After spending 9 days in jail and thinking there was no possible way i would be able to bond out. Nicole at moncrief answered my prayers. I was sitting in jail talking to a friend of mine who told me he was a few hundred dollars short and was having trouble finding the time to get up to cocoa to post my bond. I thought for sure i would be sitting for atleast a few more days, if not indefinitely. The following morning, I was called for release. Upon getting out, my friend and I had no idea who posted my bond. He said he hadn't had a chance to see a bondsman or come up with the full amount. Come to find out, on just my friends word that he would come by the next morning to sign and make a partial payment, nicole had posted my bond that night. Not only did they save me from who knows how much longer in that S-hole of a jail but they are also very nice people to deal with. They are also very highly spoken of in the jail. Normally i wouldn't take any recommendations from people in jail. In this case, they really knew what they were talking about. If it weren't for Moncrief Bail bonds, I'd still be in there today.
Alright this company did what they were supposed to do, they got our friend out of jail, with the 10% down and the remainder on a collateral check. Although I am a little upset with them because they processed the collateral check without of knowing until it had processed. This happened because the friend that was bailed out missed his court date but he turned himself in. Well the courts didnt notify the bail bonds about this so they went through and cashed the check. The situation has been resolved and the money will be credited to our account but this can take up to a week to have the money back. So until then we are out the entire ammount of the original bail. I think that the bail bonds should have check up on the situation with the courts before processing the collateral, because if that one little phone call would have been made none of this would have happened and we wouldn't be having to pay the $140 dollars worth of fees associated with the check processing without our knowledge. They are not going to reimburse of these fees and the bank will not either since it was not a bank error.
I would recommend All Star Bail Bonds. Mike is very helpful and down to earth. He explained the process in full and put my mind at ease. You never have a problem with them answering the phone. They are very helpful, polite and efficient. Everyone I encountered were professional and did not make the process an embarrassing one. I hope I never need these services again but if I do All Star Bail Bonds will be my first and only choice.
