Making Bail Before Trial

If you have a loved one in jail awaiting trial, understand your options. Although a bail bondsman can be convenient (typically located near the jail/sheriff’s office), it can be expensive. Up to 15% of the bond total is often required as a fee, which can be expensive.

Cheaper Alternatives to Bondsman in Lubbock County

In Lubbock, a criminal attorney can provide a personal bond up to 10% for misdemeanor cases. If bail is set at $5,000, only $500 needs to be deposited. This deposit can also be returned after a case, saving defendants time and money.

Other options also exist in select cases, including a personal recognizance bond and cash bond. Talk to a criminal law firm about these alternatives, get a free consultation today!
