We'll help you determine whether you need our services – or not.
The agents of Brennan Bail Bonds work hard to build trust with our clients. We want you to come to us if you have any bail bonds questions. If your loved one does need a bond posted, we will be more than happy to make sure it gets done as expeditiously as possible. There are occasions, however, when a bail bond may not be needed or is simply a bad idea. We can use our experiences to help you make a wise decision as to whether or not you should post a bail bond. Navigating the bail bonds process can be confusing and frustrating if you try and do it alone. We are here to help you make the right choice for your situation. Our agents will inform you of all of the risks as well as the benefits.
Everyone in entitled to bail according to the Constitution. According to the 8th amendment, a person's bail must fit their alleged crime. For example, a person who has been charged with misdemeanor theft or burglary must receive a bail that fits that particular crime. A bail that is more suited for a felony charge would be considered unconstitutional and against the law.
Bail is set according to the crime committed, the prior criminal history of the defendant and whether or not they are a possible flight risk. If the crime is minor, the bail that corresponds to it may be found on a pre-determined list of bail bonds and criminal offenses designed to be used so the defendant would not have to wait to appear in front of the judge. By using the bail schedule, they know their bail immediately and can bond out within a few hours.
Hiring a bail bonds agent is your choice. You can post the bond yourself if you have the financial means to do so. Most people are not financially sound and may have problems coming up with the entire bail amount. Hiring a bail bonds agent makes the process much easier. When you work with a bail bonds agency, you only have to come up with 10% of the total bond amount and pay the premium to post the bond. Posting a bond on your own can take much more time than if you chose a local agency to do the job for you.
Brennan Bail Bonds agents are available whenever you need them. Our offices are always open and an agent is always there to answer the phones and start a new bail bond. If you call our office, you will never hear an automated service or an answering machine. That is not how we do things. We pride ourselves on personal service. We have offices all over the state of Florida. No matter where you are, we can be there. If you are out of the state, our convenient Bail by Phone feature makes us only as far away as the nearest phone.
If you have heard that you may have a warrant out for your arrest, come into our agency and we will look it up for you. All you need is proper identification. We will ask you some specific questions as they pertain to your situation and run a warrant check to find out if warrants are pending. There are some cases where a person may not have a clue that there is a warrant out for their arrest. We can help you get a jump on the situation by having your bail bond written, approved and secured before you turn yourself in. That way once you go in to begin the booking process, we will go and immediately post your bail. As soon as the booking process is finished, you will already be entering into the release process. You will be in and out of jail in a matter of hours.
An arrest is difficult for the entire family. From the financial situation to facing the fact that a loved one has been put in jail can be extremely difficult on all involved. We are here to alleviate the fears and frustrations that often accompany the arrest of a loved one. Let us help you get your family back on track and away from a negative situation.
We will maintain the utmost privacy when it comes to your case. Being arrested can lead to a variety of issues for family members. While we can help to control our part of the situation, we will help to keep your situation as confidential as possible. It can be especially difficult on children when a parent is arrested. We have kids of our own and are more than willing to talk to them and help them understand what is going on and how it may affect them. Families come first and we want to help you hold dear to that concept.
Bail bonds are a financial contract that allows for a defendants' release from jail in exchange for a 10% non-refundable, non-negotiable fee. Once the fee is paid, the defendant is released from jail as long as he agrees to make it to all court scheduled hearings and complies with the requirements from the court. Bail bonds are everyone's constitutional right and can be used to help a person get home to their family, as well as keep their job.
The premium is not a fine or penalty. Instead it is required to cover the cost of doing the paperwork, filing the application with the court and paying for the services of the bail bond agency. If you choose to pay the bond yourself, you will be required to post the full amount in order to obtain the release of the defendant. While you only pay 10% to a bail bondsman, you will not get anything back. Paying the bond yourself allows you to recover most of the money you posted. Fines, court costs and restitution will be deducted from the total bond amount before the money is released back to the co-signer.
We’ll help you to determine whether you need our service – or not.
