A Traffic Warrant in Las Vegas, Nevada is issued by a local judge or magistrate who is currently presiding over your active traffic ticket case. Once the judge issues a traffic warrant against you, it has the same effect as an arrest warrant, meaning any local police agency has the authority to arrest you on this traffic warrant and bring you before the judge. There are several reasons for which a judge will issue a traffic warrant against you, such as, missing a court appearance, failing to pay a fine, failing to complete community service or traffic school by a set date, or picking up new charges when you agreed to stay out of trouble as part of a formal or informal probation.

Troiano will work quickly to place a motion on the court’s docket and get you in front of the judge that issued your traffic warrant and have it quashed before you are picked up by the police at your home or work.
