Phoenix, Arizona attorney providing to those who have failed to appear for a Court hearing
Two things typically happen when you fail to appear in an Arizona Court. First, a warrant is issued for your arrest. Second, the warrant is put into a database which links to the MVD. This means that if you are stopped by law enforcement, for any reason, you are facing the possibility of being arrested on the spot. The longer the situation drags on then the more trouble you will be in when you are eventually caught. Hiring an attorney sooner, rather than later, can assist you in rectifying the situation.
Bretton assists Phoenix residents who have failed to appear for a court date. He will immediately file a Motion to clear an arrest warrant. He will quickly inform you of the hearing date so that your case may get back on track.
