Tampa Warrants Lawyer

If you are facing an arrest warrant, issued here in Florida or another state, we strongly advise you to be proactive. It is in your own best interest to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Do not wait for the police to come to your front door or your place of work and take you away in handcuffs. By calling a Tampa warrants lawyer today, you give yourself the best chance at either having the charges dismissed or reduced, or at the very least achieving a beneficial plea deal that minimizes your penalties. Call a Tampa warrants lawyer today at the Matassini Law Firm, P.A. before it is too late.

Warrants We Handle 

  • Warrants filed by Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office alleging probable cause
  • Warrants obtained by law enforcement alleging probable cause
  • Bench warrants for failure to appear (FTA) in court
  • Bench warrants for failure to pay a fine
  • Warrants for violation of probation (VOP)
  • Warrants issued out of county or out of state (Fugitive from Justice Warrants)

What an Attorney Can Offer

If you have a warrant out for your arrest, the worst possible thing you can do is evade police, ignore it, or attempt to flee out of state. Sooner or later (likely sooner), you will be apprehended by law enforcement. But before heading down to the police station, it is advisable to contact an attorney. For example, if the warrant arrived via the mail from a bond company allowing  for self-arrest, contacting an attorney can help you negotiate a surrender, as opposed to having the police arrest you whenever they find you. If the warrant was for failure to appear in court or a violation of probation, you must appear before a judge prior to bond being set. By contacting an attorney beforehand, you will have an advantage for when it comes time to being released (we can provide invaluable support effecting a release as soon as possible). In some cases, if a bench warrant was issued by the court, an attorney may be able to file a motion to withdraw, enabling you to appear in court without an arrest. In total, services a Tampa warrant lawyer can provide include:

  • Ensuring that you actually have an outstanding warrant
  • Providing invaluable instruction on what steps to take next
  • Filing a motion to surrender
  • Determining the amount of bond required for release
  • Helping to clarify terms or method of surrender
  • Filing other motions on your behalf
  • Ensuring that you do not self-incriminate
  • Keeping you from giving unnecessary information to interrogatories or prosecutors
  • Scheduling an emergency bond reduction and getting you released from custody
  • Representing you for the duration of your case

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
