I may be able to help you get them out.

I may be able to obtain their release from jail. I will go to the Travis County jail to fill out the necessary paperwork on your behalf, obtain a personal recognizance bond or cash deposit bond.
Avoid Bail Bond Services
As an attorney, I offer more options, and often at less expense than a bail bondsman.
Once you’ve contracted with my firm, I’m allowed by law to execute a personal or cash deposit bond on your behalf and obtain your friend or loved one’s pre-trial jail release pursuant to the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, section 17.

Travis County Jail Release Lawyer
The Arrest & Jail Release Process
In Travis County, a person who has been arrested and is in custody of the Austin Police Department (or other Travis County law enforcement agency that is lawfully authorized to make arrests) is transferred to the central booking office located in the Blackwell-Thurman Criminal Justice Center, 509 West 11th Street, Austin, Texas 78701.
The police officer will submit a probable cause affidavit, which states why the officer had reason to believe that a crime was committed. The police officer must turn in that probable cause affidavit within 24 hours of a misdemeanor arrest, or 48 hours after a felony arrest. Once the magistrate or judge reviews the probable cause affidavit, he or she will determine if there was probable cause for the police officer to make the arrest, and if so, will set bail. Then the person arrested will meet with the judge or magistrate, usually within 24 hours of the bond being set.
I can obtain a copy of this probable cause affidavit as soon as possible and review it prior to meeting with you, in most cases. Also, in most instances I can approach the magistrate or judge on your behalf and waive the magistration process which can sometimes take up to several hours, delaying the time your friend or loved one is released from jail.
Hiring a Travis County bail bondsman?
Attorney Jackson F. Gorski offers faster & cheaper jail release services.
If you are trying to get a friend or loved one out of jail in Austin or Travis County, I can assist you in locating that person by conducting an inmate search, then by obtaining a personal bond with the court so that person may be released. I may be able to save you time and money by handling this procedure for you, instead of having to use a bail bondsman’s services. On top of that, you will still need to retain an attorney to represent your friend or loved one in the pending criminal case once they are out of jail. I will not charge an extra fee for bonding or jail release, nor do I require collateral and co-signors so long as you have contracted with my firm.
All jail release fees will apply toward legal representation.

In addition to criminal cases, I also handle any civil proceedings that may arise from an arrest, such as administrative license revocation hearings or civil forfeiture suits.
