Question: I have was arrested for a DUI in Sherman Oaks and had a Van Nuys DUI Court hearing that I didn’t go to. Is there a warrant for my arrest? what should I do?

Answer: If you missed your arraignment date for a DUI and were not represented by an attorney at that hearing, it is likely that the Van Nuys Court issued a bench warrant for your arrest. Generally, the warrant needs to be addressed at Court to be recalled and quashed. I would recommend having an attorney handle this matter (as well as your DUI case). DUI charges are serious, and having a warrant out for a failure to appear further complicates the matter and increases potential consequences.
