Most people don’t think about how difficult it is to prepare a solid defense while you’re sitting in a jail cell. There’s very little privacy. You have to hope that your lawyer is willing and able to arrange their schedule so that they can routinely meet with you. Most importantly, you can’t gain access to any important documents or pieces of evidence that could be used to help you make your case and have to rely on others to find them and give them to your lawyer.
Any way you look at it, being released on a bail bond that you’ve gotten from San Jose Bail Bonds makes preparing a solid defense for your case considerably easier. Not only can you go to your lawyer’s office and actually provide them with everything they need, but you’re also able to continue working which may make it possible for you to hire a slightly better lawyer to handle your case rather than having to rely on a court-appointed defense attorney.
The ability to prepare a solid defense for your case is just one of the reasons you should consider getting a bail bond rather than sitting in a jail cell. Being out of jail allows you to work, to spend time with your family, and to enjoy what you have while you wait for the courts to deal with your case. You’ll find that being out on a bail bond is considerably more relaxing than sitting in a cell.
