Bail Bonds and Arrest Warrants

At my criminal defense law firm, I not only represent clients in court, I help long before the court date. I provide guidance, advice, and resources if you or a family member have been arrested – specifically, help with a Bail Bond or Arrest Warrant in Walton 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 you live in another state, I can help.

I Will Help You Resolve Your Florida 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 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.

Perhaps more important, I will check to see if there is a bond on your 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 someone to help you arrange bail, I have a very good resource I can recommend. This bond company helps people who have been arrested in Destin, Niceville, Defuniak Springs, and Walton County. And this company is extremely effective at what they do.

Not too long ago, this company helped me with a client from out of town who was looking at some serious charges. They came to my office where they met with my client, finished all the paperwork, then accompanied my client to turn herself in and post bond.

The entire process took less than 30 minutes and the warrant was resolved. My client could stop looking over her shoulder – and stop worrying.

Information About Bail Bonds and Warrants in Florida

Bail Bonds

A bail bond can be obtained if the Judge who signed the arrest warrant approved a bond being set. Typically, you have to post 10% of the total amount with a bail bondsmen. Paying this amount is a promise that the client will appear on all of his or her court dates. Of course, if you also hire a Destin criminal defense attorney, you will not have to appear personally for all of your court hearings. Your bond will be satisfied if I attend some of your hearings for you.

Arrest Warrants

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

Either way, if you think there is even a small chance there is a warrant against you, call me and get some peace of mind – there is no charge for speaking with me. I can easily check to see if there is a warrant against you.

Additionally, an arrest warrant can also be issued against you if you fail to appear in court. There is not typically a 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. It’s possible that I can negotiate a bond before you get picked up or decide to turn yourself in. That way, you can turn yourself in, post bond, and be on your way.

Don’t Get Picked Up or Arrested While You’re With Your Family. Call a Destin Walton County Bail Bond Attorney right away at 850-654-6097.

Client Reviews

When a fun spring break trip to Florida turned into a nightmare, Brandy Merrifield was there for me every step of the way. I talked to several firms the day our group received tickets, and Brandy was by the far the most understanding and informative about my options. She handled my entire case by phone or email while I was back home in Texas, and put up with tons of questions from a clueless college student. I now have a clean record and am confident about applying for jobs after graduation. I cannot thank Flaherty Defense Firm enough.
