Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist. If a warrant for your arrest has been issued, then it is going to remain outstanding until you are brought in/arrested under the warrant......and a lawyer cannot prevent that from happening. HOWEVER, a lawyer can work with the sheriff's office/police office to turn yourself in, get booked, bond right back out until your court date.
Expert:  Roger replied 6 months ago.
Thus, you can likely work things out where you never actually have to sit in jail, but you're going to have to go through turning yourself in on the warrant/being arrested because that's just part of the warrant process.
