For the past three decades as Chickie’s Bail Bonds has served the needs of the legal community, we have felt a need to express our gratitude to the lawyers who have been instrumental in creating our success and who continue to support us, some of whom have been by our side these entire thirty years.
Many years ago we established the “Chickie’s Bail Bonds Holiday Party” held in early November which many of our lawyer friends tell us they look forward to every year as the kickoff to the holiday season. Several years ago we created the “Million Dollar Club” where special acknowledgement is paid to those lawyers referring a bail bond of a half million or more.
The “Million Dollar Party” was held this year at the beautiful Wilshire Restaurant – an “Evening Under the Stars”, and as you see by the photographs, everyone had a wonderful time.
In our continuing effort to “give back”, we are considering taking on a new project next year. All of us support worthy charities but I believe there are many not-so-significant groups that make significant contributions to society. I am thinking of the life saving efforts where battered women are kept safe, where teenage drug addicts are brought in from the streets and saved from a life of prostitution and degradation. So many wonderful organizations doing wonderful work but very much under the radar and not well known.
Chickie’s Bail Bonds will be researching possible groups and suggest that if you are aware of any such organizations that would appreciate a bit of help, let us have the information. During the holiday season we are all swept up on the joy of giving – I like to think that joy can be spread all year long!
Enjoy our photos – enjoy our newsletter – and enjoy your summer!
Overheard at a recent social event, spoken in reverence and awe
“IS THAT BRAD BRUNON?”
The following is not intended by Chickie’s Bail Bonds to suggest in any manner the name of or recommend any attorney to any arrestee or person acting for an arrestee. The arrestee or person acting for an arrestee should and is encouraged to seek the services of a qualified attorney, as deemed necessary, and access the California State Bar website for a referral at www.calbar.ca.gov.
Upon entering the law office of Brad Brunon one becomes immediately aware of the large number of impressive awards, degrees and citations adorning two of his office walls. Even more impressive to your roving reporter was the dismissive manner of this modest lawyer, his demeanor being “oh, that is nothing special”.
Bradley William Brunon was born in Inglewood California and was raised in modest circumstances. He has fond memories of visiting his grandmother in Arkansas where he spent his summers doing manual labor, everything from hacking hay in 110 degree weather to physically driving pigs “up the ramp” to be slaughtered. At one time he drove the switch engine on the local railroad train.
Little is known about the role of the insurance company when it comes to writing bail bonds. Clients and attorneys alike simply make a telephone call to Chickie’s Bail Bonds and in most cases the defendant is out of custody in a matter of hours. The staff at Chickie’s prides itself on the ability to work quickly and efficiently in order to deliver the service you have come to expect and while yes, we are that good all on our own, there are occasions when we bring in the support staff of our insurance company when posting an unusually large bond.
AIA is composed of a group of dedicated individuals who work tirelessly to support their network of agents; so let’s take a look “Behind the Paper” and introduce you to AIA Insurance Services – “Our Partners in Crime”.

Rehab and Recidivism
As can be readily seen by the study below, the case for treating drug abusing criminal offenders is compelling!
Not only does effective treatment decrease future drug use and drug-related criminal behavior; it also improves the individual’s relationships with his or her family, improves prospects for future employment and most importantly, gives the offender a real chance of regaining a sense of his self-worth. Return a person’s own integrity, and you will fully and truly rehabilitate the criminal.
