What to Do if You have a Warrant?

Just a word about warrants. You know, what should you do when you find out that there's a warrant for your arrest?

I know that you've got to turn yourself in but, also, and I know this sounds like, well, never ask a barber if you need a haircut--but--you really do need to talk to an attorney.

There are some things we can do before you turn yourself in.

The first thing is, can we resolve this thing before you hit a jail cell? Because that makes you look better. If you're going to be arrested for some theft and we can go make these people whole again, before you even hit a jail cell.

And, this "misunderstanding" that we know it is, rather than looking like some criminal act--that's going to help your case down the road.

Everything we do prior to that warrant being served that can help the situation is going to lessen your sentence. Or, possibly sometimes even get the warrant dismissed. So, I know you've got to turn yourself in. I get that. But you also need to talk to an attorney and make sure that everything is in order and that everything has been done that should be done on your behalf before you go turn yourself in.

That's the best game plan I can tell you to do. So, get to it.

Client Reviews
"I can not express better my gratitude to John Guidry. His customer service exceeded my expectations. He always listened to my needs and my case and he explained in details every options I have and the steps to take. He maintained full communication with me and answered to my calls in less than five minutes. It was worth every single penny. I highly recommend this lawyer." J.P.
"I spoke to a couple of attorney's before speaking to John and I knew right away he was the attorney I would hire. He is very professional and a very caring individual. He is up front about the cost of service, with no surprises. I am in my late 50's and was never in trouble with the law and he made me feel very comfortable and reassured me of a positive outcome.....which it was. I highly recommend The Law Firm of John Guidry II." M.C.
"John Guidry worked closely with my family over a trivial matter. However, he treated it like it was the only case on his plate. He was kind, patient, professional, and just an excellent person to have on our side. While we reached out to him over a year ago, we are still constantly in contact with him. He makes sure there is no question left unanswered and personally reaches out to you himself whenever he possibly can. Very grateful for you, John!" K.P.
