We Cannot Lower Bail but We Can Bail You Out Affordably

It is not often that a judge will reduce a person’s bail after setting it. The judge is the only person who can lower bail; not even a lawyer can lower a defendant’s bail. Although it is rare for bail to be reduced, it does happen. This was the case recently in a matter involving the police shooting of a Bay Area man.
