What Is A Bail Bond?
Never attend a bail hearing without legal representation to fight for the opportunity to be free on your own recognizance. Sometimes, the judge will not allow this and will insist that the accused individual post bail if they wish to be free prior to the trial. With our attorneys assisting with both the bail hearing and the bail bond, you can avoid paying double. There will be no need to seek out a bail bondsman. Our defense lawyers can assist with both aspects of the case. Why hire the Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC?

Posting Bail After A DWI Arrest
When facing a DWI, it is often necessary to post bail, particularly in the more serious offenses. The cost of posting bail is expensive, and when it is a felony DWI charge, the cost of bail could prevent the individual from remaining free while working on the defense of the charge. If bail is set for an individual in custody, however, they will likely need to retain the services of a bail bondsman. In many cases, an attorney will also act as a bondsman by retaining this as part of their legal fee. Our firm can help with the following:
Although the Constitution of the United States explains that bail must be set at a reasonable amount for a defendant, other factors are taken into account when deciding bail. A defendant may be denied bail and remanded to jail if they pose a “flight risk” or if they have a prior history of related offenses. Other times, however, bail will be requested in the amount that an arrested individual may realistically be able to gain access to. This is paid as collateral, in the sense that the defendant would lose the amount that they have paid if they fail to appear in court after being released from custody. If a bail bondsman has posted bail for a person who later fails to appear, they may use law enforcement – or bounty hunters – to take the individual back into custody.
Skipping Out On Bail
When a defendant skips out on their bail, it will likely pose a serious threat to the outcome of their case. If you have been arrested and are being allotted a bail amount, you should contact legal representation immediately. A qualified attorney can make sure that all of the proper procedures are taken to ensure the best possible outcome of your case as well as to make sure that you do not have to spend time in jail before the date of your trial. Before you are given a date for a bail hearing, you should go over the facts of your arrest with legal counsel to make sure that they are well-equipped to retain you a reasonable bail.
