Flower Mound Municipal Court Warrant
Has a Flower Mound municipal court warrant been issued for your arrest? If so, you run the risk of being picked up and taken to jail at any time! Imagine being carted out of your place of work for an unpaid traffic ticket. Simple daily tasks like running to the grocery store come with the threat of a major life disruption when you’ve got a warrant out for you. Let us help. At the Law Office of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. Flower Mound municipal court warrants are no problem for our experienced attorneys.
When an officer issues you a traffic ticket, whether it be for speeding or failure to yield, you only have a set amount of days to respond. You must either fork over your hard earned money or set up a court hearing. If you’ve got a Flower Mound municipal court warrant out for your arrest currently, you failed to do either and now you’ve got an even bigger problem. Once a warrant has been issued, you have two options: 1) pay the highest fine possible for the citation; or 2) post a cash bond equal to the maximum fine of the ticket PLUS court costs. With my years of experience and extensive understanding of the Texas Transportation Code, I would never advise my clients to do either. Why?
If you simply pay the ticket, not only are you paying the largest sum possible for the offense, you are accepting a conviction on your driving record, which can be extremely problematic in the long run. The latter option of posting a cash bond also comes with a slew of issues, the most inconvenient being that the court will hold onto your money (upwards of several hundred dollars) until your case is resolved. Do you have extra cash lying around that you want to tie up in the Flower Mound municipal court? Most don’t.
There’s a better way. Hold on to your hard earned money and protect your driving record. For pennies on the dollar you can hire a skilled attorney at the Law Office of Todd E. Tkach, P.C. to handle your Flower Mound municipal court warrant. We’ll take over immediately, ensuring that a warrant is no longer out for your arrest.

Types of Flower Mound municipal court warrants
Generally, there are two types of Flower Mound municipal court warrants for 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 Flower Mound municipal court 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 Flower Mound municipal court 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.
Flower Mound Municipal Court Warrant Roundups
From time to time, anywhere from two (2) to four (4) times per year, most cities and municipalities in the Dallas and Ft. Worth metroplex conduct warrant roundups. What is a warrant roundup? This is when cities and jurisdictions devise and implement plans to actively pursue the arrest of anyone who has outstanding warrants for 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 Flower Mound municipal court warrants who were arrested during routine traffic stops, at work or at home. Law enforcement officers do not discriminate when it comes to outstanding warrants. They will show up at the homes and/or work places of anyone who has outstanding Flower Mound municipal court warrants, and arrest them. Don’t let this happen to you!

Getting Yourself Arrested for a Ticket 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.
