FTA or Failure to Appear is a warrant issued by the Court for failing to appear at your court date. Life happens and sometimes we forget even something as important as a court date. If you've missed your court date then call our office today so we can assist you. Municipal Courts will usually allow a lawyer to do a bond on behalf of their clients. However if you don't hire a lawyer the bond could possibly be very expensive and if you fail to do it correctly you can still end up in handcuffs if you go to the court to deal with it yourself.
