Customer Question
My son was locked...

My son was locked up on 5/18 and there are no charges on his record yet, but they will not offer him a bond. His court date was on 5/25 at 1pm. when we got to court we were told that they had moved his court time to 9am and we were not notified. then we were told that there was a continuance for 6/15 which means he will be locked up almost a month with no charges. what can I do to get him released?

Lawyer's Assistant: What was your son charged with exactly? Are there any upcoming court dates?

I am not sure what he is charged with. when I look online it just has no bond and the next court date is 6/15.

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

Illinois

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Thats all I have

I'm sorry to hear about your son's situation.

Do you know whether he was brought before a judge for a bond hearing 24-48 hours following his arrest?

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
