What are the steps in an Austin Jail Release:

  1. The judge will set the bond amount,
  2. Pretrial Investigations will gather the arrestees information, conduct a background check, and call references,
  3. The Judge reviews the bond application and approves or denies it,
  4. The approved bond is delivered to the jail for processing, and
  5. Your friend or loved one is released, usually within 2-4 hours of the jail receiving the bond.

How do we expedite an Austin Jail Release?

  1. We go to pretrial investigations and obtain a bond package to interview the arrested individual. This allows us to interview the arrestee to gather the information needed for the background check.
  2. We take the package directly to pretrial services and wait while the background check is conducted. Once the background check is conducted, Pretrial Investigations will either recommend approving or denying the bond.
  3. As soon as pretrial services gives their recommendation, we take it to the duty magistrate for approval. Although pretrial investigation may recommend denying the bond, the judge will often approve it with an attorney walking the bond through for the arrestee.
  4. Once approved we return the bond to pretrial services to prepare a package for delivery for the jail.
  5. Then we walk the bond to the Jail for processing.

Without an attorney expediting the bond, it often takes significantly longer for your friend or loved one to get released from jail. Once the magistrate sets the bond, typically between 7 am and 1 am, we can usually walk the bond through the above process and deliver it to the jail within 2 hours.

Proven Defense by a Former Law Enforcement Officer

They think the best they can hope for is a smaller fine or a reduction in the amount of time they lose their license. We focus on defending anyone accused of a DWI. With the right legal counsel, there are other outcomes. Depending on the facts of the case, what if

  • Instead of months of suspension, you don’t lose your license at all?
  • Instead of making a deal for probation, you never get convicted?
  • Instead of having a DWI conviction, your record stays clean?
  • Instead of cutting bad deals, you get a vigorous DWI defense?
