2018 San Diego County Bail Schedule

If you have a friend or family member arrested we are here to help you understand the criminal bail process and to discuss your available options. You may find it difficult to contact the person who was arrested for some time after the booking procedure, and the nature of the jail system may make it difficult for you to acquire the information you need concerning the arrest. You should not post bail for an inmate until you have contacted our office to discuss the situation. In some cases we are able to have the bail reduced before the first court date. In addition if you retain our office that will entitle you to reduced bail bond fees. This is called “attorney referred bond”. Finally, in some cases it is not a good idea to bail a loved one out until after the arraignment. If you retain our office, we may be able to convince the judge at the first court hearing to lower the bail or to release your family member or friend without bail (called release on their own recognizance).
