San Antonio Bail Bond Attorney Offers Legal Advice on New Blog
Leading criminal defense firm, Law Offices of Jesus R. Lopez, offers helpful advice to people facing criminal charges in the Bexar County area.
Law Offices of Jesus R. Lopez, a trusted leading criminal defense firm in San Antonio, Texas recently released a new blog outlining what a person facing a criminal charge can expect from the arrest to the verdict. The blog aims to provide a clear and concise explanation of the bail bond process from the basics of contacting a bail agent, collateral, getting released from jail, and what to do leading up to the court date.

“The key to obtaining the most favorable outcome is to seek legal counsel as early as possible,” Attorney Jesus Lopez explains. “Unless a person is trained in the complexities of the law, they are unlikely to adequately defend themselves.” Even if you do have some degree of responsibility for the charges, pleading guilty or simply accepting a plea bargain offer may not be the best step to take.
When a person faces a crisis, they need someone in their corner to focus completely on obtaining the most favorable outcome. “It’s our goal to help people get through the situation with either a complete dismissal or the most lenient sentence possible.”
Another mistake people often make when faced with a criminal charge is to try to explain the situation to police, or panic and sign statements without first consulting an attorney. Law enforcement is looking for a solution to a case, and they may not perceive your statements in the same way in which you intend them. “This is in no way an indictment against law enforcement,” Lopez continues. “It’s simply a fact that the investigating officers are not responsible for representing your best interests.”
Language barriers are another difficult hurdle for some people charged with a crime. Statements made by someone for whom English is a second language may be completely misunderstood by investigators, and no one should ever accept a plea or sign a statement without a competent legal representative who can communicate in the person’s native tongue. This is why its helpful to have an attorney, like Jesus Lopez, who is fluent in Spanish.
Being charged with a crime is a life-altering event; therefore, finding competent legal representation can help mitigate the impact on your life. “If you are charged with a crime,” Lopez concludes, “Don’t go at it alone. Get help so you can move forward and put the incident behind you as quickly as possible”.”
