Failure to show up in court on your scheduled day may result in a bench warrant. This is usually referred to as a Failure to Appear or FTA. Also, if you received a traffic citation, or were arrested on other charges, and then failed to appear on your scheduled court date, most likely the court has issued a warrant for your arrest. An experienced bench warrant lawyer can file a motion and request that the warrant be withdrawn.

MD Code §5-212

Further, one needs to understand that if you have an active warrant for your arrest, and you come into contact with a police officer who puts your name into a data base, you could be arrested and held until your situation is resolved.


Most of the time, a bench warrant lawyer can do this without the appearance of the client.
