Q. I've missed my court date and I believe there's a warrant out I'd like to get this taken care of asap who could help
A: Contact an attorney first thing in the morning! He or she may be able to get this matter recalendared prior to the warrant being served on you. Considering it’s a traffic matter, it may be a case that can be handled with a waiver of your Appearance.

Thanks
