Bail Hearings in Criminal Defense

Highly recommend! Colin thank you so much for your dedication. Thank you for actually wanting to sincerely help and give us the best outcome we can get. You are by far one of the best. You helped my bf reschedule a court date after it was missed and was able to give him the same plea deal. Thank you again Colin.

Absolutely wonderful! Collin was fantastic. He really fought for me and I am very happy with the outcome of my case. He really fought for my case to have a positive outcome and was supportive, easy to get ahold of when needed and walked me through everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

I would highly recommend Hoeller McLaughlin. They helped my husband on a probation violation case and did an excellent job. Dustin Trammel was our attorney and he communicated with us and was supportive and helpful throughout the process. Very good legal service and would recommend this firm.

Colin by far has been one of the BEST attorneys in Ft. Worth. His dedication and attentiveness really shows not only in court but with the client and family. Great communication, easy web portal and friendly staff. 5 stars are NOT enough. Thank you Colin

Stephanie Alvarado

I can not say enough about how grateful I am that Dustin Trammel was my attorney! Having no experience with court proceedings, Dustin explained everything and stayed in touch with me the entire time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Very highly recommend!!

Other than the obvious desire to be released from custody, being released on bail can allow you to regain as much of your normal life as possible and assist in the preparation of your defense while your case is winding its way through the system. It is important, therefore, to provide your defense attorney with all the information that will help convince the judge you are not a flight risk.

Ties to the Community

The more established you are in terms of your residential and employment situation, the better. If you own your home, for instance, the length of time you have lived there and the equity in the property will be considerations. If you rent, having a long-term leases is preferable to a month-to-month arrangement. Similarly, if you have a solid job with a consistent work history over a long period of time, you appear more trustworthy than if you constantly change jobs.

Family Life

A person married with children to support or one who regularly makes child support payments seems more stable and to have more at stake than a single individual.

Criminal Record

Prior state or federal criminal arrests and convictions can be problematic but may be minimized depending on how long ago, the severity of the charge and whether previous parole or probation terms were complied with.

Other Factors

Other factors to consider include immigration status, past military service and the nature of your discharge and whether you can demonstrate the ability to post a cash bond or qualify for a surety bond.
