Bench Warrants

Bench Warrants Lawyer in Nassau County

If you have a bench warrant out for your arrest in Nassau County or any county in New York, you basically have three options:

  • Do nothing and live each day looking over your shoulder in fear of arrest.
  • Turn yourself in without the advice of a criminal defense attorney.
  • Consult with an experienced lawyer to ensure your rights are protected when you come forward.

The worst thing you can do is nothing. Not only does running from the law cause anxiety and stress, when the police finally catch up with you, you can face greater penalties than if you come forward on your own accord. Some people mistakenly think that law enforcement officials won’t waste their time hunting down people with bench warrants. This is simply not true. Police routinely do warrant sweeps, especially for high-level felonies such as sexual offenses. But they also do sweeps for misdemeanor warrants, so it is only a matter of time.

Once you realize that the best option is to turn yourself in, it may seem like a good idea to do so on your own, in order to save the cost associated with hiring a criminal defense attorney. This is not a smart idea. The level of legal protection offered by a lawyer can actually save your money and your freedom in the long run.

The smartest thing you can do is to consult with a lawyer before proceeding.
