Local Traffic Tickets
Lewisville Arrest Warrants
I'm attorney Todd E. Tkach. Our law practice includes personal injury, including car wrecks and criminal defense, including traffic citations. Lifting traffic warrants is a large part of our traffic ticket practice, including lifting Lewisville arrest warrants. Whether you simply forgot to take care of a recent Lewisville traffic ticket before the deadline passed, or you have outstanding warrants from months, or years ago, we can lift them all. Having an outstanding Lewisville arrest warrant is a problem that won't go away unless you take some action.
Outstanding warrants are big problems, because you remain subject to arrest at any time until they are resolved. Fortunately, it's a problem that is easy to solve with the help of an experienced attorney. For a one time, low flat fee, we can post an attorney bond to lift your Lewisville arrest warrant and set your case for a court hearing.
If you have outstanding Lewisville arrest warrants, you essentially have 4 choices to solve the problem. But 3 of them are not good. First, you can do nothing and eventually get arrested and taken to jail. You could choose to stay in jail until the judge of the Court decides that you have been there long enough to satisfy your outstanding fine amount. For most people, that's not a good option for a warrant. Second, you could go to the court and pay off your ticket, which includes a high fine, warrant fees, and perhaps collection fees. That's probably the most expensive option you can choose. You're paying a high fine and warrant and collection fees, And, you are convicted of the citation, which can have long-term financial consequences. The third option for Lewisville arrest warrants is to post a cash bond yourself. But, that can also be problematic, because the amount of the cash bond will be the highest fine amount, plus an additional cash amount for the warrant fee and court costs. Those amounts for fine, court costs and fees will be several hundred dollars, at a minimum, and could exceed a thousand dollars. The Court holds that cash until you resolve your underlying citation, which could take several months. The fourth option is the best choice: hire Todd E. Tkach and pay him a low one-time flat fee to lift the Lewisville arrest warrant, set your case for a hearing, meet with the prosecutor, fight for a dismissal, fine reduction and a clean driving record.

Types of Lewisville Arrest Warrants
Generally, there are two types of Lewisville arrest warrants for municipal citations; Alias warrants and Capias warrants:
Lewisville Alias 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 arrest 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 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.
Lewisville Capias Warrants
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.
Lewisville Arrest 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 Lewisville arrest warrant roundups. What is a Lewisville arrest warrant roundup? This is when cities and jurisdictions devise and implement plans to actively pursue the arrest of anyone who has outstanding arrest warrants for traffic citations. However, some jurisdictions don’t bother with arrest warrant roundups, but rather have a year –round program to actively arrest anyone with outstanding arrest 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 Lewisville arrest warrants who were arrested during routine traffic stops, at work or at home. Law enforcement officers do not discriminate when it comes to outstanding arrest warrants. They will show up at the homes and/or work places of anyone who has outstanding Lewisville arrest 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. 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.
