actions that ultimately led to bizarre exonerations.

Can Independent Bounty Hunter Contractors who are
not Licensed Bail Agents Draft and Appear on a Bail Bond Motion for Sole
Proprietorships or Bail Bond Corporations?
Opinion Editorial & Analysis
By Bailspeak’s Primary Bail Education Instructor,
The following is based on my personal,
layman’s opinion as a private citizen who is simply observing his civic duty.
I thought to follow up and add that the
prior email on bounty hunters drafting moving papers and appearing in court for
a bail bond surety isn’t applicable, in my personal opinion, with a licensed
bail agent, appointed as an agent by the real party in interest bail bond
surety moving a court, drafting and appearing under penal code law—so long as
the bail agent is appearing for a sole proprietorship and not a bail bond
It is my personal, layman’s opinion that
Penal Code §1305 subsection j does allow for “the bail agent” to draft and
appear for an unincorporated bail bond company when he or she is appointed by
the surety upon which the bond was written.
It is my personal, layman’s opinion that
Penal Code §1305 subsection j carries greater weight and is deemed controlling
over Business and Professions §6125 for the purposes of bail agents drafting
and appearing on instant, civil matters injected into an existing criminal
matter before a superior court.
There are published case cites, however,
where the Civil Code of Procedures has sections that are controlling over
certain Penal Code, bail related sections, but, for the purposes of this
personal opinion analysis, bounty hunters who are not licensed bail agents and
appointed by the surety do not have standing under Penal Code §1305 subsection
j to draft and appear in superior court and are subject to Business and
Professions §6125 penalty—in my personal, layman’s opinion.
It is my personal, layman’s opinion that
the curiously lamented reference to an obscure California Civil Code of
Procedure section that allows for a bounty hunter “surety insurer” to draft and
appear in court is seriously flawed and fatal to any bounty hunter’s argument
to the extent that Civil Code of Procedure 995.120 subsection a and b defines a
“surety insurer” in part as follows: “‘Admitted surety insurer’ means a
corporate insurer or a reciprocal or interinsurance exchange to which the
Insurance Commissioner has issued a certificate of authority to transact surety
insurance in this state, as defined in Section 105 of the Insurance Code,” “For
the purpose of application of this chapter to a bond given pursuant to any
statute of this state, the phrases ‘admitted surety insurer,’ ‘authorized
surety company,’ ‘bonding company,’ ‘corporate surety,’ and comparable phrases
used in the statute mean "admitted surety insurer" as defined in this
Whereas, it is my personal, layman’s
position that a bounty hunter appearing for a bail bond company as an
independent contractor is, arguably, not drafting and appearing as an agent for
the surety in any capacity and in such instances the matter in question then defaults
to Business and Professions §6125 primarily because one well established
structure of bail agents appearing for their own non-incorporated bail
companies in superior courts reverts to another dictum based structure where,
plainly stated, a private citizen—not even a corporate officer of the surety,
which is also not applicable for the purposes of this personal, layman’s
analysis—is somehow not even appearing in propria persona for the corporation
and is likened to any person simply walking in off the street not to
self-represent but to represent an entity that he or she isn’t even a corporate
officer or shareholder of and all of which is because the bounty hunter is not
a licensed bail agent who is appointed as an agent for any surety.
Consequently and in my personal,
layman’s opinion, judicial action predicated on the unlicensed practice of law
subjects the victims of a crime to collateral attack by county governments
insofar that previously granted bail bond motions may be reversed at any time,
thus causing the potentiality of tremendous harm to the parties of a private
civil bail bond contract specifically and the California Bail Industry
generally once a court loses jurisdictions to even consider repairing the
damage irrespective of remedies buried in ancillary codes.
Furthermore, while California Penal Code
§1305 subsection j allows for a surety appointed bail agent licensed by the California Department
of Insurance to draft and appear for an unincorporated bail agency, there is no
known statutory allowance for a corporate surety to unilaterally circumvent
numerous related sections and in numerous applicable California Codes by summarily authorizing a common bounty
hunter to practice law for a corporation—in my personal, layman’s opinion.
The civil and criminal liability may be
further compounded, apart from a the unlawful practice of law by a common
bounty hunter, if facts-in-evidence reveal that an attorney for a corporation,
who is a lawyer, authorized the unlawful practice of law since exceptions may
not be controlling over other California Codes—in my personal opinion.
In addition to the above paragraph, it
may be a misdemeanor crime for any person to intentionally deceive or collude
to deceive a court or any party by making oral arguments under Oath or by
submitting any document that causes a court or person to believe that a common
bounty hunter may practice law separate and apart from established law to the
extent that any attorney who provides such evidence or document or opinion may
knowingly be faced with a criminal charge, fine and, possibly, disbarment.
To be succinct in the interest of
brevity, in my personal, layman’s opinion, a bounty hunter working as an
independent contractor for a bail bond company is disallowed to appear under
Penal law; moreover, Civil Code of Procedures does not apply because in the
absence of Penal law applications the bounty hunter is then personally appearing
for an incorporated surety where, arguably, said bounty hunter is engaging in
the “unlicensed practice of law;” indeed, a corporation is not a natural person
and cannot appear in propria persona; it can only appear through counsel with
the exception of sending a corporate representative to small claims under Code
of Civil Procedure section 116.510.
Thus California today defines law
practice as providing “legal advice and legal instrument and contract
preparation, whether or not these subjects were rendered in the course of
litigation.” Birbower, Montalban, Condo & Frank, P.C . v Superior Court.,
supra, at 128.Providing legal advice or service is a violation of
the State Bar Act if done by an unlicensedperson, even if the advice or
service does not relate to any matter pending before a court.(Mickel
v. Murphy (1957) 147 Cal.App.2d 718, 721.)
The lead case on this is Paradise v.
Nowlin (1948) 86 Cal.App.2d 897. Subsequent cases have affirmed its holding
that corporations cannot appear pro per for three distinct reasons: (1) any
representative sent on behalf of the corporation would be engaged in the
unauthorized practice of law; (2) the rule ensures that qualified professionals
will appear in court, thereby increasing the efficient and proper
administration of justice; and (3) the distinction helps to maintain the wall
between the corporation as an entity and its individuals shareholders,
directors, and officers. (Id.; see also CLD Construction, Inc. v. City of San Ramon
(2004) 120 Cal.App.4th 765, 773.)
A corporation is not a natural person,
and therefore cannot appear in an action in propria persona. It can appear only
through counsel. (Merco Construction Engineers, Inc. v. Mun.Ct. (Sully Miller
Contracting Co.) (1978) 21 Cal.3d 724, 731.) This prohibition stems from the
notion a corporate representative who would likely appear on behalf of the
corporation would be engaged in the unlicensed practice of law. (Gamet v.
Blanchard (2001) 91 Cal.App.4th 1276, 1284.) The prohibition against a
corporation's “self-representation” in court also furthers the efficient
administration of justice by assuring that qualified professionals present the
corporation's case and assist the court in resolution of the issues; and it helps
maintain the distinction between the corporation and its shareholders. (CLD
Const., Inc. v. City of San Ramon (2004) 120 Cal.App.4th 1141, 1146.)
PC §1305 (j) A motion filed in a
timely manner within the 180-day period may be heard within 30 days of the expiration
of the 180-day period. The court may extend the 30-day period upon a showing of
good cause. The motion may be made by the surety insurer, the bail agent, the
surety, or the depositor of money or property, any of whom may appear in person
or through an attorney.
PC §1305 (k) In addition to any
other notice required by law, the moving party shall give the prosecuting
agency a written notice at least 10 court days before a hearing held pursuant
to subdivision (f), (g), or (j), as a condition precedent to granting the

CALIFORNIA BOUNTY HUNTERS
Are you looking to for the best educated
fugitive recovery agents, trained in lawful bail enforcement, and with many who
are now conducting bail fugitive recovery in all of California’s 58 counties?
The facts are these: untrained, poorly
trained, and misguided bounty hunters are increasingly being arrested, charged,
and convicted and with personal injury lawyers now starting to take on, however
frivolous due to ignorance of bail such suits may appear, and are now filing civil suits and naming whoever
hired the errant bounty hunters, the bail agency owners, the general bail
agents, and with sureties as the main goal of the law suits.
Bailspeak Alumni undertake the timeliest,
relevant, and most unrivaled bail agent pre licensing immersion course available in
California, and, arguably, the Nation.
BAIL AGENTS WANTED?
Are you looking for the best educated
bail agent employees to post bail bonds who know what is legally permissible
and what is not inasmuch that they can operate legally and not get their
employers in criminal or civil trouble?
Yes, Bailspeak Alumni are the most
sought after new hires by California’s top Bail Job Recruiters; moreover,
Bailspeak is the First Choice for bail education pre licensing in California and
for a great many reasons.
See above, to your left and below where California Bail Agent Class
Photos present a visual of the finest people who have entered into the bail
industry and with some now looking to help you save or grow your bail business by good underwriting or lawful bounty hunting.
Success in Bounty Hunting arrives from a
working knowledge of both orthodox and unorthodox disciplines combined with
being able to think in black and white terms, and, simultaneously, being able
to think abstractly.
While one cannot be successful absent an
ability to stand back and view a case whole and complete, a controlled and
calculated employment of unadulterated audacity is equally critical.
Frankly speaking, it takes quite a bit
of gumption to very literally and routinely confront wanted felony fugitives
who may be in the company of other wanted felony fugitives by and through the
tactical engagement of persons at rural and urban structures or other locations
where they have the advantage of familiarity.
The nature of bounty hunting
successfully requires “resolute
acceptance” of many things to include the very real potentiality of losing
an engagement and losing badly; however, this is why we seek out and subject
ourselves to all forms of applicable training and instruction to be prepared to
respond and not react—untrained people lacking resolve react.
In all cases hunt your fugitives safely
with the following as timeless and on-point:
"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter
Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view,
and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life; beautify all things in your
life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a
friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the
joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in
Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are
filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray
for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way; sing
your death song and die like a hero going home." ~ Tecumseh (/tɛˈkʌmsə/; March 1768 – October 5, 1813) was a Native
American leader of the Shawnee and a large tribal confederacy (known as Tecumseh's
Confederacy) which opposed the United States during Tecumseh's War and became
an ally of Britain in the War of 1812.
