Texas Jail Release Attorney

If you or a loved one has been arrested, The Law Offices of Carl David Ceder, can help assist you with obtaining a release from jail. One has a few options when considering how to go about with a getting someone released from custody.  A cash bond can be posted , a bond from a professional bail bonding company can help facilitate the release, or you can possibly have a lawyer post an attorney surety bond.  There are pros and cons for each, and the exact nature of which you choose will be based on those specific facts and circumstances.

After an arrest, typically, the exact nature of the charge will soon be reviewed by a magistrate judge who will dictate in what amount to set bail. This judge will look into the individual's background to see if they have a prior criminal record, whether they deem the person to be a flight risk, and how severe (and in what nature) the charges are. Judges ultimately do not want those to be released who may be a danger to the community at large. Once all of these factors hahase been weighed and accounted for, the bond amount will then be set.

However, it should be noted, that in Dallas and Collin counties, arrests made after hours, weekends/holidays, and in certain municipal jails, one may be able to be released via something referred to as a "Writ Bond." A writ bond can bypass the need to see a Judge before being released. However, one may be required to go and see a Judge later to see if any specific bond conditions need be set.

The Law Offices of Carl David Ceder can help guide you through what your options are via a jail release. They are further defined as follows:

  • Cash Bond - You can post a cash bond yourself if a bail amount has already been set. The benefit of utilizing this route is that you will get all of your money returned once the case has been disposed of. However, at times this can be a cumbersome task for people, as sometimes the process to obtain it can be a bit confusing. Plus, it is probably the most time-consuming of all three of these options, so if getting the fastest release possible is a priority, this likely isn't the best avenue to employ. Also, the amount needed may be more than an individual may have at their disposal for the posting of the bond. 
  • Professional Bail Bond Company - The majority of individuals utilize the services of a professional bail bonding company. If you one employs this avenue, the professional bail bonding company will post the bail amount to secure the release. However, you will have to come up with non-refundable a percentage upfront, which is usually 10%), though this amount can vary based on the bail bond company, and/or the seriousness or complexity of the charge. In addition, you will be tied to them until the conclusion of your case, and they may require many phone calls and other restrictions. The Law Offices of Carl David Ceder has worked with many professional bail bond companies throughout the years, and can you select one that will act in a professional and courteous manner when you deal with them about the case.
  • Attorney Surety Bond - One can utilize this route, in certain scenarios, is when you agree to hire the jail release attorney to be your legal counsel for the case related to the case you have been charged with. The amount paid, in essence, is utilized as a "down payment" for legal services rendered and to secure the services of the attorney with representation of the case. This can save you a significant amount of money, because you invariably will not be paying twice to two entities (once to the professional bail bondsman, and again to an attorney when seeking legal counsel).
