Bond Hearings Honesty. Integrity. Results.

Bond Hearing Attorney in Virginia Beach

Admission to Bail in Norfolk

Bond Hearings are usually the first hearing needed. At an arrest a person is brought before a Virginia Magistrate. An initial determination about bond is made. However, a Magistrate is forbidden from granting bond for certain offenses and oftentimes will deny bond for people with criminal records and other risk factors. If bond was denied, you need a bond hearing with a Judge. In most cases, you only get two opportunities at a bond. One is General District Court, and the second, if needed, is a Bond Appeal in Circuit Court. You need to make those opportunities count, with an experienced lawyer.

Bond is granted and a person is admitted to bail if the court is convinced that the person is not a danger to himself or others and is also not a flight risk. These hearings need to be handled carefully. This is not a trial on the merits, and the scope should be limited to the issues. Mistakes are costly. You only have a limited chance to get it right. Let’s present the case the best way we can. Let’s show stability at home, stability in employment, the weaknesses of the Commonwealth’s case against you. If there is a criminal record let’s make sure it is described accurately and not exaggerated.

The Issues for a Bond Hearing and a Bond Appeal are:

  • Danger to others
  • Danger to himself / herself
  • Flight risk
  • Weakness of the case
  • Lack of criminal Record
  • Age and type of previous criminal record
