If a defendant cannot post bail due to financial difficulties, he or she can hire a bondsman to help him.

In exchange for this service, the bondsman charges 10% of the bail amount as his fee. It cannot be refunded.

The Most Disrespectful People I have Yet to meet! Very Unprofessional! The man uses harsh language and began to use curse words with me! I Am A Business Major and currently run my own Business so when I say I don't understand how he could talk and treat a potential client in such a rude manner! This company needs to take Management courses on how to Do their Job! No Morals at All! We are all the Same People and should be treated as such whether you are providing a service or receiving a service !
