Frequently Asked Questions
How can I find out if someone is in jail?
Whether or not a person is in jail is considered public information by
the law. You can easily find out if someone is in jail by calling your
local jail house and ask if a specific person is in jail.
How can I bail out a loved one from jail?
Bonding is done 24 hours per day and can be done personally or through
a bonding agent. A bonding agent can either come from a bail bondsman
service or a criminal defense attorney. Jail houses have a list of local
bonding agents and cannot recommend any specific one, so it’s best
to know who you want to use ahead of time.
How long will it take to release my loved one from jail?
With a bonding agent, the process is usually fairly quick. However, finally
being released depends on how many others are in the releasing process
and how cooperative you or your loved one is with the deputies. If they
remain hostile, they will be placed in a holding cell until they decide
to remain cooperative.
Can I call an inmate in jail?
Inmates cannot receive calls, although they are each allowed to call out.
If you were informed that an inmate is unable to make calls to you, it’s
You are unable to receive calls on that line and don’t have a prepaid
account set up
Your telephone is forwarded
Any attempts for three-way calls are automatically disconnected
Would it be wiser to pay out of pocket for a bail bond?
No. Not only do criminal defense
attorneys get clients out of jail faster (usually within two hours), but the legal
fees include jail release. Attempting to gather the amount due up front
on your own can take days, weeks or even months. That is precious time
you and your loved one could be working with the attorney on your defense.
Why Should I Choose a Defense Attorney Instead of Bail Bondsman or Paying
Out of Pocket?
attorneys can obtain a bond for your loved one by meeting with the late night magistrate
judge. A criminal defense lawyer is also better equipped to argue for
a lower bail or better conditions or release. We know how to make the
jail release process go faster and easier than traditional methods. If
you choose to pay a bail bondsman to assist you with a personal bond,
the bondsman keeps the money you have paid. However, if you choose to
use a defense attorney for assistance with a personal bond, your money
is applied toward your legal fees. As you can see, choosing an attorney
over a bail bondsman for jail release is a much more cost-effective solution.
Affordable – Bail bondsmen will normally charge an extra fee and
often require some type of collateral or co-signer to obtain a bond of
any kind. Even then, you will still need to hire a criminal defense attorney
to assist in the upcoming criminal case after getting out of jail. Additionally,
if you want to pay out of pocket, it’s important to know that the
full amount is due before leaving the facility. You cannot pay in installments
or any sort of payment plan...you can with your defense attorney.
Convenient – A defense attorney helps you with all aspects of your
case, including both the representation and the bond. This means you only
have the work with one firm for your entire case, rather than splitting
up the different aspects of it and working with multiple companies.
Sees it through – The impact an attorney can make on your behalf
depends on how soon the attorney was able to get involved. If you contact
an experienced criminal defense attorney from the beginning you will already
be ahead of the game. Working on the case from the very beginning (as
soon as you were arrested) until the end benefits the strength of your
legal representation process.
