My boyfriend was arrested for marijuana trafficking in Phoenix and is being held in jail. How do I handle bail?

As Phoenix drug offense lawyers, we receive many initial questions about bail and how to pay bail in Arizona. Essentially, within 24 hours your boyfriend will see a judge who will decide on the conditions for release or for bail. There may be certain conditions that restrict how bail can be posted or if it can be posted at all. You should be aware that this can often be a confusing and emotionally stressful process, and there are some shady people out there who might try to take advantage of your need for financial help.

The first thing you should know is that your Phoenix criminal lawyer is here and ready to help from the moment of a loved one’s arrest. We can be present for the initial appearance and work toward getting the bail amount reduced. And, in some cases, we can help you avoid paying bail altogether by getting your loved one released on his or her own recognizance or promise to appear.

Once bail has been set, we can also help you find a reputable, reliable bail bondsman, if needed.
