Questions I Will Answer At Your Consultation:
- What defenses do I have?
- What are my options?
- I’m a first time offender, what am I looking at?
- Will I go to jail?
- What effect will this have on my record, my employment, or my driver’s license?
Should You Hire a Lawyer or Bond Out First?
Hire the lawyer first. He might be able to get your bond lowered and he is much more important to you in the case than the bondsman is.
Save the bond money for your attorney. Your attorney does not want to leave you in jail. Your attorney will be there to help you seek a lower bond, and then to advocate and fight for your innocence and freedom. If you do get convicted, only your attorney will be there to fight for a lower sentence. Only your attorney will listen to your side of the story and present it in your defense in court.
And you won’t be able to afford an attorney if you spend all or most of your money on the bondsman.
