Surrey Surety and Show Cause Hearing Law Firm
After you are arrested for a crime and taken into custody, the usual next step is a bail hearing, which happens within 24 hours of arrest. The bail hearing is where the judge decides whether you will be released and free until your trial, or if you will instead remain in custody. It is critical that you have an experienced lawyer to represent you at your bail hearing.
David Karp, a partner at one of Vancouver’s leading criminal defence law firms, represents clients at bail hearings across British Columbia. He has handled bail hearings for clients charged with a broad range of criminal offences, from theft to drug crimes to various violent crimes.
Giving Bail Hearings the Attention They Deserve
Some lawyers treat bail hearings (also known as show cause hearings) as some kind of routine matter. David Karp, on the other hand, treats them with seriousness. A successful bail hearing is your best chance to keep your freedom until your trial date.
David Karp is able to recommend a reliable, respected surety, who is responsible for ensuring that you meet the conditions of your bail. Mr. Karp’s ultimate goal at bail hearings is to get you a reasonable bail with reasonable conditions.
Why Bail Hearings Are So Important
It can take as long as a year to get a trial date in British Columbia. If a person is not granted bail, they are faced with the prospect of either pleading guilty or else sitting in jail while they await trial. Neither one of these options is suitable for many people. That is why David Karp works so hard to help his clients get bail and to have it set at a reasonable amount.
