I have a loved one in jail. How can I help them?

The first thing you can do if you have a loved one in jail is recognize that all jail phone calls are recorded. So, don’t talk to your loved one about how they ended up in jail! Anything they say can be used against them in court.

Your loved one in jail will almost always be eligible for pre-trial release upon the posting of bail / bond.  The posting of cash bail or bond will secure the release of your loved one while trial is pending. If you’re interested in posting bail / bond for a loved-one awaiting trial, contact the Balmer Law Office to discuss your options and how you can best help your loved one.
