When searching for a Contra Costa bail bondsman, you want to find someone who can give you the best possible price. You may seen companies that offer “cheap” or “discounted” bail. It may be tempting to sign a contract with them, but we urge you to reconsider.
To offer cheap bail, typically seen at 5%, is illegal. The California Department of Insurance has set the bar for the bail bond premium in order to protect the public. The bail fee in Contra Costa and throughout California is 10%.
We know that the expense of a bail bond is unexpected and you want to find the cheapest way to help. But consider this: if that “discount” bondsman is willing to act outside the law in this case, what other illegal methods do they practice? Will they revoke the bond for no reason? Will they refuse to return your collateral?
