Consequences of Failure to Appear

Failing to properly resolve a traffic ticket or a criminal charge will result in a limited amount of time to resolve the issue before the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) revokes your license. If the situation is not resolved in a proper amount of time, the court will add a late fee in addition to the original fines.

Failure to appear can be classified as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the situation. You can even be charged for contempt of court. Regardless of whether you failed to appear for a criminal or civil court date, you can be heavily penalized. As the defendant of a case, you will need aggressive legal guidance.

There are measures that can be taken to resolve the additional charges you face. Avoid a license suspension and further penalties by calling us for aggressive defense.
