Testimonials

Highly recommend them for anyone in a situation that's needing a bondsman/woman. Even at 4am they always responded quickly and they actually care, not just in it for the money. Mrs.Karen is AMAZING!!! She was so helpful every step of the way, and twice she could have collected money from me instead of giving me different information and took my money, but instead she did what would be in my best interest rather than the interest of their company. I absolutely love her. If you're looking for a responsive, helpful, trustworthy, and Caring company to get a bond thru you definitely need to come to them.

Jon Handler is by far the best bondsman this county has ever had. I been bonded out twice and there's no one that compares to his service. Not even a hundred years ago. I swear he's the best. Probably in the country! I thank you for not only helping me but helping my family to get me out. With out you I would probably would've coped out and had a couple extra charges just cause the state stay isn't worth my proven innocents. Best bondsman in the world....I swear to god!

I have used this company 2 times now and they only get better and better. Both experiences were outstanding. You feel very welcomed when you go, and never rushed or judged. They truly are the best! I wouldn't use anyone else and I happily recommend them to anyone needing a bail bondsman. Thank you for always being there!!

If you are arrested and accused of a crime, you may have to spend time in jail until your court appearance. Your other option is to post bail via a bail bond. Most localities have bail schedules which specify bail amounts for some common crimes. Schedules vary widely according to locality, type of crime, and residency.
