Emergency Bond Hearings

Contact an attorney at Plotnick Law Firm to discuss an emergency bond hearing for a case in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Manatee counties (Greater Tampabay Area).

The purpose of setting bail is to ensure the defendant comes to court for trial and any required pre-trial court dates. An experienced criminal defense attorney can file a Motion to Reduce Bond. In many cases, the purpose of the bond motion is to show the court that the defendant's ties to the community and the circumstances of the case make it unlikely that the defendant would flee the jurisdiction or be a danger to the community, thereby allowing the court to set a substantially lower bond or release the defendant on his signature or own recognizance (often called the "OR" bond or the "ROR" bond).

In many of these cases, the defendant's family actually saves money by hiring the attorney to file the motion to reduce bond which is often less expensive then posting unreasonably high bond. Even in those cases in which the defendant is being held without bond, an experienced attorney can often convince the court that although the court is allowed to hold the defendant without setting bond, under the facts of that particular case, the court should set a reasonable bond.
