Dallas and Collin County Attorney Bail Bonds

People never plan to be arrested. It usually is a very scary and confusing process. Posting a bond after a person has been arrested is done in order to secure their appearance at court and in trial. Often people do not know who to call or what to do for help. The Law Offices of Carl David Ceder, PLLC can help facilitate you or your loved ones release from jail.

To fully protect you or your loved one’s rights, you need an experienced Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney who knows the requisite law and legal process governing bail bonds. The Law Offices of Carl David Ceder, PLLC, firmly believes the sooner clients get out of jail, the better.   People who are in jail are more likely to cut deals with the prosecution to get out of jail to sustain their release. These deals are generally not in their best interest, especially if there is no criminal defense attorney present.   As well, for more serious criminal offenses, the chance presents itself for an inmate to act as a “jail house snitch.”

The Law Offices of Carl David Ceder, PLLC will aggressively protect the rights of people at any stage of the bail bond process, whether the courts have set a bond amount or not. If no action has been taken by the courts to set a bail amount, Carl can seek to file a writ of habeas corpus to authorize the judge to release the defendant. If the arrest and detention occurs in Dallas County and/or Collin County, Texas, an Attorney Writ Bond may be able to be filed to help secure a faster release.

There are usually several way to obtain a jail release.  After a person is arrested, a judge will usually set a bond amount.  This will be an exact dollar amount that is given with consideration to the charged offense, taking into account the person’s personal criminal history, background, residence, and ties to the community.  

If a bond amount has already been set, it can typically be posted in any of the 3 following ways:

Cash Bond

The arrested party can post a cash bond directly in the amount of bail. The major benefit when pursuing this option is the amount paid will be returned at the conclusion of the case, assuming the defendant appears at all court settings. Often, however, this amount can be a very large amount and obtaining it can be difficult, especially on short notice.

Professional Bail Bond Company

The arrested party can also use a professional bail bond company to secure the jail release. The bail bond company will charge a percentage of the face amount of the bond to secure the person's release. Sometimes the bond company will want a type of collateral to insure the risk involved with the transaction. The major downside to using a bail bond company is that percentage paid will not be returned at the conclusion of the case. Many people use bail bond companies to obtain their jail release. However, it is important to note the bail bond companies are not attorneys, and thus the attorney-client privilege does not apply. Anything you tell them can be repeated to police and prosecutors.  Unlike attorneys, they care very little regarding the outcome of your case, as their primary concern is making sure you show up to court.
