Bail bondsmen generally charge a nonrefundable fee of approximately 10% to 15% of the total bail amount. When you hire an attorney, the bail premium can be lowered to 8%, or, in some cases, to 7% - because bail bondsmen are permitted to charge lower premiums to clients who hire attorneys. This is why it is essential that you learn if bail may be eliminated or reduced before taking action.
