• Bail Bonds/Pre-trial Release

  • If your friend or loved one is in jail, your utmost priority is securing their freedom. The act of bailing someone out of jail is done so by obtaining a bond. Typically, bail bonds companies front or loan the necessary monies in exchange for a promise of funds, an additional fee and/or assets.

    Aside from the fact that no one wants to be in jail, criminal defendants have a much greater chance at contributing to the defense of their case outside of those four walls. Many of those accused are the sole financial providers for their families, or they have dependants to consider. Sometimes a defendant stands the chance of losing their job if they are not released in time for their next shift.    

    Judges take several factors into account when determining the release of an alleged offender. Criminal history, and community ties are often examined. More importantly, the Court evaluates the potential flight risk of the individual in question.

    Sometimes defendants are given unreasonable bonds, and seek an attorney that can follow the necessary legal steps to have said bond reduced to a fair or obtainable amount. Other times, defendants are not granted bonds at all, and are in desperate need of counsel that may represent their needs and character with the utmost skill.
