If a loved one has been arrested and because of illness, Dr. appointments, sick children, etc, on the part of the person arrested, and it IMPERATIVE that someone be bailed out Right Now, many Bondsmen will give a 7% Bond rate if coordinated through counsel.
Most criminal defense attorneys know, or deal with bail bond agents that give this rate to clients. It can be substantial. A $50k bail bond at 10% is $5,000.00 out of pocket..
However at 7% it is $3,500. (a $1,500.00 savings.)
The bottom line is before you rush to bail someone out, call a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney first. Don’t exhaust valuable resources on bail money only to compromise defense resources which puts your loved one back in jail.
