According to Florida law, within 24 hours after a physical arrest is made, the person must appear before a judge who will review the charge to determine probable cause and set a bond. If contacted immediately after arrest an attorney can appear on your behalf at this first appearance court to speak with the Assistant State Attorney and Judge to present certain information to get you the lowest possible bond amount or have you released on your own recognizance (ROR.) Contact The Law Office of Tiffany H. Poore as soon as possible after arrest to have an experienced criminal defense attorney represent you at all stages of the process.
Even if an attorney did not represent you at your first appearance, one can file a pretrial motion to reduce your bond. Contact The Law Office of Tiffany H. Poore at 904-395-2293 before paying the full bond amount. We can file a Motion to Reduce Bond and have a hearing that may result in your bond being significantly reduced or you being ROR’d so that you can continue with your life while we fight your charges.
