Criminal Defense Lawyer Taking Cases from Bail Bond Agents
When a defendant enters the criminal justice system, they may be immediately sent to jail or placed on bail at a price they cannot afford without bond. With limited access to phone calls or the ability to research and call a lawyer, they may prioritize calling a bail agent to help them get out of jail. Our attorneys can work with bail bond agents to take cases and come meet with your client in your office or meet them in jail to discuss representing them in their case. In many cases, a defendant with a lawyer is a far better bail bond client.
Our Salt Lake City criminal defense lawyers have decades of experience handling criminal cases. We work to, first and foremost, get our clients out of jail. If a client contacts a bail agent but cannot afford bond on a high cash bail – or has been denied bail altogether – there may be little the bail agent can do to get them out of jail. Our attorneys may be able to file for bail reduction so that our clients can afford a bail bond.
Being released from jail is an important factor in helping to beat the charges. When a defendant is released from jail, they can spend time with their family, continue working at their job, and meet with their lawyer at their leisure, putting them in a better mindset and strategic position to fight the charges they face.
We also make sure to keep our clients returning to court so that they can resolve their case successfully. ROR bail should be issued in nearly every case that doesn’t involve severe violence or a high flight risk. However, in cases where cash bail is required, the defendant is likely facing higher potential penalties. This often means increased fear of going back to court to face the charges. Our lawyers can put our decades of experience to work to help our defendants face their cases in court with a firm plan to help them overcome the charges against them and reduce the risk of further jail time or sentencing. This helps cut down on the chance that your bail payments will be forfeited and helps increase the chance of full payment on their bond.
Our attorneys work to suppress evidence and get charges dropped and dismissed to reduce the potential penalties our clients could face. We also challenge the facts of the case at trial, forcing the prosecution to work for every element they try to prove. In the end, if our defendants do face sentencing, we work to get those sentences reduced and keep our defendants out of jail by seeking probation and other alternative sentences.
