Customer Question

Hi, I have been told that two magistrates court have issued a warrant for my arrest. I was told by my solicitor before hand because I have a medical condition and a certificate confirming i was too ill to travel for one date which the court was advised of,the second one was issued due to a clash of dates and I attended the crown court over the magistates court, of which the magistrates court were made aware but they also issued a warrant for my arrest. My solicitors have appealed against these esplaining the situation but these appeals have yet to work through the clerical system apparently. i have now been told that i need to instruct a barrister which is going to cost£5k to appeal these in the high court. I dont have @£5k readily available and was only advised this today.
What should i do? is there any way of speeding up the appeal process or is instructing a barrister the only route i can take
