Bail Information

If bail has not been posted because you cannot afford it, we can argue for the court to immediately lower bail, or to lower bail at the first or next court appearance. We can assist with bail and release 24/7. It may make sense to have bail reduced before posting, potentially saving a lot of money. We can help you to get your bail bond premium reduced from 10% to as little as 7%. We can also help you work out bail bond premium payment plans.
