Not every person who gets arrested is a terrible criminal out to harm humanity.
It is important to remember even the nicest people make mistakes and can land in jail. Bail in America underscores the presumption innocent and that is why it is a Constitutional right.
Most people who contact us just want to get their loved one out of custody so the defendant can take the right step to correct his or her mistake like a responsible citizen or show they’re innocent.
Do we meet some interesting people during the bail process? Absolutely!
We could tell you some stories, but we never will because we respect the confidentiality of our clients. I can say we have bailed out people that you have probably read about in the tabloids and press but mostly we meet people like those who sit next to you in temple or church.
Our bail clients are people like your parents, your kids and your grandparents. Our comment to each other at the end of many days is: 'that was the nicest family . . .'
