Denver Colorado Warrants Lawyer

When a Defendant does not appear in court as scheduled, the court will typically issue a bench warrant for the Defendant’s failure to appear.

If the bench warrant stems from a traffic violation, the warrant (OJW) will cause a hold on the person’s driver’s license at the Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Consequently, the person’s driver’s license will be suspended if the warrant is not immediately satisfied.

Often times these warrants can be “quashed” or “vacated” with the assistance of vigilant counsel who files a motion to quash the warrant. Depending upon the facts and circumstances of the particular case and the jurisdiction, the court may or may not grant the request to quash the warrant.

Out-of-state drivers often encounter problems with warrants from unresolved traffic tickets in Colorado when they go to renew their driver’s licenses in their home state. Their home state will typically notify them that they have a “hold” on their license from Colorado as reported on the “national list”. If they are on the national list, their home state will typically not renew their driver’s license.

If the warrant is quashed, a driver may or may not be required to appear in court. Some cases may be resolved upon the appearance of an attorney with or without a telephone appearance by the defendant. Once the warrant is quashed, the OJW fee may be paid and a driver can immediately reinstate his/her driver’ license after fulfilling the reinstatement process at DMV.

Some non-traffic warrants may also be quashed depending upon the jurisdiction, charge, and facts of the particular case. Examples of these warrants include a warrant for failure to comply with probation, a warrant for failure to pay court fines and costs, and a warrant for failure to comply with conditions of bond or violating conditions of bond. If an attorney is successful in vacating or quashing the warrant in a non-traffic case, the defendant will not have to be arrested and taken into custody and thereafter post a bond. Depending upon the facts and circumstances of the particular case, a defendant’s appearance may also be waived with the assistance of a lawyer in some non-traffic cases.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda

"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve

"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
