His ability to provide bail bond service anywhere, anytime, and follow-through to resolution is evident to everyone involved with bail bond service in Martinez, Sacramento and San Francisco County.

Gary Stephenson, a 14-year Navy veteran former air traffic controller, became a licensed bail bonds agent in 1995, joining his brother Craig in the bail bonds business. He joined the bonding agency after a distinguished career with the US Navy, manning Naval Air Station towers: NAS Fallon, Nevada; NAS Lemoore, California; aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, home-ported in Alameda, California; and other duty stations around the world, as well as serving in Desert Storm. Gary brings the discipline and dedication of his military training to his career as a bail bondsman. Born and raised in Roseville, California, Gary has been married over 20 years, with three boys, two dogs (a Vizsla and a Lab mix), a warm, friendly family life in Sacramento, and a compassionate approach to helping those who need bail. As an experienced bail bondsman, Gary keenly knows the California courts and jails, the California Criminal Court System, the latest laws in relation to the arena of bail bonds, local police departments and criminal attorneys, and knows how to help people bail out of jail quickly, easily, and without red tape

Bail FAQs

How does Bail work?
The judges of each county set bail amounts for each offense and publish a Bail Schedule. When a person is arrested and booked into the jail a Deputy will utilize the bail bonds schedule to determine the bail amount required for a defendant's release.

What is a Bail Bond?
A bail bond is an Insurance Policy that is posted at the jail for the release of a person from custody. The bond is held by the court and is guaranteed by Contra Costa Bail Bonds and the individual(s) paying for bail (Indemnitor/Co-signer). The Bail Bonds Agency guarantees to the court that the defendant will appear in court each and every time the Judge requires them to until the case is over.

How long before the defendant is released on Bail?
The amount of time the jail takes to process the bail bond varies with the workload at the jail, the size of the jail, and many other factors outside the control of the Contra Costa Bail Bonds. Once the bail bond is posted at the jail, we will contact you to advise the approximate timeline to post bail and for the defendant's release. For security reasons, no jail facility will give an actual time for a person's release on bail.

Is there a refund of bail bonds if the case is dismissed or the defendant is found Not Guilty?
We are not in the business of determining if someone is right or wrong, it is up to the court to make those decisions. Our job  is to post bail, get you out quickly and insure a person's appearance in Court. Once the defendant is released from jail on our bail bond, we have fulfilled our obligation and the full premium of the bail bond amount is earned

Warrant Surrenders and Bail Bonds

We can get you the information you need and make arrangements for posting a bail bond before surrendering so that you will be out and on your way in as little time as possible. In some cases (misdemeanor or traffic cases) it won't cost you anything. We actually walk with you to the Sheriffs' Department, arrange for your release with your signature only, without going into custody and at no cost to you.

Why are Professional Bail Bondsman Services Important?
A reputable and proven bail bonds company provides an extremely important service to people and to the justice system. Although the explanation of the process we outlined above seemed straight forward – we get the amount of bail, you buy the bail bond from us and we post bail on your behalf – the system is actually quite complex.

Like most things having to do with government, law enforcement and the justice system, the bail bonds arena has many facets that require years to learn and master. Our bail bondsmen have spent a great deal of time on not only the mechanics of providing and posting bail but also on getting to know the specific "territory" in Martinez and Contra Costa County.

In the bail bonds world relationships are extremely important. Officials in the courts and jails must come to trust bail bondsmen. As professionals we are part of the system of justice and leverage relationships built over years of proven performance. There are legal relationships, laws governing the bail bonds industry and chains of command that we must understand and maneuver on behalf of our Martinez bail bonds clients.

When a bail bond company consistently performs beyond expectations for clients, judicial and law enforcement processes are expedited. We know how to post bail quickly for our Martinez clients and get them out of jail. We understand the map of our territory very well and know the right people to contact to make the bail bonds experience as friendly as possible.

Our bondsmen have more than 50 years of experience helping people get out of jail on bail. We have done our time over the decades and delivered faithfully for our clients and the courts. When you, or a loved one, needs to post bail in Northern California and wants the support of seasoned bail bonds professionals please call us anytime of the day or night.
