I have two failure to appear warrants for courts dates that were for driving on a suspended license. I now have everything taken care of so that I can reinstate my license and I wanted to do that before I turn myself in so I will have my license when I go in front of the judge. One of the warrants is a no bond warrant so I can just turn myself in and bond out. I have to go in front of judge
Sure. You might get arrested on the way there or on your way home. Why not retain an attorney and handle the warrants? They have a way of rearing their ugly heads at the worst possible time--like during Thanksgiving Dinner.

You should hire an attorney prior to turning yourself in. An attorney can try to negotiate a deal so maybe you don't have to go to jail on your warrants. This is not something your should try to tackle on your own. Good luck to you!
The answer above is not legal advice nor establishes an attorney-client relationship between you and J & J Law Firm, PA. Please consult with a local lawyer in your area to obtain confidential legal advice based on your specific situation and the facts in your case.
You really should speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney before you go to the DMV or turn yourself in. Having a no bond warrant for failure to appear leaves too many variables open and I would hate for you to be arrested in a public place, possibly in front of your friends or family. An attorney can help you with both issues, the DMV and the warrant. There is no guarantee the Judge will remove the warrant just because you have a new valid DL, although its much more likely when you have an attorney by your side to advocate on your behalf.
