Is there any way to file a motion for relief from a failure to appear judgment?

Would this salvage my $3,000 I put down for bail? I was not mailed a court date and i have been pushed out several times.

The best way to try and resolve the failure to appear situation in the criminal matter that you have writte about is to retain a criminal defense attorney to file the necessary motion seeking to set aside the default and setting a hearing date for trial of your matter or at least a settlement conference.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved.
