We’d like to thank you for stopping by J & J Bail Bonds, serving Michigan for more than 20 years. During that time our bondsmen have provided thousands of bail bonds to people via our 17 locations across the state, delivering not only jail bonds but also information about how the process works.
When it comes to a bond agency, you might wonder how a person would choose one. After all, any city with a sizable jail will have a number of bail bond agents in the area. While we can’t speak for the other bail agents, we can tell you what you can expect from a J & J Bail Bonds location when you stop by. Let’s take a look.
When a person walks through the doors of one of our bail bond agencies, they’re usually here to get a bail bond for a friend or relative. In that case, they’re often in a harried state of mind. We’re certainly not going to judge the person who’s helping out a friend or relative, even if it’s 3:00 in the morning. They’ve been woken up in the middle of the night, presented with surprising information, and drug themselves out of bed so that they can help. They deserve respect, and that’s what they’ll get from our bail bond company.
Of course, some people are familiar with the process and are upset at the person in jail. While their emotion may be one of anger more than concern, they certainly don’t need us adding to their emotional turmoil. We do what we can to be as clinical and helpful as possible, offering a kind word if it seems appropriate.
In fact, it’s also not our place to judge the person who’s actually been arrested, because many people are wrongfully arrested and are innocent until proven guilty. Bail bonding should be a profession that respects everyone involved.
Many people who come to our bail bond company have never been in a bail bond agency before, and they might not have any idea of how the entire process works. They’re looking for someone who will not only treat them with respect but also a bondsman who will inform them regarding how the entire process works.
We know the ins and outs of the business. It’s our job, something we do all day, every day. We’re more than happy to walk someone through the process, because they most likely didn’t have the time to read through our page on how bail works before rolling out of bed to assist someone in need. We understand that our customers need to be educated about the process, and we’ll step them through the process. It usually takes less than 30 minutes, and after everything is signed we’ll take it from there.
Any bail bond agency that is serious about being in business will offer 24-hour bail bonds. While there are certainly people who stop by during the day (either because their friend was arrested during the day, or they couldn’t arrange to get into one of our locations until the next day), most bail bonds seem to be needed outside of what are considered “normal business hours.” That’s why we’re always open, ready to provide jail bonds to those who need them.
There are a couple of reasons why our locations are most often near the jail or courthouse. First of all, we’re doing a lot of “business” with those public establishments, so it just makes sense for us to be nearby. It also speeds up the process for those who are seeking bail and for those who are in jail. It also makes sense to be near the jail for simple business reasons; being nearby means that those who are visiting the jail will have a nearby opportunity to seek jail for the person they’re visiting.
We have bail bond service in Muskegon. Barry, Kent, Kalamazoo, Calhoun, Ottawa, Ionia, Montcalm, Ingham, Jackson, Gratiot, St. Joseph, Cass, Washtenaw, and Eaton, as well as our main office in Grand Rapids. In the end, what it all comes down to is convenience for our customer.
When you’re in need of a bail bond, we hope you’ll choose J & J Bail Bonds. We’re always open for you, and we’ll treat you with the utmost respect.
