If you or a loved one have recently been arrested, David Golden Law Offices can help you get out of jail and begin building an aggressive defense on your behalf. In the unfortunate event that you or someone you know finds themselves in jail, your number one priority will be finding a way to get out. One way of doing this is by paying a fee to the court known as a bail bond. The amount varies depending on the severity of the crime, your past criminal record, and the likelihood you would try to leave town, but is typically a large amount of money most people cannot afford. If you cannot pay your bail bond in full out of your own pocket, you can get the funds through a third-party. After paying the bail bond, the court holds on to the money as collateral to ensure you return to court at your assigned time for a hearing or trial.
Facing criminal charges, no matter how severe, can be an extremely serious and stressful time in your life. Bail bonds can be in the tens of thousands of dollars, and while the money is returned after the completion of your case, finding the money upfront can seem like an insurmountable task. Fortunately, you don’t have to face this time alone. The St. Lucie criminal defense attorneys at David Golden P.A. can guide you through this time and help you fight these criminal charges every step of the way. For more information about your legal rights and options, contact us today at 772-336-457 and schedule a free consultation.
How to Get a Bail Bond
The time between your arrest and trial can be weeks, and you don’t want to spend that time in a holding cell. If you cannot personally pay your bail bond in full, there are a few ways to get one including:
- Licensed bail bond agency
- Friend or family member
- Hire a criminal defense attorney
In all likelihood, your bail is too high for your family or friends to pay on their own. Getting a bond through a bail bond agency may be convenient, but it can be very costly because not only do you have to pay them a fee for the bail bond, but you also need an attorney to represent you.
The best option is to contact a criminal lawyer. By contacting a criminal attorney to pay your bail bond, you can get out of jail much quicker and cheaper because the bail will be attached to the attorney fees, so you don’t have to waste money on a bail bondsman who has no interest in you or your case. The attorney will then also help represent you in your defense.
