happens, a warrant is usually issued for the arrest of the individual. Common charges where warrants are employed include DUI, drunk driving, domestic violence, and drug charges, as well as violent crimes, weapons and firearms cases, and property crimes. A suspect may also expect a warrant in cases of probation violations, obstruction, and criminal traffic incidents.

A warrant for your arrest is often issued for your home address, though it may occasionally include your place of business, as well. Some warrants come in the mail from a bond company. In such a situation, you would be allowed to turn yourself in and avoid arrest. Another type of warrant is a Notice to Appear, which requires your presence in front of a judge.

How Your Lawyer Will Help Your Cause

It is always alarming to receive a warrant, whether it comes in person or in the mail. If you have a warrant from another state, you will face extradition. Regardless, you don’t want to be without legal assistance in such critical matters.

A Fort Lauderdale warrants lawyer will examine the warrant and the facts around your case to determine whether it was obtained and issued legally. Your attorney can evaluate whether you actually have an outstanding warrant and whether to file a motion to surrender. Your defense plan will also include strategies to file other motions, such as a motion to withdraw, which allows you to appear in court without being arrested. Most importantly, your legal counsel will ensure that your rights are protected.
