Unfortunately, the terms of service on JustAnswer forbid a lawyer to represent a customer on an outside case. We're also not able to refer to a particular lawyer or law firm. So I cannot represent you.
Judges dislike warrants more than anything on earth and in the eyes of the court, a person with a warrant is a fugitive from justice
. Many judges are inclined to just shoot from the hip, not listen to what you may have to say and put you in jail for a couple of days while the ADA looks for his file and retrieves it from archives.
While the judge may not want to show you personally any courtesy, he will nevertheless listen to what your lawyer has to say. So the best person to make an argument of this kind is a lawyer, especially since it is a legal argument, your having been in the custody and control of the state.
I can direct you to a referral service that lawyers themselves use when they need to consult with an attorney in a strange town or state. The New York State Bar Association's Lawyer referral service
is one such place. Their $35 referral fee includes a free half hour with the lawyer. If you want to ttry a commercial service, Martindale.com
has been around for a long time and is highly respected. Many of their lawyers are peer and client rated which some folks find useful.
