When a judge posts the bail amount, it is typically too expensive for a defendant or their family to pay. If the family cannot afford to pay the full amount for bail they need to see a bail bond agent. A bail bond agent or agency can create a surety bond, which guarantees the full amount to the court if the defendant decides to "jump bail". This guarantee will allow the defendant can get released from jail until their trial date. The State of California requires all bail bond agents and agencies to be registered and certified. Our agency is a California State certified bail bond agency. For more information, we can be reached at 310-205-0592.
