The criminal trial lawyers at Appelman Law Firm practice in Washington County and have established excellent relationships with the judges and prosecutors. They are very familiar with the procedures in Washington County and can help to guide you through the judicial process.
If you’re facing criminal charges, it is highly recommended that you choose an attorney to represent you that has familiarity with the specific county courthouse where your case will be heard. Not only will this familiarity help with some simple logistics, but relationships with judges, prosecutors and courthouse staff can help you get a fair shake in court, which can lead to a favorable outcome. It also pays to work with a lawyer who has successfully navigated the on-call system in the event they needed to get a client out of jail on the weekend, which we’ve done before in Washington County. More on that below.
Bail on the Weekend
If you are arrested over a weekend, don’t wait to call an attorney until you’re out of custody. The attorneys at Appelman Law Firm are successful at getting bail set for your offense so that you don’t need to wait until court is back in session on Monday morning to be released. We can contact the on-call judge, explain your case, have bail set and help to secure your release so that you can get back to normal life sooner. This oftentimes helps to prevent family or financial issues that could arise if you’re stuck in jail for an extended period.
