Early Disposition Court


"The fastest way out of an ugly situation"

What is Early Disposition Court (EDC)?

Early Disposition Court, or EDC, is a court hearing designed to bring criminal cases to resolution with the fewest possible court appearances. The goal is to make the criminal justice system more efficient by providing a quick disposition to the case while still protecting the rights of all parties involved. In Maricopa County, cases filed in EDC involve victimless charges of possession of illegal drugs for personal use and/or paraphernalia. With these cases many defendants are ordered to participate in substance abuse treatment programs in lieu of prosecution.

How Does it work?

After the Initial Appearance (the first hearing after an arrest), the County Attorney decides if a case should go to EDC. If the case meets the criteria for EDC, a hearing is set for an EDC session. At that EDC session, the defendant is arraigned, and a plea agreement is offered by the County Attorney. If the defendant accepts the plea agreement, sentencing will occur that day or another EDC session. If the defendant does not accept the offered plea agreement, there are two options. More time is allowed to reach a plea agreement by the next EDC session; or the case is set for a traditional court session. Phoenix Bail Bonds (602) 267-9057

Finding The Best Bail Bonds Company

Best Phoenix Bail Bonds Company

When shopping for a bail bonds company in Phoenix, most people go to the internet. In fact, the internet or word of mouth may be the only way you'll find a bondsman - the yellow pages are obsolete.

Most bail bond companies have Google local listings and/or websites where you can find phone numbers, services offered, addresses and reviews. Beware of bail bond reviews, most of them have become totally unreliable or fake. The hard fact is, most people are embarrassed to use a bondsman - no one likes to talk about a family member's trouble with the law, let alone leave a public review. When you see a bail bond company with as many reviews as well known restaurants, be skeptical – better yet, run.

So, what do you look for in a bail bondsman?

* Choose a company that has been in business at least 5 years (less than 45% of insurance companies make it to their 5th year and only 1/3 makes it to their 10th).
* Ask how long the bail bond agent helping you has been licensed.
* How well does the agent know their business and how well can he/she explain the process to you? An experienced agent should clearly and confidently answer any question you may ask. If you don’t understand them, walk away.
* A good bondsman won’t fast talk you or sound like a used car salesman.
* If you are still unsure, check for complaints registered with the AZ Dept of Insurance: 602-364-2499.

Maricopa County Bail Bonds has been in business since 2008 (11 yrs).
All of our agents have a minimum of 8 years of experience.

Guilt or Innocence

Guilty or innocent it doesn’t matter.

Whether you committed a crime or didn’t do it - bail bonds are provided to any client that can put up the required collateral and pay the fee. Risk is an important factor to a bondsman when issuing a bond; this is why bail bonds in Phoenix are secured with collateral. Collateral is property or cash that is held as security against the bond – it acts as a guarantee that the Indemnitor on the bond has the ability to cover any loss that the bondsman may incur. Loss occurs when a bond is forfeited by the court for the defendant’s Failure to Appear. Looking for a bail bond? We would be happy to explain the process to you.

Preliminary Hearing

Preliminary Hearing

Every defendant charged with a felony has the right to a Preliminary Hearing. A preliminary hearing is held to determine whether the defendant should face trial on the charges alleged in the complaint. At the hearing, the prosecutor presents a magistrate with evidence that would lead a reasonable person to conclude that the accused individual has committed the crime. The Judge can find probable cause and order the defendant to stand trial, or dismiss the case based on a lack of probable cause.

Per 16A A.R.S. Rules Crim. Proc., Rule 5.1, a preliminary hearing must be held before a magistrate no later than 10 days after the defendant's Initial Appearance if the defendant is in custody, or no later than 20 days after the defendant's Initial Appearance if the defendant is not in custody, unless:
(1) the complaint is dismissed;
(2) the hearing is waived;
(3) the defendant has been transferred from the juvenile court for criminal prosecution on specified charges;
(4) the magistrate orders the hearing continued; or
(5) the court made a probable cause finding at a bail eligibility hearing under Rule 7.2(b)(4).

Go to Court Before Posting Bail


Phoenix Bail Bonds realizes that no one wants to be in jail, but sometimes exercising a little patience will pay off in a big way. Once you get arrested, it's smart to go to your Initial Appearance before bailing out of jail. State law requires everyone to be taken before a magistrate within 24 hours - so you won't have long to wait. At the Initial Appearance, you will be informed of your Charges, your Conditions of Release, and when your next scheduled hearing will be. This is also when bail is set and in many cases you may be released on your own recognizance and won't have to post bail - this could save you a lot of money. If you bail out before your Initial Appearance, you will have 10 days to schedule a hearing with the court of jurisdiction. If you fail to do this, a warrant will be issued for your arrest and whatever bond or bail that was posted on your behalf will be forfeited.

Bail Bond Payment Plan


No, we don't bail people out of jail for free and if we did you should be suspicious of our intent. Arizona law requires you to pay a 10 percent premium fee plus expenses on any bond purchased through an Arizona Bondsman.

Yes, there are a couple of bail bond companies out there that allow payments on the premium, or require you to pay the entire premium before your first hearing. Don't fall for it. If you don't make your payment, they may take your collateral, or put the Defendant back in jail.

We've tried taking payments and "working" with people and our experience indicated that most people will not or cannot make their payments, even after they know the repercussions of not doing so. We stopped doing payment plans because our good intentions backfired and they were bad for our clients.

Don't take chances; if you can make bail and still have funds left over to meet your responsibilities, do it, but please don't make matters worse by falling into a payment plan.

Google, in July of 2018, banned bail bond companies from advertising on line, Google believed that the industry was taking advantage of people:  Although, I don't agree with Google's assessment of the situation, I do believe that the good intentions of bail bond companies trying to help people caused the problem.

Unpaid Court Fines and How to Stay Out of Jail

Stay Out of Jail

Cause of Arrest

A very common cause of arrest and incarceration in Arizona is caused indirectly by not paying your fine or restitution on a traffic complaint or criminal matter. I use the word "indirectly" because most Arizona courts don't arrest you for not paying your fine, but they do arrest you for Failing to Appear in court. Let me explain.

When you are sentenced for a case that requires the payment of a fine or restitution, you make an agreement with the court to pay the fine immediately, or you set up a payment plan. If you fail to pay in a timely manner, or not at all, the court will send out a notice demanding payment. If you still don't make a payment, or offer an excuse, the court will summons you to a Show Cause hearing, wherein the judge ask you to explain why you have not complied with a court order.

Failure to Appear

The reason most people get arrested is not for failing to pay a fine, but for failing to appear in court once summoned. As it happens, most people are scared to death of court and they believe that if they can't offer a good excuse for non-payment, the court will arrest them. This couldn't be further from the truth, the court arrests you for not appearing when so ordered. Once you appear, the court will generally re-establish your payment plan. The court wants your money, not your hide.

Advice to everyone that owes the court money:

  1. Set up your payment plan with the lowest monthly deposit allowed.
  2. Pay off your debt as quickly as possible...make double payments.
  3. If you miss a payment, call the court and put it in writing what your excuse is and,
  4. If you are summoned to court, by all means go.

If you follow our advice, you won't end in jail.

Large Phoenix Bail Bonds


Trying to bail a friend or family member out of the Maricopa County Jail can be an intimidating proposition, but when the court makes it a large bond, it becomes overwhelming. Before going down the road of calling bondsman after bondsman, take inventory of what you have available for cash and property. You will need two things:

  1. You have to pay a 10% fee, plus expenses; the fee is non-refundable and represents the minimum amount of dollars you will have to come up with to buy the bond.
  2. The property requirement, also referred to as collateral, is any asset with a value equal to, or greater than the bond amount. Main stream bondsman require collateral and the larger the bond the more important it becomes. The most common asset used for collateral with large bonds is real estate. however: cash can be collateral.
When you begin calling around trying to select a bondsman, find one that can clearly explain what is needed to put your bond together; find someone you can relate with. Fees and collateral requirements are standard, so find someone that makes you feel comfortable and has been in the business for years. Maricopa County Bail Bonds Office: (602) 258-4488

Maricopa County Bail Bond Forfeiture

Bail Bond Forfeitures - Phoenix, Arizona

BOND FORFEITURE is something no one wants to experience and always takes people by surprise. Bond Forfeiture only occurs when the defendant has Failed to Comply with his Conditions of Release, or Failed to Appear (FTA) for a hearing. When there is an FTA the Judge will do two things:
1. Issue a warrant for the defendant's arrest. 2. Set a Bond Forfeiture hearing, aka, Order to Show Cause hearing. Forfeiture Hearings are commonly set about 30 days after the FTA, although, I have seen as little as two weeks notice. This date can sometimes be reset to a future date with Good Cause being demonstrated to the court. If the Defendant self-surrenders, or is put back in jail by the bail bond company prior to the Forfeiture Hearing, the court will generally exonerate some to all of the bond. The court has the legal right to forfeit the entire amount. If the defendant has not self-surrendered, or not been arrested by the bondsman by the Hearing date, the bond is generally forfeited in its entirety. If some or all of the bond has been forfeited, the County Attorney will prepare a Judgement, which when signed by the judge, requires full payment. The Judgement carries interest. If you bought your bond from a bondsman, you will be required to reimburse the agent for any loss or expense incurred. Upon payment of the agent's loss, your collateral will be returned.

Collateral Guide


Most Arizona bail bond companies require collateral for any size bond. Collateral is something a Phoenix bail bondsman holds as security; it acts as a guarantee that the defendant goes to every one of his/her hearings until the bond is "Exonerated". Collateral must have a value at least equal to the bond amount. 

Phoenix Bail Bonds uses wholesale price valuations. This means we assign values similar to pawn shops. If a vehicle is used, we price the vehicle with Kelley Blue Book using "Trade in Values", Fair Price. 

Cars can't be older than a ten years, they must be Arizona registered and titled and they must be insured with "Comprehensive" insurance, so if you wreck it, we are still covered. For bonds that are $10,000 or larger, we will hold on to the vehicle. You may pre-qualify your vehicle here:
