If you or someone you know has been locked up and charged with a criminal offense under the New Jersey Criminal Code, we can assist them at their bail hearing, help them get removed from jail, and prepare them for their court appearances.
There have been massive reforms in New Jersey to rules governing bail and pretrial release. If you have been charged with a criminal offense in New Jersey, the determination of bail is a critical step in your case.
In New Jersey, prior to January 1, 2017, the bail process was usually set at a dollar amount coinciding with the severity of the crime or denied by a judge. The amended New Jersey bail reform bill “the New Jersey Bail Reform and Speed Trial Act” has replaced the dollar amount or monetary release system (asking for the defendant to post a set amount of money) and replaced with a non-monetary risk assessment.
