Bill was amazing. Got out of jail in less than 24 hours and had my case dismissed that day. Real life saver and excellent communication to my spouse and parents the whole time. Even in the middle of the night. Would recommend Mr. Knox in a heartbeat and although I hope to never have a need to hire a criminal defense attorney if I did Mr Knox would be my first call.

Where are Collin County Bail Bonds Posted & How Does This All Work?
The Collin County, Texas Sheriff’s Department is located at 4300 Community Avenue in McKinney, Texas 75071. The current Sheriff is Terry Box and his unit is in charge of the county jail. All Collin County bail bonds are processed through the Collin County Sheriff’s Department. Current Collin County inmates may be searched on the Collin County inmate list.
Cash bonds may be paid in full at The Collin County Sheriff’s Department in place of Collin County bail bonds. However, if you do not have the full amount needed to post a cash bond as it is set by a magistrate, you may seek the assistance of a Collin County bail bonds man or an attorney who may post Collin County bail bonds.
Generally, you will only pay a portion of the entire bond to a Collin County bail bonds man. For instance, if a loved one is being held in the Collin County jail and the Collin County bail bond is set at $10,000 by a magistrate, you would probably be charged somewhere between 10% to 20% of the bond by a local bonding company. The fee charged on Collin County bail bonds is called the bond premium. This fee is generally non-refundable, as essentially you are borrowing $10,000 from the Collin County bail bonds company and paying interest on their money. Look at this as a loan on the full amount of the bond. Instead of you having to come up with $10,000, the Collin County bail bonds company is loaning you the money and is simply charging interest on their money. This is how Collin County bail bonds companies make their money and why they exist.
