Bond Hearings

Bond Hearings in Richmond

Providing high-quality legal representation in Richmond, VA

If you have been arrested for a crime which could put you behind bars, you may have to go to a bond hearing where your bond amount is set. At Throop Law, we are familiar with the way local prosecutors and judges handle criminal offenses in the commonwealth of Virginia. We know what factors judges look at when they are deciding the amount of your bail, or whether a "no bond status" should be set. You can rely on our Richmond criminal defense attorneys to educate you on your rights and options, as well as your responsibilities, once bail has been set.

Providing a strong argument on your behalf

Our firm is not afraid to explore any possible avenue that can keep you out of jail or lower the bail amount. In fact, we pride ourselves on our ability to gather and present evidence which illustrates why you should not be kept in custody until trial. We proudly represent clients in bond hearings for all types of cases, from white collar crimes and theft crimes to DWI, assault, and drug crimes.

  • We can assist you with preparing evidence for your bond hearing, including:
  • Current ties to the community
  • Past criminal conduct, or lack thereof
  • Employment status
  • Family-provider (family's reliance on you)
  • Likelihood to show up to mandatory court dates
  • Suspicions of being a flight risk

Understanding the cost of bail bonds

The cost of bail bonds is typically a standard amount, based on previous determinations of similar offenses. However, some offenses are not included in the standard list, which means you may need an additional hearing. If you have been arrested, our criminal defense lawyers in Richmond are here to protect your rights at every step of the process. Early intervention is essential, and we are dedicated to doing everything in our power to protect your future.

Providing reliable representation at your hearing

It is vital that you do not go to your bond hearing without proper representation. Having a skilled Richmond criminal defense attorney on your side can make an incredible difference in the outcome of your bond hearing. You can rely on our firm to represent you at your hearing, and to pursue a low bond or to fight for a release on your behalf.
