13 Jan Should You Contact Your Lawyer or Los Angeles Bail Bond Store First?
When you’re arrested the first two things you need to do is get bailed out of jail and connect with your lawyer so you can start planning your defense. The big question is who you should contact first: your lawyer or Los Angeles Bail Bond Store.
It depends on if your bail is preset or if you have to attend a bail hearing. If you’re charges are severe enough, you’ll have to go to a bail hearing where a judge will decide how much bail is required and what conditions will be connected to the bail. If you are required to attend a bail hearing, your lawyer should be the first person you contact.
If you’re told how much bail is required as soon as you’re booked, Los Angeles Bail Bond Store should be your first call. Thanks to our 24/7 availability, we’ll be able to help you out even during the middle of the night when your lawyer isn’t answering their phone.
As soon as we’ve worked out a payment plan and you’ve signed a contract, we go to work and get you sprung from jail. If there is a delay, it is only because we’re waiting for your paperwork to be processed.
Once we’ve posted your bail bond, you’re free to go home. This allows you to get a good night’s sleep, eat a decent meal, and discuss the situation with your family before calling your lawyer.
The fact that you’re relaxed and able to think clearly allows you to tell your lawyer what happened and to also listen to their advice before considering all of your options. Had you stayed in jail instead of contacting us about bail, you likely would have been so stressed that you would have jumped at the first offer the DA made.
