San Antonio Warrant Lawyer

Warrants are dangerous. In Texas, warrants can have devastating consequences, and are routinely issued without notice. Warrants are common after failing to appear in court, an at-large filing of a new criminal charge, or a violation of probation.

Warrants must be resolved quickly and carefully. TPL works diligently to swiftly resolve arrest warrants in the most discreet and painless way possible.

Texas Failure to Appear Warrant

Everyone charged with a criminal offense in Texas has a right to release from jail before court. Defendants are released by posting a cash Bond or Bail bond, and in some instances, through a Personal Recognizance (PR) Bond. However release is obtained, every defendant must agree to appear in court on a set date and time.

Failure to appear in court will result in the forfeiture of the bond and the issuance of a Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear or Bail Jumping.

  • What are the penalties for failure to appear? Failure to appear in Texas results in an arrest warrant and a new criminal charge, the punishment range falls anywhere between a Class C Misdemeanor and a Third Degree Felony, depending on the underlying charge.

Traffic Ticket Warrants in Texas

Traffic citations are an expensive inconvenience. However, if ignored, a simple speeding ticket can transform into a warrant, resulting in a surprise arrest at the worst possible moment.

  • How do you get rid of traffic ticket warrants? Take action. The safest and most efficient way to lift warrants associated with tickets in Texas is to contact an attorney immediately. This prevents arrest, and can lead to swift resolution, the restoration of driving privilege, and peace of mind. Start now.

Probation violations are critical matters that can have devastating consequences. Violating any term or condition of probation can result in the State filing a Motion to Revoke (MTR) probation. A simple violation can quickly turn into a permanent criminal conviction. Take no chance. If you have an MTR concern act now. Learn more.

    Trey is the man! I hired him because I had overheard a county court judge mentioning how awesome of an attorney he is, so if an endorsement from a judge won’t convince you then I’m not sure what will. I sure do hope I never find myself in a pickle ever again but if I do, I would hire Trey in a heartbeat. He’s honest, transparent, doesn’t beat around the bush, and will work tirelessly so that your clean record stays clean and unblemished. 5 stars, highly recommend!

    I recently hired Trey Porter Law to help our teenage daughter with a drug charge. In the state of Texas she was being charged as an adult which carried a much stiffer penalty. Trey is very responsive, helpful, knowledgeable and is always available to answer any questions or concerns via phone, text or email. He was able to negotiate on her behalf so it was a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Trey Porter Law.

    Mr Porter is the real deal. You get what you pay for these days. I know that from my personal business dealings. Attorney Trey Porter was no different.

    He was prompt, professional and poised. I was charged with DWI, and Mr Porter got the charge dismissed. I could not be more pleased or thankful. If you get a DWI, hire the best — hire Trey Porter.
