Securing Jail Release
San Antonio Attorney Partnering for Bail
In the State of Texas, attorneys have the ability to write bail bonds for their clients. Roberto Ambrosino from the Law Office of Roberto Ambrosino, PLLC partners with attorneys who write bonds in Bexar County.
This is advantageous to you for the following reasons:
- Instead of having to pay criminal defense attorney's fees and a hefty fee to a separate bail bond company for jail release, your bond fee can often be rolled into your attorney's fees
- The bond fee can be lower than the fee charged by the bond companies
- The conditions of bond, regarding travel and reporting, are often less restrictive
- Your attorney will always be aware of the status of your case, so there is no need to have to constantly update him
Perhaps the most important benefit of this arrangement is having your bondsman and attorney - the two figures invested in your well-being - wrapped into the same individual.
Book and Release
If your are pulled over for an alleged traffic violation, and a driver license scan shows that you have a pending arrest warrant for a felony or a misdemeanor, the police officer will arrest you for that warrant on the spot, may have your car impounded, and may even call Child Protective Services (CPS) to take your children if they're in the vehicle.
In Bexar County, you can more easily resolve your arrest warrant through a process referred to as "book and release." This is a much more civilized way of dealing with your arrest warrant. San Antonio criminal attorney Roberto Ambrosino can walk you through the process of turning yourself in while avoiding having to spend any time at the county jail; you won't even have to change into an orange jumpsuit!
