Queens Warrants Attorney
Taking Legal Action in Response to a Warrant
When law enforcement suspects an individual of committing a crime or believes that he or she harbors illegal substances or motives, they will issue an arrest warrant for that individual or obtain a search warrant to search that individual's property. Warrants may be issued for any number of reasons. Though most warrants are issued in direct response to an individual's actions or because someone missed a court date or summons, warrants do not entail an individual's guilt. If there is a warrant out for your arrest or if you would like to contest a search warrant, you should speak to a criminal defense attorney without delay. The longer you wait in these matters the less chance you have of a successful outcome.
The Warrant Process
In order to obtain a warrant, first a judge and other law enforcement personnel must hold a warrant application hearing. During this hearing, the judge will review the circumstances involved in the case and determine if there is enough probable cause to merit the issuance of an arrest or search warrant. If there is indeed enough probable cause to necessitate a warrant it is highly advisable that you seek out a defense attorney immediately. Trying to avoid or run away from your situation will only make matters worse and you could face additional charges. If a warrant has been issued or if a warrant application hearing is to be held in order to obtain a warrant for your arrest or in order to search through your property, you must take active steps to defend your interests.
