Bail Bond Hearings Lawyer in Phoenix, AZ
Arizona criminal defense attorneys with great success in modifying conditions of release and reducing bond.
Whether you or a loved one is arrested for DUI or murder, a misdemeanor or a felony, one of the first priorities is to get the accused released from custody. Release may be by way of a simple promise to appear, also known as being released on one’s own recognizance. However, for more serious Arizona misdemeanors or felonies, or where the accused has a prior criminal record, posting bond may be required to secure release.
Our Phoenix criminal defense attorneys take pride in the fact that so few of our clients are behind bars. To a great extent this is due to the success we have in rapidly obtaining reasonable conditions of release, affordable bonds, or release on the client’s own recognizance. While every case is unique, in most instances we can help arrange for a client’s successful release within 24 hours.
An experienced Arizona criminal defense lawyer can be extremely helpful in getting bond reduced in Arizona after it is originally set, or helping a defendant be released to a responsible third party, under the supervision of the probation department, or on his or her own recognizance.
For example, in some of our more serious felony cases, the Arizona criminal defense lawyers at The Gillespie Law Firm, P.C. have been successful in seeking bond reduction in Maricopa County Superior Court as follows:
- State v. S.D. – $2.5 million to $100,000
- State v. J.O. – $500,000 to $10,000
- State v. S.H. – $250,000 to $100,000
- State v. O.B. – $207,000 to $56,000
- State v. R.L. – $108,000 to $32,000
What if a bond is denied? Can the decision be reversed? Perhaps. Once a defendant has been denied a bond, there may be little anyone can do prior to the resolution of the case. This is particularly true in certain cases where state law authorizes the accused to be held without bond. In certain instances, however, our Arizona criminal defense lawyers may to ask the Court to reconsider its decision so that we may present additional evidence.
As stated above, pretrial release may be by way of a simple promise to appear, also known as being released on one’s own recognizance. However, for more serious misdemeanors or felonies, or where the accused has a prior record, posting cash bail may be required to secure release.
