What is bail/bond?

Bond is get-out-of- jail before trial money.

 

Bond is set by a judge. Bail is the amount of money required.

 

You have the right to some form of pre-trial release in most cases. There are two ways to get out of jail during the pre-trial period: ONE is Conditional Pre-Trial Release (no money but arduous conditions), TWO is bond (money).

 

If you miss court, get a new law violation, or violate any conditions of bail (set by the judge), the judge can put you in jail until the trial and you lose the bond money.

My experience with Mr. Behr and his staff was nothing short of phenomenal. I hope to not ever need representation again. But In the case I do. J would absolutely use Mr. Behr. I would also fully recommend him to anyone I know in need of representation.

When I travel throughout the world for business I can honestly say that I feel extremely comfortable knowing I can pick up the phone for guidance and know Mr. Behr will consistently have my back with a positive answer on the other end. I attribute my success with my business by having this honorable man on my team. Thomas

He filed motion after motion until the judge finally dismissed my case. He even took it to another judge. The guy never stopped and let nothing stop him. He was all over the prosecutor and knew more law than the judge, it was super cool to watch the man work. He is the best lawyer in the county. Jose
