Defense Counsel For Warrants, Arraignment And Bail
If you are sought on criminal charges, police could catch up to you at any time. You might be arrested in the middle of the night, at your place of work, or in a very public place. It doesn’t have to happen that way.The law office of Anaya-McKedy, P.C., in Colorado Springs provides full-service criminal defense counsel, including answering warrants, first appearances before a judge, and arranging or reducing bail. Call 719-227-0007 for a free consultation.
We practice mainly in courts of El Paso County and Teller County (Fourth Judicial District). Our clients include people living elsewhere in Colorado or out of state who have outstanding criminal warrants from this jurisdiction. Our attorneys can help get the arrest warrant quashed and arrange a date for you to appear before a judge.
For most misdemeanor warrants, one of our lawyers can appear in court on your behalf.
A felony warrant requires you to personally appear, but we can often convince the court not to take you into custody.
Arraignment, Bail Bonds And Bail Reduction
Our attorneys accompany clients to arraignments to hear the formal charges and enter a plea. With experience as both prosecutors and as defense lawyers, our attorneys can explain what is likely to happen in your specific case.
If the judge sets bail, you must post the bail amount or be taken into custody. If you do not have the money to secure your own release, we can connect you with a bail bondsman who will post a bond with the court on your behalf.
Some judges set an impossibly high bail to keep defendants in jail until trial, particularly in drug cases. This is a violation of the Eighth Amendment right against excessive bail — it cannot be more than necessary to prevent a defendant from fleeing before the case is over, or out of proportion to the alleged crime. Our attorneys have been successful in getting bail reduced to a reasonable amount.
