    If you have an attorney, I suggest you ask your attorney this question. If you do not, consult an attorney as soon as possible. There are a number of avenues to pursue a bail reduction and you would be required to make a number of factual showings, which would require evidence of assets, liabilities, ties to the community, prior criminal history (or lack thereof), etc.

    It depends on the scheduling by the court. The hearing can be scheduled in a short period of time, up to a month or two. The actual hearing should take about 15-30 minutes, at most.

    After he has had a bail review hearing, which he should have had shortly after arrest, he has no right to another one, unless he can show a change of circumstances since the first one. Consider seeking a confidential consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney.

    He was not denied bail IF he has a $ 30,000 bail. He was denied a bail reduction. IF the lawyer files a motion, the hearing may be set in thirty days.
