Austin Jail Release Lawyer

You can get help with an Austin jail release immediately. When time is of the essence and you are concerned about your loved one, calling an Austin jail release lawyer at Tillman Braniff could be the fastest way to locate them and get them out of jail.

For a large segment of society, the thought of actually being arrested and taken to jail is something they have never really considered. There are also many people who will go their entire lives without being arrested, but know a friend or family member who has gone to jail, at least temporarily. I am no exception. When someone in or near Austin is arrested, he or she is taken to the Travis County Jail, which is run by the Travis County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's deputies are in charge of booking/printing/photographing those who are arrested, and ultimately getting them in front of a magistrate who will set a bond. Once the bond is set, you can begin the process of an Austin jail release.

FIRST, see if your arrested person has been booked into the Travis County Jail. The arrest and booking process can take hours, but you can check the Travis County Jail Inmate Finder here for updates:

Travis County Jail Inmate Finder

This page will provide you with important information (please write it down): the person's booking number, the charge (either felony or misdemeanor), the cause number of the criminal case, and the person's bond amount. If you find them through that search, you know they are in the Austin jail, under the control of the Travis County Sheriff's Office. If not, they may either still be waiting to be booked in to the system (again, it may take a while) or they may have been arrested by another county's officers or police, like Williamson County. An Austin jail release lawyer can help you find an arrested person when it is unclear where they are in jail.

THE SECOND STEP for an Austin jail release is to contact an Austin jail release lawyer who can try to arrange for personal bond or cash-deposit bond. In Austin, criminal attorneys are permitted to do jail releases similar to bail bondsmen, and they can also negotiate terms of release with a magistrate or judge. What's more, while a bail bondsman cannot act until after a bond is set (i.e., until you see a magistrate), an Austin jail release lawyer can start an Austin jail release immediately by approaching the judge and waiving the magistration process, essentially moving the bond to the front of the line. Using a criminal attorney for an Austin jail release is often the fastest way to secure a friend or loved one's freedom.

(If the arrest was not in Travis County, contact the sheriff's office in the county where the person was arrested to get jail release information. Then call our office to see if we can assist you in getting the person released ourselves or with a local bail bond agency. )

Bail bondsmen generally charge a fee of around 10% of the bond amount, which is only to secure jail release. Once out of jail, the arrested person must still hire an Austin criminal attorney for the charge.  In many other counties, such as Williamson County, Hays County and Bastrop County, bail bondsmen are the only ones authorized to arrange for jail release. If your friend or loved one was arrested in Williamson, Hays, Bastrop, Caldwell, Blanco, Burnet, or some other county, we may still be able to assist you in finding bondsmen to get your person out of jail.

Important - If the arrest was very recent, the Travis County Jail website may not have information posted yet. Contacting an Austin Jail Release Lawyer can significantly speed up the jail release process, and get your friend or relative released from jail as quickly as possible.  Call us 24 hours a day, any day, to see how we can help, at 512 236 0505.

Plan for Your Austin Jail Release

In some instances, our clients have an idea that they are going to be arrested because they have been under investigation or the police were called after an incident. If you think that you will be arrested in the near future, call us. We can speak with you ahead of time, you can retain our legal services, and we can create a plan for processing your Austin jail release if necessary. This way, if you are being arrested, you can ask someone near you to call our office and let us know so we can locate you and begin to arrange for your release. This level of preparation is not available to everyone, but if you do plan ahead, it can ensure that the process goes more smoothly and faster than if you wait to contact us until after the fact.

Bail Is a Constitutional Right

Both in the United States Constitution and the Texas Constitution, bail is a right because of the fact that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. That means that if you know someone who has been arrested, they should qualify for an Austin jail release after our assistance or after making bail. In the rare event that someone you care for is not granted bail, you need a criminal attorney’s help immediately. We are familiar with these scenarios and can assist you with bail reduction procedures in court. If this has just happened to someone you care for, it is not too late to hire an Austin jail release lawyer to help with the case.

Secure an Austin Jail Release for Family Reasons

As Austin attorneys, we have many clients with families. We understand that getting arrested can be devastating for those with family responsibilities. Parents who were watching the children no longer can. Those providing for the family can no longer work. It becomes a complicated and devastating situation. Losing a job is a real possibility after an arrest. This is why we need to get you or your loved one out of jail quickly so those obligations and daily life do not suffer.

Call for an Expedited Austin Jail Release

To get started, contact Tillman Braniff at (512) 236-0505 or contact us HERE. We can help locate your loved one and begin to work on their release immediately. Jail is no picnic, and it is unwise to let anyone you care about stay in jail any longer than necessary. Working with our law firm will help you get them home where they belong.

I hired Brian Tillman to represent my beloved niece when she got mixed up with drugs, when everyone in the family was saying, “let her go, ie, deal with a court appointed attorney, if it’s meth she’s beyond help, don’t throw your money away”. But I knew Lisa, and knew she could turn her life around.I found the legal fees to be very reasonable, and I deeply appreciated the payment plan.I am very pleased with the outcome. I think her relapse while on probation (after getting detoxed and spending a month at a rehab center in Dallas, sigh)was the best thing that could have happened.A couple weeks in Travis County Jail made her realize that she did not like jail, and never ever wanted to go to jail again.She graduated the SMART program last fall and got a spot in a sober living house, and a job that she really likes and is very good at (refurbishing electronics). She has gotten three raises and two promotions in less than a year. I co-signed on a car loan for her. She celebrated a year’s sobriety in March, and has paid off all her probation fees.She’s happy and healthy, and I firmly believe she would not have been able to accomplish these things without expert legal counsel and advice given by Brian Tillman.Happy Father’s Day, Brian! You’re a good dad and a good father figure to many.I hope you get some good BBQ and beer and relaxing on Sunday.

I've had an extremely rough two years. After the loss of a 14-year-old son, and my mother just over a year later, I felt beat down. Adding to that stress, was some issues that we're looming over me, creating a sense chaos and anxiety to my life that was hard to deal with. I found Brian Tillman through a friend that recommended him to me. I sat down with Brian at his office and felt that for the first time in those two years, someone took the time to not only hear me, but empathize with me regarding my circumstances. The process was long and confusing, it wasn't by our choosing, but Brian was extremely communicative and knowledgeable through the whole process and made sure that I knew everything that was going on. He stayed on top of my case, and after a sometime of dealing with it, both of my cases we're dismissed - which was the outcome that we were expecting. He understood the looming anxiety that I was experiencing and every time I felt frustrated, angry and discouraged, Brian was there with a word of encouragement and a "Hang in there" when I truly needed it. It was good to hear that from my attorney, he helped get me through some pretty rough times. I have zero issues in recommending Brian Tillman as your attorney, he truly cares, he'll do right by you. I can't thank him enough.I would say, I'd definitely use him again, but I sure as hell hope I dont have to, but...if I do, he's definitely my guy.

This is a guy you want representing you, in my time of unjust incarceration, Brian stepped in to protect me. He provided information, advice, and made sure to answer all my questions 100% so I was certain of my options. Brian proved me innocent, he saved an innocent young professional from our Justice System, and I 5/5 would recommended him for your defense.

Brian Tillman was very friendly and informative. I called for advise and possibly to hire him. He answered the first time, called me back when he said he would and gave all the information I was looking for and also gave me great advice. Based on his advise I didn't end up using his firm and with that knowledge he still called me back and emailed me all the information I needed. What a nice helpful guy!Thank you Brian and you can bet I will keep your number around.Charlie

This guy is the one you befriend at a BBQ and establish true genuine trust with professional care and understanding. I was able to beat my case with the best possible outcome and given my line of work where travels are high, I only had to appear in court once. Brian is reasonably priced and personable,(he maintains contact via his cell phone...seriously this guy will make you feel like your father is lawyer and goes out of his way to get things done. My friend parked his car into someone's living room and Brian was able to get a lot of charges reduced or dropped WITH the possibility of it never showing on record.Don't play around with your life...Hire this guy, he gets it DONE!!!

Rhett Braniff was the right lawyer at the right time. I was impressed with his quick grasp of my situation, knowledge of what I needed to do, and his availability to answer my questions. I felt in good hands. I have found Rhett to be honest and have integrity. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Rhett Braniff.

Mr. Tillman and his staff were extremely friendly, accommodating, and profesional while still fighting for the best outcome! My case was an open and shut one for the prosecutors, but Mr. Tillman remained cool, calm and collected as we waited out the other side for a better deal. He took the time to get to know me, conveyed who I was to the prosecution, in which got me a lesser charge! If you are someone who is scared out of their mind about going to court, Mr. Tillman will explain everything, and make a bad situation seem winnable. I'm extremely thankful that he stood up for me and helped me navigate these overwhelming waters. If he hadn't, a lot of doors I'm still trying to open would not be opened for me.

I was referred to these two rockstar attorneys through a license attorney in Houston, and I have to say that it was by far the best decision I ever made. Brian Tillman and Rhett Braniff are two of the most knowledgeable and compassionate Criminal Defense Attorneys I've ever met. I had actually stumbled across their website and had read various posts on their blogs before getting referred to them, and one of the posts had stood out to me. It was a post about hiring a defense attorney and how important it is that you and the attorney mesh well, so to say. That couldn't be more true. I had found myself in a hellacious predictiment that required the utmost level of care. I had spoken with numerous attorneys before meeting with Brian and Rhett and I learned more from them in my initial consult than I had in all my other conversations combined in regards to the law and what the State of Texas could and could not do. I felt reassured that no matter what, they would have my best interest at heart and that practicing law was more than just a payday for them. I couldn't have been more pleased with the sincerity and compassion they showed me towards my situation. I truly felt like they would fight for me which is what I've needed because at the end of the day and after all is said and done, I'm the one that has to live with the outcome not them. I gained a friend through this process and I'm greatful for the care and attention they showed me and my situation. The only regret I have is that I didn't hire them sooner. I currently live in a different city now and had a friend who had ended up with a Dwi, and after listening to what he has said about the attorney he hired, I wished Tillman Braniff would have been handeling his case cause I'm absolutely sure the outcome would have been very different. I highly recommend contacting their firm if you or anyone you know has any legal issue in Central Texas. It will be the best thing you can do for yourself or loved one.

Okay. Lawyers have a bad reputation I know. Most often they get hated on because they exploit the fact that we know little about the law and we are in dire straits scared. Most of the time lawyers inflate charges and prolong cases which incurs extra costs for their benefit.However, not Tillman. This guy is upstanding!For our family, we hired him because my son got into some trouble as a teenager a while back and left the state before finishing out the conditions of his dismissal agreement. I know. What an idiot move. Well, years later, the seemingly small case was refiled in family violence court and a warrant had been issued for my son's arrest! (We had no idea and found out when he went to try signing into the military)Of all the lawyers we contacted Tillman was the MOST knowledgeable and charged the LEAST! I know. We were lucky. Anyway, right away Tillman moved on the case and resolved the case with the best possible outcome.We are grateful that Tillman was familiar with the type of case my son had, that he listened to what we needed, and acted in ways that demonstrated he meant to advocate on my son's behalf. For instance, he arranged it so my son didn't have to appear in court which in turn preserved his job, and Tillman kept us abreast of any changes or continuances via text and email and attachments.Now, my son has all but satisfied the conditions and the case will be dismissed soon, for good this time, but Tillman leading us through all the jargon and warning us of the pitfalls really made all the difference. I think he just has good intentions.Real talk. Hire this guy. End of story.

I would highly recommend Tillman-Braniff. Brian Tillman helped me out a lot when I didn't know how the whole processed worked. He even worked with me on payment and helped me get paperwork long after the case ended.

Brian was a terrific lawyer, he helped me regarding my domestic violence incident and when I first reached out to him, he immediately made time to talk to me in his busy schedule. He made me feel like I was being understood and he had a clear method to handle my case. He also met me in person early on a Saturday morning and was completely willing to meet based on my schedule. Brian is a lawyer that gets things done in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I am so grateful I chose to hire Brian Tillman to handle my cases. Facing criminal charges is undoubtedly extremely challenging, but Brian made me feel quite at ease. He guided me through every step of the process, advised me on possible outcomes, and provided excellent results. While under Brian's counsel, he was able to provide the most desirable outcome beyond what I could have imagined while facing two DWI charges. He made himself available to answer any and all questions I had regarding the legal process and has continued to offer guidance to me during my probational period. Brian made certain my quality of life did not diminish throughout this process. If you are looking for an attorney to not only handle your case with professionalism, but also take your personal goals into consideration while negotiating with the court, I strongly believe Brian Tillman is the attorney for you.
