COVID Bail Out NYC Attorney Referrals
DISCLAIMER: We are not a bail fund. COVID Bail Out NYC is a 100% volunteer-run, emergency grassroots collective of individuals and organizations. Find out more about us here:

FRIENDS AND FAMILY: Thank you for reaching out to us. Please ask your loved one's attorney to fill out this form. We understand your concern but it is much easier for us if an attorney/member of their team fills this out.

ATTORNEYS: Please provide us with more information about your client using the form below. All people are eligible, regardless of the charges being faced. Please note that if your client's bail is over $10,000, a partially secured surety bond would likely be the most feasible option for us to post bail; however, you will need to provide a signer for the PSSB, such as a friend or family member with steady income. If you think you have a candidate for a signer, please fill out this form as well:

Regardless of bail amount, having a credit card bail option (preferably in the amount of the cash bail) is incredibly helpful. Please contact your assigned judge/court attorney and ADA to request this option if not available. We're happy to send you a template to do so!

Please note that we have a large volume of referrals and we are currently prioritizing clients who are medically vulnerable. We're working to get back to you as soon as possible.
