Failure to Appear Lawyers in Charlotte

Serving Clients across Mecklenburg County

The attorneys at Jetton & Meredith represent people who have missed their court date and had a failure to appear or order for arrest issued in their case. Many offenses are waivable.*

This means that your appearance in court may not be required and your attorney can appear on your behalf. If your case requires you to be present and you fail to come to court, it may result in a warrant for your arrest or suspension of your driver’s license.

Failure to Appear Fees in North Carolina

Also, each case where you fail to appear (FTA) carries an FTA fee. In many cases, the attorneys at Jetton & Meredith can ask the judge to strike or eliminate those fees. Additionally, if you have missed your court date, our attorneys can often add the case back on for you and have your order for arrest stricken.*

If you are facing Failure to Appear (FTA) or Order for Arrest (OFA) charges, it is important to hire an attorney. Our failure to appear lawyers in Charlotte welcome the opportunity to assist you and help you understand these charges.
