Bond hearings at the detention center are held daily (up to three times a day) and can be a defendant’s first, and best, chance to get out of jail.  Our firm routinely represents defendants at their initial bond hearing as well as at bond reduction hearings.

For defendants who are being held in other South Carolina county jails or by the Federal Government, please call our office without delay.  Our staff is experienced in working with the agencies who operate the correctional facilities and local jails in South Carolina and can usually locate a defendant and ascertain relevant and critical information regarding the charges and bond status quickly.

The sooner you retain the services of a competent attorney, the better the chances of a defendant getting out of jail.
