Bail and Bond

Helping Clients Resolve Bail and Bond Problems

An immediate problem for anyone arrested on a serious charge is how to get out of jail. If someone in your family is being detained on a criminal charge, or if you're having trouble making bond after a first appearance, contact the Law Offices of John F. Marshall in Shrewsbury, Toms River, or any of our other New Jersey locations.

If you were arrested on Saturday, we can appear at a Monday bond hearing

We offer prompt statewide service on bail and bond hearings. While our goal is to achieve an ROR — release on recognizance without the need to post bail — we can also solve detention and release problems such as the following:

  • Reducing the original bail ordered by the court
  • Advising you about your options for posting your own bond to avoid the 10 percent bondsman's fee
  • Negotiating release conditions with the prosecution and the court
  • Resolving problems with alleged bail or bond violations

In cases where you or a family member is hiding from execution of an arrest warrant, our lawyers can also intervene with the prosecution to negotiate surrender terms and pretrial release conditions.

Our goal is to get you out of detention on the lightest terms possible

Bail is not meant to serve as a pretrial punishment or fine, but instead is meant to ensure the appearance of the defendant in court when required. We can explain your rights and obligations with respect to bail, bond, release conditions, restraining orders, chemical dependency evaluation, and any other terms the court requires. Our experience with both adult and juvenile detention hearings can help ensure that your release terms are reasonable under the facts of your case.

We fully understand the importance of getting out of jail as quickly as possible. With offices throughout New Jersey, we can act fast to secure your release on the best terms we can achieve. To learn more about our ability to help you with bail and bond problems, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of John F. Marshall.
