Should I Contact An Attorney If I Have An Outstanding Warrant In Massachusetts?

If you have an outstanding warrant in Massachusetts, you should absolutely contact an attorney. You could just surrender yourself, you could just walk into the court and say, here I am everybody. It's critical that you come in voluntarily, certainly, because that will be an argument for you. But what you can do if you contact an attorney, is you can set the stage. You can have that attorney contact a prosecutor. The key issue is for you not to be held on high bail because of that warrant. An attorney can help you do that much more than you can for yourself.

What Happens If I Have An Outstanding Warrant In Massachusetts?

In Massachusetts, if you have an outstanding warrant, for example because you defaulted, you didn't go to court one day, you have a very good chance of going to jail. Even awaiting trial in your case, the main issue for bail is whether or not the defendant is likely to return. If the defendant has a history of not returning, the judge will take that into account when setting bail, or holding the person without bail. What you can do if you have a warrant out, and you've defaulted, is to contact an attorney, and you try to work out how you voluntarily come back. That's going to be your best argument to stay out of incarceration while your case is pending. You're going to end up answering to the warrant sooner or later. Better you do it on your terms.

    I really appreciate your prompt and highly effective assistance on this matter. After six different OUI attorneys told me that there was no way to recall the warrant and dismiss the charges against me without me returning to Mass from California, you managed to accomplish what they said was impossible. Thanks again!
