The main Dallas County jail is the Lew Sterret Justice Center, located at 111 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75207. Information about finding a person incarcerated in the Dallas County Jail, visiting hours, posting bonds, etc..… can be found at www.dallascounty.org/jaillookup.

Our frequently asked questions page provides information regarding the posting of bonds. In addition, while an attorney can assist you in locating a reputable bondsman, we strongly suggest that you use a bondsman and NOT an attorney to post your bond. As we explain in this blog post, we believe that it creates an unethical conflict of interest when an attorney posts a client’s bond even though many attorneys are willing to do so to generate extra income. We strongly suggest that you avoid hiring any attorney who suggests that he or she also post their client’s bond.

We often get calls from persons represented by other attorneys because they are not updated on the progress of their cases. A quick way to find out about the status of your case and upcoming court appearance if you are charged with an offense in Dallas County or if you have a friend or relative in a Dallas County jail is through the Dallas County case lookup system (sometimes called the “JI55”).
