How Do I Find Out if I Have a Warrant?
Under Every Warrant Is an Underlying Criminal Issue
Many people are completely unaware they have a bench warrant out for their arrest. But how do I find out if I have a warrant? You should contact your local clerk of court (in any relevant counties you may believe there is a warrant out for your arrest). You can also look at the Utah.gov website and search under your name. You can also call the Utah BIC (Bureau of Criminal Investigation) 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 801-965-4445.
It is critical you find out this information if there is a warrant out for your arrest. This is because every warrant has an underlying charge or charges that must be defended.

Recalling a Warrant
Once you find out you have a warrant, you must pay the bail amount in full in order to get it recalled. Once your warrant is recalled, the underlying criminal issue must be addressed. I represent my clients in all types of criminal matters, including:
- Juvenile offenses — theft, assault, sex crimes and delinquency
- Violent crime charges — murder, assault, domestic violence and gun charges
- Sex offenses — rape, assault of a child, illegal pornography and Internet offenses
- Theft and fraud — shoplifting, fraud and white collar crimes
- Federal offenses — drug charges, white collar crimes and more
