Should I turn myself in on a warrant?

I'm really nervous about the idea of turning myself in but I've kind of been dodging the cops for a while now. If I go to an attorney first, can they help make sure I don't get punished as harshly? I don't want to spend time in jail.

    You will be spending time in jail on the warrant. The question is how long. An attorney typically can help reduce the time.

    If you don't turn yourself in, you run the risk that you will be picked up by the police anyway, and you will have to post the bail or sit in jail until your court appearance.

    Definitely turn yourself in. If arrested, the judge will be less likely to impose a reasonable bond, and you will probably be locked up for a long period. If you turn yourself in, definitely retain a lawyer to appear with you when you turn yourself in, and when you appear before the judge or magistrate.
