Life Get's Scary:


My phone vibrates on the nightstand. It’s 1:30 am. With a slow groggy slap I try to turn off what I think is the alarm. It’s not an alarm, someone is calling. Who would be calling in the middle of the night? My eyes are practically sealed shut I’m so tired, I take the call. A trembling voice whispers through the line, it’s my son, he sounds scared. Something bad has happened. He’s in jail!           

Suddenly I’m sitting upright in bed, my heart is pounding, and my bones feel like ice. My voice wavers even more than my son’s. He assures me he’s okay, but he needs help. He didn’t want to call, he’s sorry, but if he misses another day of work he’s going to be fired. I had no idea things had gotten so bad, I’m shaking all over. Listening to him talk, I hear that little boy; the boy who asked for forgiveness when he broke the window, who apologized for fighting with his sister and picked her flowers from the yard, the boy who asked for money so he could do right by his girlfriend and his own little son. He's a man now, but I hear that boy asking again, this time he is asking - Please bail me out. I would do anything for him, I will do anything I can. I’ll get him out.             

"It’s 1:38 am, and I’m on my phone in bed, trying to find bail."

I don’t know the first thing about this. There’s a bunch of companies that come up. The first one has a few good reviews, I call them. No one answers. The second one looks okay, but the woman on the phone is rude and condescending… I feel like she’s accusing me for raising a son who was thrown in jail. I can hear it in her voice, the judgement and annoyance.             


How Things Should Be:


The third call is a warm voice, an agent tells me everything is going to be okay, that they’ll have my son out in no time. That voice is the first confident thing I’ve heard or felt during my mad rush. I can tell the agent has done this a thousand times, but I can also tell that he wants to help. He’s patient, and walks me through the whole process. Finally, I realize my hands are no longer shaking, and my voice must have been shaking too because the agent says. “See, I told you everything is going to be okay.” And I believe him. He meets me at the jail first thing in the morning. I’m a wreak, but the agent looks energized. He sits me down with a warm smile and we go through the paperwork.             

My son is out in a few hours, and hugging him feels just like picking him up when he’d fallen off his bike as a kid. I tell him I’ll always be there to pick him up when he falls down, no matter what… and I can see in his face a relief that makes the entire night of stress melt away in an instant.             

The agent says he’s going to stay at the jail, he’s got more people to help. My son and I thank the agent, and go back our lives - a little shaken, but a little bit closer too.

A Sad Truth:


More often than not the above story couldn’t be farther from the truth. Finding a good bail agency is actually really hard. A quick search online will show a DOZEN different bondsmen or agencies. How can you tell if they’re trustworthy? Reviews are mixed, or just seem too good be true. Some people love them, others report on the terrible experience they’ve had.             

Scams and predatory bondsmen who charge hidden fees or aggressively pursue payment are an unfortunate reality. It’s agencies like this who have given the bail industry a bad reputation. Even though there are many predatory bail agents, there are still good agencies out there.             

"For every 1 good agency out there, there are 10 who are trying to make a quick buck."

Sounds bad right? Despite this, there is still 10% of bondsmen who are in this for the right reason. They’re in it because they’re passionate about helping good people in bad situations. But you’re not going to call 10 bondsmen at 1 in the morning until you find that agency are you? You’re going to call the first three you find online, and unfortunately, the good agencies aren’t always on the top.             

"We help people find agents that they can trust."


Not All Agencies Are Equal: 


After working with agents across the country for many years we've learned that not all agencies are created equal. Many agents use predatory tactics like lowball offers and bait and switch. They don't provide you with the full story, they don't educate you on the process, and they will be very aggressive about payment.             

"How do you know if an agency is honest?"

How do you know they'll provide you with what you need? In today's online atmosphere even disreputable and downright scammy agents can pay for advertisements or manipulate search engines to appear on top. If you can't turn to the internet to find a reputable bondsman, where can you go? Chances are you can't, or you just don't want to ask friends or family about bail agents.
