Seems as though everyone perceives bail bonds agencies as a rough and tumble business. Most likely because the average American doesn't differentiate between a bail bonds agent and a bail recovery agent. But that is a different discussion altogether. Although bail bonds agents are portrayed as having a cold demeanor and just heartless business people out make a quick buck, the perception of the woman bail bonds agent is different.
It seems as though women are perceived, in general, as more compassionate and caring then men. In a business that deals with people in difficult situations and trying times, that compassion and caring attitude can be a welcome relief. I would venture to say that being a woman in the bail bonds industry is actually an advantage just for that reason. When people are scared or frightened I would guess seeing a woman rather than a man would be their first choice.
Maybe this is why so many women have been so successful in the bail bonds industry. From Orange County California to Orange County New York, women are making a splash writing bail bonds. I previously talked about the names chosen many bail agencies as tough and based on mob references. While women owned bail agencies don't usually follow that convention. Who would you rather have bail you out in the mddle of the night? Some Goodfellas or a sweet caring mother figure? Maybe a better question is who do you want to be beholden to for the duration of your trial?
