Great people and fast service. They really try to help. And they are willing to compromise with the premiums thru payment plans. Not many bondsmans do that anymore. 5 stars all day for this place.
Wonderful company. I posted my friends bail and then the judge released him! Freedom Bail Bond refunded me my $300.00 with a good spirit. Thank you for being so understanding!
