? Is an attorney necessary? What about a public defender? In a criminal matter, the defendant should consult with an attorney. Many attorneys offer a free consultation. The public defender is appointed to those who cannot afford a private attorney. At the first court appearance called the arraignment, the defendant is asked if he/she can afford an attorney. If the answer is no, the court appoints a public defender. style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(28, 28, 28); line-height: 21px; background-image: initial; background-attachment: initial; background-size: initial; background-origin: initial; background-clip: initial; background-position: initial; background-repeat: initial;">Common Sense Rules:
- If you've bailed someone out of jail and know they are going to JUMP- please call us immediately, so that your financial responsibilities are lessened or removed.
- If you or the defendant has moved, please keep your bail company updated. One of the benefits of posting bail is the ability to be free and to conduct one's affairs as usual. Unless instructed by the court, the defendant is free as long as he/she appears before the court, as directed.
