Depending on the circumstances, it might be possible. You should contact counsel and discuss your particular situation with the lawyer.

Whether a lawyer can handle your case without you having to come back to court depends on a variety of factors - the charge, the judge and the prosecutor. Generally, the less serious the charge (traffic ticket) the greater chance the attorney can handle the case without you coming to court. Regardless, warrants have a nasty habit of popping up at the worst time. If you have an outstanding warrant, you need to talk with and hire an attorney very soon.
The other attorneys are correct. One more thing, if this warrant is out of Douglas Co., I would certainly contact a lawyer who is very familiar w the system there.
Generally speaking the answer is yes. This depends on the charges, and the jurisdiction.
