Local Traffic Tickets
Dallas County Warrant
We are Dallas County warrant lawyers. If you have an outstanding traffic ticket warrant, we can post an attorney bond to lift (remove) the county warrant for your arrest and then seek to fully resolve your underlying traffic ticket with the best possible outcome.
We serve all Dallas County courts and justice of the peace courts in Dallas County. If you received a ticket from a Texas DPS officer, county sheriff, county constable or DART police, our count of jurisdiction will be in one of the Dallas County courts.
You only have 21 days from the date you receive a traffic ticket to either pay it or set it for a court hearing. If you don’t, a Dallas County warrant for your arrest will be issued. With an outstanding warrant, you could be arrested at any time and taken to jail. Maybe you forgot to pay a recent traffic ticket, or maybe you have outstanding warrants from tickets you receive months or even years ago. It makes no difference, we can lift them all. At the Law Office of Todd E. Tkach, we represent people who have received traffic tickets in any jurisdiction in North Texas. Call us now for your free consultation on how we can lift your Dallas County warrants.
If you currently have one or more outstanding Dallas County warrants, you cannot resolve the underlying traffic ticket, unless you do one of the following things. First, you could do nothing and just wait to be arrested. Once arrested, you could just sit in jail to “sit-out” your past due fines. They usually require at least one day for each $100.00 of outstanding fines. This is usually not the option of choice, even for the most resilient of people. You could also just pay the outstanding fines and warrant fees. The problem with that option is that it results in a conviction of the charge, goes on your permanent driving record, and can have long-term financial consequences. You could also post your own cash bond. The problem is that the cash required will likely be several hundred dollars and could exceed a thousand dollars. Additionally, the Court holds your cash until you resolve your underlying traffic ticket in court. If you fail to appear for court, you forfeit your cash.
The best option is this: Keep your cash and protect your driving record! For a low, one-time flat fee, hire attorney, Todd E. Tkach to post an attorney bond, lift the Dallas County warrant for your arrest, set your case for a pretrial hearing, meet with the prosecutor, negotiate the best possible result, plea your case in front of the judge and promptly notify you of the result.
Types of Dallas County warrants
Generally, there are two types of Dallas County warrants for municipal citations; Alias warrants and Capias warrants:
Alias warrants go into effect after you receive a traffic citation if before your appearance date, you fail to either: 1) pay your traffic citation; or 2) request a court hearing. After the Dallas County warrant is issued, if you are stopped, for any reason, you are subject to arrest. Are you in this situation now? Do you have outstanding Alias warrants? Call attorney Todd E. Tkach now! We can post an attorney bond to lift the Dallas County warrant for your arrest and set your case for hearing. At the hearing, we strive for a dismissal of the charge(s) against you. If a dismissal can’t be obtained, we’ll aggressively negotiate to obtain the best possible result for you.
Capias warrants are issued when you fail to comply with a plea agreement that you entered into regarding a previous citation. It may be that you agreed to pay a certain fine within a certain time and to not get any other traffic citations within a certain time period. Failure to comply with any part of that agreement will result in a Capias warrant being issued for your arrest. In this situation, it’s probably too late for us to be able to help. You must either pay the fine or remain subject to arrest at any time.
Dallas County Warrant Roundups
From time to time, anywhere from two (2) to four (4) times per year, most cities, counties and municipalities in the Dallas and Ft. Worth metroplex conduct warrant roundups. What is a warrant roundup? This is when local jurisdictions devise and implement plans to actively pursue the arrest of anyone who has outstanding warrants for unpaid traffic citations. However, some jurisdictions don’t bother with warrant roundups, but rather have a year-round program to actively arrest anyone with outstanding warrants from that jurisdiction. If you think this can’t happen to you, think again! Many times, we have posted attorney bonds to bail people out of jail who had outstanding Dallas County warrants who were arrested during routine traffic stops, at work or at home. Law enforcement officers do not discriminate when it comes to outstanding Dallas County warrants. They will show up at the homes and/or work places of anyone who has outstanding warrants and arrest them. Don’t let this happen to you!

Getting Yourself Arrested for a Dallas County warrant Is Expensive
Getting arrested on an outstanding warrant for an unpaid ticket is the most expensive way to resolve your traffic ticket! First, you will have to bond yourself out of jails with a cash bond for the full amount owed. Second, you will face the highest amount of the fine, known as the "window rate." Thirdly, you will face additional fees for court costs and the collection expense of arresting you. Fourth, if you were pulled over while driving and arrested, your car might be impounded and you might face towing and impound fees to get your car back. Finally, you could also face significant State of Texas surcharges. Plus, you will loose more money from the resulting time away from work, plus the embarrassment of being arrested. This is the worst and most expensive of all possible outcomes.
If you have one or more outstanding warrants for your arrest for unpaid traffic tickets, there are much more favorable outcomes possible that will cost less and eliminate additional the hassle.
