Cambridge, Outstanding Warrant Attorneys
The Cambridge District Courthouse, located at 4040 Mystic Valley Parkway in Medford, handles a variety of areas of criminal and noncriminal matters. If you are charged with an offense related to an outstanding warrant in Cambridge, Arlington or Belmont, this is where you would have to appear in court. In such a situation, it is imperative to have experienced capable criminal defense representation to guide you – which is what we provide at Altman & Altman LLP.
An outstanding warrant may be issued to you whether you are still a resident in the state that the crime was committed or if you have moved elsewhere. In recent years, authorities have transferred much of their database information into digital files, making it much easier to track and send notices of outstanding warrants to individuals across Massachusetts and the country.
The criminal defense attorneys at Altman & Altman LLP understand that receiving a notice about an outstanding warrant can be a terrifying experience, and not knowing what might happen to you – especially if you receive the notice while you’re out of state – can be even scarier. However, you don’t need to go through this ordeal alone – as we have helped hundreds of clients navigate such a situation in our over 50 years of experience in criminal defense matters.
An outstanding warrant means, essentially, that you are wanted for arrest in connection to some kind of crime. This might be for failing to show up to a court appearance, failing to pay parking tickets, alimony, child support or disobeying a restraining order or another similar type of court order, or it might be in connection to an investigation of a crime that occurred some time ago – such as an unsolved case of shoplifting, assault and battery, perhaps even sexual assault or murder.
However, having a warrant out for your arrest does not mean that you are guilty. Once you receive the order, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney, and that you do not speak to law enforcement officials without a criminal defense attorney present. Even if you have a warrant out, you still retain your rights against self-incrimination, and you still retain the right to hire legal counsel.
One of our experienced criminal defense attorneys will be able to sit down with you and go over the details of what happened, and we can provide a clear plan of action for moving forward that will result in the best possible outcome for you – regardless of what the outstanding warrant is in regards to.
Having a warrant out is essentially a ticking clock. If you are stopped by a police officer for something as innocuous as speeding or having an out-of-date registration sticker on your car, a simple background check on your name will reveal the warrant, and police will have cause to immediately arrest you. Once you are in custody, the need for a competent and experienced criminal defense attorney becomes even more apparent.
At Altman & Altman LLP, we understand the stressful situation you are in and we will offer a helping hand when it seems your back is against the wall. We will provide a free consultation to go over the details of your unique case and find the best legal avenue to address the situation, and always with a goal of obtaining the best possible outcome for you.
