Bail vs. Bond

Questions To Ask Attorneys When You Need Them

Bail Bondsman and Attorney are Your Friends

At some point, everyone needs a lawyer at one time or another. Sometimes, you’ve benefited from their services and didn’t even realize it. Remember when you closed on your mortgage? Well at some point an attorney on staff at the bank or title company reviewed the closing paperwork. And, unfortunately, if a loved one has passed away you may have benefited from an attorney who helped that person draw up a will, or papers to transfer assets to your name. Denver Bail Bonds work the same way for people who utilize them. If you get arrested, you may have to post bail at the Denver County jail. But you also may decide to use your phone call for an attorney, pleading to get you out. That’s not necessarily what a lawyer does, so he’ll say “Sit tight” and call a bondsman to do the rest.

A bail bondsman and attorney have a symbiotic relationship in many respects, needing each other for professional support. If you’re an attorney, what can a bondsman working with bail bonds in Aurora do for you? Here’s just a sample.

Roles of a Bail Bondsman

  • A successful, reputable and well liked bail bondsman can boost your professional standing, because any referrals you make are a reflection on your skills and professional judgment. If an attorney recommends a bail bondsman who can’t do the job, doesn’t know the ins and outs of bail bonds in Boulder, or does a crappy job, that’s a direct and poor reflection on your judgment. Any defendant will question your judgment and choose someone else.

  • An experienced bondsman can provide a number of extra services that you may not have the time or skills to handle: Being present for court appearances for bail and 1275 hearings, 24 hour emergency service like odd-hour phone calls, signature bonds that don’t require a signature, arranging payment plans for the defendant, and even providing transportation to and from home or other locations.

  • The number one responsibility of the person posting bail is to make sure the defendant returns to court on whatever date or dates have been scheduled. Unless there is some sort of a medical emergency, the scheduled court dates are usually not negotiable.
