California Bail Bond Information

You should be aware that bail is a regulated industry.  Like any industry, there are some bail agents that will operate outside of the law. 

Be sure that you’re dealing with a licensed bail bondsman.  In California you can check the status of a bail agent’s license at the California Department of Insurance website. 

The fee for a bail bond is set by law. Anyone offering you a rate significantly lower than 10% is either acting illegally or is going to put you on a payment plan for the balance. 

You should also know that it is illegal for a bail agent to solicit your business.  If you receive a call from a bondsman indicating that someone you know has been arrested, ask who gave them your information. The arrestee may have contacted the bondsman and requested assistance.  But, if the caller tells you that they obtained your information online or from the police station, they are likely acting illegally. 

Similarly, a bail bondsman cannot solicit your business in the jail or in front of the jail.  If you have a situation where a bondsman is contacting you and you’re not sure if it’s legal or not, feel free to contact another bail agent.  We’re always here to help and give you information.

"I wanted to let you know what excellent service your agents provided my daughter and myself. They were kind and efficient and made a very distressful situation a little easier to deal with. From the time I contacted your office (at 5:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning), until Mark was able to post the bond, everyone was professional, yet caring. My daughter was finally released from the Van Nuys jail at 6:15 p.m. During the entire process, Mark communicated and updated me frequently throughout the day. He even called me to make sure that everything had gone smoothly after he posted the bond."
