We’re Big Enough to Serve You & Small Enough to Know You!


“We’re there when you need us,” has been our motto since 1968 when Charles J. Miller, founder of the Company, wrote his first Bail Bond at 2:00am one morning at the Clermont County Jail in Batavia, Ohio.  More bonds have been written during the nights, weekends and holidays than at any other time – and we are here to serve you when and where you need us.    

Charles J. Miller Bonding was a sole proprietorship until 1990, when Charles J. Miller set up two separate corporations, (Charles J. Miller Bonding, Inc. and A-1 Bail Bonds, Inc.) in 1990 when his son, Charles E. Miller, took over ownership and management of the corporations.    

This father and son team, who were both Independent Insurance Agents, have set up a Professional Team of Bail Agents to serve their customers as they expanded their Bail Bond Services across Ohio. This Professional Team of Bail Agents here in Ohio is ready and available when you need them.

Likewise, a network of Professional Bail Agents have been established across the country to serve your needs…..whether it be in Florida, California, Texas or West Virginia, or any other state for that matter.

We are only a phone call away.  We have a “live” Bail Agent who answers your calls 24 hours a day – 7 days a week! 

In 2000, Charles E. Miller received the Bail Agent of the Year Award from the Professional Bail Agents of the United States for his contribution in re-writing the Bail Statues in Ohio with the emphasis on maintaining Professionalism in the Bail Industry.   

The Family Tradition in Bail continued when Chase E. Miller joined the Company in 2013 after graduating with a B.A. Degree in Business from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.
