Always a defense attorney,
NEVER a prosecutor



Bond Motions

Arrested? Need to get out of jail, but the Bond Amount is too high or there is No Bond set in the case?

I can file a Bond Motion requesting the court to set a lower, more reasonable bond in your friend’s or family member’s case. Once hired, if formal charges (Information) have not been filed against the inmate, I can have the bond motion heard within 48 hours (2 days). The Bond Motion Hearing can not be set any sooner because I have to give the Judge, Prosecutor, and Clerk notice of the Bond Motion hearing. If an Information has been filed against your friend or family member, it will depend on the Judge’s schedule who is assigned the case, but I will get the quickest date possible.

After a citizen is arrested, they are brought before the Judge the next day to be informed of the charges against them, the bond amount, and whether probable cause exits to hold the citizen in jail. I can also attend an inmate’s First Appearance Hearing. If you hire me to represent the arrested citizen, I can request a bond at the First Appearance Hearing and there is no need to schedule a Bond Motion.

I can also file a motion to modify your bond conditions. Many times the Judge will place conditions on your release. Such as, “No Contact With The Alleged Victim” in a Domestic Violence case or not being allowed to leave the county. I can file a Bond Motion asking the court to remove or modify these, or any other condition, so that you may live at home or travel for work.

In order to get a reduced bond, the court will look at many factors, including:

  • Whether you are a resident of the county where you were arrested
  • Whether you own property in the county where you were arrested
  • Whether you have family members living in the community where you were arrested
  • Whether you are employed and the length of employment
  • You prior criminal record
  • The individual facts and circumstances of your case
  • The charge for which you have been arrested
  • Any other ties to the community you may have

Thomas Grajek is a great lawyer

After my husbands DUI, I met with a couple of lawyers but NONE were as attentive as Thomas Grajek. Thomas was able to beat the DUI charge that I thought would be impossible. Not only did he save us money, he also helped put our lives back. I would recommend Mr. Grajek to anyone in our situation. Thsnkd Tom!!!

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
