The Scenario: A New York resident had no idea there was a warrant out for her arrest in Virginia. On her way back into town, she was detained at JFK Airport, then sent to criminal court, where a judge ordered her held without bail. That’s when her parents hired us.
The Results: We filed a writ (motion for release) with a higher-level judge to have our client released on bail. In spite of the District Attorney’s vehement opposition, the court granted the writ, freeing our client to return to Virginia to fight her case.
