Jail Release

If you are trying to get a friend, family member, or loved one out of jail in Dallas, Plano, Frisco, and all of Collin County please call 214.702.CARL (2275), or in Austin or Travis County please call 512.657.9992 immediately for assistance.

Carl will answer his phone 24 hours a day/7 days a week.  He will go to the jail and begin the process of initiating a jail release as soon as possible. There are several different types of bonds an attorney can pursue to try and get someone out of jail, depending upon the location - a Personal Recognizance Bond (PR Bond), a Cash Deposit Bond, or a Surety Bond.

For those arrested and incarcerated in Plano, Frisco, or McKinney for a Collin County criminal charge, an attorney can help speed the process up by filing for an Attorney Writ Bond.

For those arrested and incarcerated in Dallas County and held in a jail located in Garland, Mesquite, Highland Park, University Park, Irving, Balch Springs, Coppell, DeSoto, or Addison, the Attorney Writ Bond may also be able to be filed to help secure the jail release.

An attorney has a great amount of flexibility in Texas with regards to jail release.  If you hire The Law Offices of Carl David Ceder, PLLC, to assist in the jail release, the fee that is charged will always be applied to the legal retainer. Don't pay a bail bondsman first and then have to pay twice when you hire an attorney, simply call Carl and he will begin the process. This helps make make the jail release not an additional expense, as it would be if you hired a bail bondsman instead.

Filing a Collin County or Dallas County Writ Bond:

The Law Office of Carl David Ceder, PLLC, can provide you fast and reliable Attorney Writ Bond service to those arrested and/or in jail for Collin County charges and incarcerated in Frisco, McKinney, Wylie, Allen, Plano, and all surrounding areas.

For those arrested and incarcerated in Dallas County and held in a jail located in Garland, Mesquite, Highland Park, University Park, Irving, Balch Springs, Coppell, DeSoto, or Addison, the Attorney Writ Bond may also be able to be filed to help secure the jail release.

Whenever someone is first arrested, regardless of the location, they must wait to see a magistrate judge. Unfortunately, sometimes this process can take hours, and sometimes even days.  Magistrate judges often do not work on night, holidays, or weekends.  Also, the jails are crowded, and sometimes they experience staffing problems and population issues. The jail system can get very bogged down, thereby prolonging the amount of time it takes to get the opportunity to get before a magistrate judge so a bond amount can be set. The filing of an Attorney Writ Bond can help make this process much faster.  In Collin or Dallas County, if an attorney files the Lawyer Writ Bond, then the arrested person will not have to wait to see a magistrate judge, which effectively bypasses the waiting period that will otherwise occur.

When the Attorney Writ Bond is filed, a set fee schedule is used as a bond amount for whatever criminal offense is charged. Once the Attorney Writ Bond is filed, the Bond can be set in whatever method is selected.  

Cash can be paid directly to the bonding desk and the person will then be released.  If a cash bond is posted, this amount is used as "surety" for the person to appear in court.  If the arrested person makes all required court appearances, the cash bond amount will be returned. A bail bondsman could also be used in the event that the cash cannot be found. If the arrested person posts the cash bond, they will receive this amount back at the conclusion of their case, assuming they show up for all court settings.

The Lawyer Writ Bond cannot be used for some offenses. If you call Carl he can help ascertain whether you or your loved one is eligible for an Attorney Writ Bond to be filed.  Generally speaking, it can be used only for routine Class A or B Misdemeanor offenses (DWI, Theft charges, possession of marijuana, etc). An Attorney Writ Bond is not possible for Class C Misdemeanors or Traffic Tickets, domestic violence charges, assault cases, and/or with felony cases.

If you or your loved one is facing one of the cases above and you need an Attorney Writ Bond filed, call the Law Office of Carl David Ceder, PLLC, immediately at 214.702.CARL (2275) and Carl will work to help secure a fast and speedy release.

Personal Recognizance Bond:

In Travis County the pre-trial services department issues many "PR" Bonds to individuals who are not a flight risk and who have little or no criminal history. In the event that you are arrested at night, an attorney can go down to the jail and initiate the process for a faster release. This fee is always included in the legal representation, and you or your loved one will subsequently get out much quicker.

In the event that pre-trial services turns down an individua for a "PR" Bond, an attorney can still go and request that a judge sign and issue a "PR" Bond for the incarcerated person. On many occasions it is the case where pre-trial services will turn someone down for a "PR" Bond because they have not yet hired an attorney. As such, the mere fact that you have hired an attorney can sometimes persuade a judge to sign the bond.

Cash Deposit Bond:

In the event that you or your loved one is turned down for a "PR" Bond, the judge can still issue a Cash Deposit Bond. A Cash Deposit Bond is structured so that the individual puts a percentage of the bond amount down as a deposit with the court, usually somewhere between 10%-20%. This fee has to be paid in cash, but at the conclusion of the case, this amount can then be applied towards the legal fee. Doing this also helps save a money, in that you do not have to pay an additional expense to a bondsman for the jail release.

Surety Bond:

An attorney in certain circumstances can also issue a Surety Bond to get someone out of jail in Travis County. While this is rarely done and should only be done as a last resort, it is still always a possibility. The best thing to do before this measure is reached is have an attorney try and exhaust the first two measures before proceeding with a Surety Bond.
