Why have me post the bail bond for your loved one and then represent them in their criminal matter? Answer: I apply 5% of your bail bond to the attorneys fees. In Tarrant County, bail bondsmen generally charge 10% of the total bond to get you out of jail, so if bail is set at $10,000, they will charge you $1000 or more. I will also charge you $1000, but $500 will go toward your attorneys fees. In effect, this saves you $500. Why pay more?
