Please read my article about the top bail bondsman traps. It’s my mission to help those that may not understand how bail bonding works so that those in this emergency situation can make more rational and logical decisions. I’ve been helping folks make tough criminal charges go away for many years. I understand how traumatic it is to see a loved one in jail and not know what to do. Most people simply call a bail bondsman. In many cases a bail bondsman might be a good choice to post a bond. However, the bonding company is not an advocate for your loved one. The bonding company simply wants to make as much money as possible. Therefore, the bonding company will not give you any meaningful advice concerning far less costly ways of getting folks out of jail. Remember, being in jail is a temporary problem that can be resolved easily. However, getting marked with a criminal history because you spent all of your money on a bonding company or used the bonding company’s referred lawyer, is a problem that is permanent. Please call me so I can help you resolve these issues. Please also read my article which warns you about the top 7 bail bonds traps I seen folks fall into over the many years I’ve been doing.
Why hire a bail bond company and then hire a criminal defense lawyer? You can save money and time by hiring a criminal defense lawyer that can also write the bond.
Within Dallas County there are 26 different cities. Therefore, there are many city jails. Each city is responsible to have there own city magistrate set bonds on every case. However, most cities are so small they will not pay a magistrate to be available 24 hours, 7 days a week. Moreover, some cities claim to have a magistrate but the magistrate is also a practicing attorney. In these cities, the magistrate will always prefer to handle their personal clients first before they drive to the city jail to conduct arraignment and to set bonds for the city jail inmates. For example, it is not uncommon for someone to sit in the Desoto Jail for 2 full days before a bond gets set. The only way to get around this major and unnecessary delay is to hire an attorney.
Mr. Lowe can file a writ of habeas corpus or what’s called a writ bond or writ bail bond for any city in Dallas which includes Addison, Balch Springs, Carrollton, Cedar Hill, Cockrell Hill, Combine, Coppell, Dallas, Desoto, Duncanville, Farmers Branch, Garland, Grand Prairie, Glenn Heights, Highland Park, Hutchins, Irving, Lancaster, Mesquite, Richardson, Rowlett, Sachse, Seagoville, Sunnyvalle, University Park and Wilmer.
Even if a bond is already set in one of these cities, often times the bond amounts are extraordinarily high. In a case like this, you can save a substantial amount of money by hiring an attorney first. Mr. Lowe can, in many cases, file a writ with Dallas County to get the bond reduced according to the Dallas County bond schedule, which judges in both the Dallas County Criminal Courts and all Dallas District Courts will follow, in most cases.
