Loved one in jail

Mistakes happen. And sometimes people make bad judgments. Responsible adults understand that when a felony is committed there is often a steep price to pay. However, if you have a loved one in jail, it is often a temporary holding situation, not the final judgment of the court that leaves your family member in jail.

There is no reason to suffer additional penalties simply because you are under suspicion of a crime. Granted, there are procedures that must be followed in the event of an arrest, but there are also actions that can be taken to mitigate some of those actions, most especially gaining release from jail while awaiting trial.

How to Manage Money When a Loved One is in Jail 

All too often a person sitting in jail still has responsibilities towards their family. For instance, a landlord is unlikely to show much mercy or pity if one of the breadwinners is incarcerated and unable to earn the income with which they live month to month. Other bills will also continue piling up which just adds more pressure to family members trying to make ends meet.

One would think that the last thing a person would want to do is get an attorney to help with this troublesome situation. However, that is faulty thinking! Yes, attorneys cost money, but they very well earn it especially when they can get family members in jail released, and back to earning money. This not only alleviates immediate financial pressures, but it offers hope and opens wider the door of possibility. There are even attorneys able to offer manageable payment options to get started on the case of your family.

With the firm of Stephen Bowling, you not only get dedicated and experienced DWI and Criminal Defense attorneys, but you can usually arrange affordable payments. Simply mention your interest in setting up a payment plan when you call and your needs will be evaluated. 

Typically, a nominal initial payment is all that is required to begin the process of releasing your loved ones from jail. And of course, once released, you have another income earner able to help pay for their defense. 

How a Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help

Criminal defense cases can cover a broad range of situations, which is why many law firms build a team of specialists able to professionally represent different and often challenging cases for their clients. Typical criminal defense specialties include (but are not limited to):

  • Drug Charges
  • Federal Charges
  • Sex Crime Charges
  • Violent Crime Charges

By working with specialists in these widely varying areas of criminal law a defendant will be better represented by an expert with a depth of experience that can be used in the current case. Of course, the law firm of Stephen Bowling is populated with such specialists, meaning that not only do you get the right representation with a higher chance of success, but you can also structure an affordable payment plan, so you don’t fall deeper into debt. 

The other key advantage to working with experienced and professional specialists in criminal defense is their familiarity with the local legal system. Often their reputation precedes them when presenting a case in court which can greatly influence the opposing attorney to consider settling the case under extremely favorable terms for the defendant. It is not uncommon for such professionals to obtain a judgment that avoids having your loved one in jail but instead supports the defendant’s desire to get back on the right track and make a positive contribution to society.
