William W. Bruzzo has managed to get bail reduced or removed entirely for many clients.

It is always a good idea to hire an attorney before posting bail because a skilled attorney can help get the client out of jail by reducing bail or by removing bail altogether. ORANGE COUNTY IS ONE OF THE FEW PLACES IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WHERE AN ATTORNEY CAN TALK TO A 24-HOUR MAGISTRATE ABOUT REDUCING BAIL OR REMOVING BAIL (this is also called getting the client released on his own recognizance).

Most persons accused of crimes are eligible to have bail set. In deciding what bail amount to set the court will look to a Bail Schedule which lists every crime and the corresponding bail. The court will also look at the nature of the offense charged, the criminal record of the client and whether the client is a flight risk; that is will he appear at his posted court date.

Generally speaking misdemeanor bail amounts range from about $10,000.00 to $25,000.00; Felony bail amounts are usually $25,000.00 or more and can be as high as $1,000,000.00 for very serious crimes.

Please note that for felony probation violations often times NO BAIL IS SET and the client must wait until his case is resolved before getting released from custody.

Attorney William W. Bruzzo’s experience in the Orange County Court system is such that he has managed to get many clients released from custody without bail being posted. If you have questions regarding bail issues contact Mr. Bruzzo at (714) 547 4636.
