Help! I Have a Case, What Do I Do?
The first thing most people want to do when they find out there is a warrant for their arrest is post a Bail Bond.
This will withdraw the warrant so there is no arrest.
Before the first court setting, it is best to hire an attorney. If a defendant is truly indigent, an attorney can be "appointed" by the judge to represent the defendant. There is a wide variety of fees for attorneys and some attornies will give payment terms. Try to get an attorney with a good reputation and that you feel comfortable with. Do not get one that is too cheap, you would probably be better off with a court appointed attorney. See: Board Certified attorneys.
Attornies will usually set fees based upon the seriousness and complexity of the case. They can range from a few hundred dollars for a simple Misdemeanor to many thousands for a serious felony. Here is a list of Punishments. Generally, the more punishment, the more serious a case is and will demand a higher attorney fee.
