Okaloosa County Bail Bonds and Arrest Warrants

My job as a criminal defense attorney is to not only help people when they get to court but to help them long before they’re scheduled to be in court. I provide guidance, advice, and resources if you or a family member has been arrested – specifically, help with a Bail Bond or Arrest Warrant in Okaloosa County.

If you know there is a warrant out there hanging over your head, I can help you relieve some of the stress. If you are afraid of getting arrested on your Florida warrant while you’re with your family or at work, or if you live in another state and your family member was arrested in Florida, Flaherty Defense Firm can help.

I Will Help You Resolve Your Okaloosa County Bail Bond or Arrest Warrant Problem

If you were involved in an incident where charges might be filed against you, there is a good chance there is an active warrant against you right now. What this means is that even if you are stopped for a minor traffic violation, even in another state, you will be arrested and detained. If you live in another state, you will probably be arrested and held pending your extradition to Florida.

There is a better way. Just call me and I will verify whether there is a warrant against you. More importantly, I will verify whether there is a bond on the warrant.

What does this mean? If there is a bond on the warrant, I can arrange for you to turn yourself in, do some paperwork, post bond, and you can walk out without spending one minute in jail. I will be there with you every step of the way.

Need a Recommendation For a Good Bail Bond Company?

If you need to arrange bail, I can recommend a very good bail bond company that helps clients in Okaloosa County. This company is very good at what they do, and they take care of our clients.

Recently, they helped me with an out-of-town client facing very serious charges. They met with my client, completed all of the paperwork, and then went with him to turn himself in and post bond.

The whole process took half an hour and the warrant was resolved. My client was able to stop looking over his shoulder and worrying.

Information about Bail Bonds in Okaloosa County

An individual can get a bail bond if the Judge who signed the arrest warrant approved it. Typically, you have to post 10% of the total amount with a bail bondsman. Paying this amount is a promise that the client will appear on all of his or her court dates. Keep in mind, though, that if you hire a criminal defense attorney, you won’t have to appear in person for all of your court hearings. I can attend some of them for you, and this will satisfy your bond.

Check and See if You Have an Arrest Warrant

An arrest warrant is also referred to as a capias. An arrest warrant may be issued against you if you were involved in an incident but weren’t arrested right away. Typically, this happens when the police need to continue their investigation before making a decision about whether to file charges.

In any case, if you think there is even the smallest chance that there is a warrant against you in Okaloosa County, call me and get some peace of mind–there is no charge for speaking with me. I would be happy to check whether you have a warrant.

You should also know that if you don’t appear at one of your court hearings, a warrant will be issued against you. There is usually no bond with this kind of warrant so, as you can see, this is a more serious situation. If you missed a court hearing, I encourage you to call me immediately. I may be able to negotiate a bond for you before you turn yourself in or get picked up. That way, you can turn yourself in, post bond, and be on your way.
