A Loved One Arrested

A Loved One Arrested

Arrested in Austin? Now What?

It is three (3) in the morning, you’re sound asleep when the phone rings. You peep at your phone and don’t recognize the number, so you slam it down and roll over. It rings again, same number, this time you answer angrily to see what the hell is going on that’s so important at this hour. It’s a recorded voice informing you the origination of your call is “Travis County Jail” and the inmate on the phone is your loved one or dear friend and your number is the only one they had memorized.

Now, you’re wide awake, and concerned. You’re tasked with getting this loved one out of jail, but you know nothing of this process, other than maybe a bail bondsman, or a lawyer can help. You grab your laptop and search for ideas, hopefully, this blog appears and you take a chance and click on it.

DO NOT call a bondsman first. In Travis County, it’s very common for lawyers to facilitate jail releases. Lawyers are potentially, the quickest way to obtain a bond. I can go see your loved one immediately, have them fill out a Personal Bond form, walk the paperwork over to Pretrial Services and get a recommendation then head down for a judge’s signature. I can even waive magistration in most cases so your loved one doesn’t have to wait to see a judge. Only a lawyer can waive magistration!

When you hire a bondsman, you’re typically paying a premium of 10% of the bond amount, along with collateral and co-signers, depending on the charge and the amount of the bond. Once that money is paid, it is gone forever. You don’t get it back. When you hire me for a jail release, I will quote you a flat fee up front, and will accept payment over the phone. Further, I will apply any money you pay for the jail release to your subsequent legal fees on the new charge. If I am unable to obtain the jail release for you, then I will let you know that information up front and give you direction from there.

  • "He was very personable."

    I reached out to Will after finding his name through a Google search. I was not looking for DWI consultation but for unpaid tickets and a suspended license issue. He was very personable on the phone, and he listened to me explain what I needed help with. He didn't rush the call or make me feel like another dollar in his pocket. I was able to resolve my issues because of the information Will provided. If needed, Will will be the first lawyer I contact to help me with my driving issues because he was so helpful in this case.

  • "He helped me take care of my case and I could not be happier."
    I had charges filed on me and had no idea what I was going to do. I contacted Will Mitchell’s law office and immediately felt better. Will talked to me on the phone and told me what to expect for the next 4 months. Everything he said was on point. He helped me take care of my case and I could not be happier. I highly recommend Will and his team.

    Well what can I say that everyone else hasn’t said?! Very glad to have found Will Mitchell. Will and his staff are highly professional and will handle your case promptly and efficiently. Mitchell knows the system and how to guide you through it all. While I intend on avoiding anymore run-ins with the law in the future, I definitely would recommend his services to anyone else who might need help.

  • "I carry his card on me, because I believe in him and trust him."
    After being arrested for DWI, it is easy to feel lost, scared, confused, and unsure of where to turn for help. Luckily, I was recommended the legal services of Will Mitchell. From the initial consultation until my final court appearance, Will was there for me throughout the entire process. In a very frightening time, Will was able to put me at ease and guide me through a difficult situation. Due to his expertise and dedication, he was able to lessen my charge to a much more favorable outcome. I had multiple consultations before I was directed towards Will, and they all resulted in frustration, fear, and intimidation. I, like many Austin residents, work in the Service Industry, and was not financially able to afford much more than a public defender. His services are invaluable, but reached at a reasonable, flexible rate. I carry his card on me, because I believe in him and trust him.
