If an arrest warrant has been issued against you for a felony offense, you face immediate arrest. Law enforcement may come to your home or your workplace, looking to arrest you. Once you are taken into custody, it is likely that bail will be set, rather than you qualifying for a release on your own recognizance (without bail being necessary). However, early intervention by a skilled attorney may mean that you can avoid an embarrassing arrest in front of your friends and family. An attorney may also be able to negotiate to lower the amount of bail that is due, helping you secure a release from custody in a more timely manner.
