      Jon Handler is by far the best bondsman this county has ever had. I been bonded out twice and there's no one that compares to his service. Not even a hundred years ago. I swear he's the best. Probably in the country! I thank you for not only helping me but helping my family to get me out. With out you I would probably would've coped out and had a couple extra charges just cause the state stay isn't worth my proven innocents. Best bondsman in the world....I swear to god!

  •   Awesome bail bond agency! I did not know anything about the bail bond process. My husband was arrested and I didn't know what to do! The lady at SMD asked me where he was being held and talked me through what was needed to get the bond posted. Long story short, we were able to get him bonded and released asap. My advise, just ask them questions if you don't understand something, they are more than willing to help! Thank you again!
