I've never needed a bonding company, but I do know two people who have used this company several times for her son and I have a cousin who has used this company to get out of jail while awaiting trial. Both have told me the service is fast and confidential. The agents are friendly and professional unlike many other bail bonding services. The agents also know things about local procedures and can tell you what to expect in court. If your bond is large, they have worked out payment plans for my friend's son once and my cousin even put it on his credit card.
Bail bonding agents here charge 10 percent of the amount of the bond. For example, if your bond is $10,000, you'll have to pay $1,000. This isn't cheap, but it beats sitting in the county jail for three or four months or longer, in my opinion.
