We’re family people with a long
history and honest reputation.
We have the honor of being the oldest and most established bail bond company in Vista located in North San Diego County. The family who started this Bail Bond company in 1959 still manage the business today. The history behind this established company has played a large part in the beginnings of the San Diego County bail bond business in the Vista area. The lessons (taught by founder, Ben Dower) about going above and beyond what is expected in service, has created a safe atmosphere at Vista Bail Bonds for customers when they, their family, or friends find themselves in jail and need a bail bond.
Vista Bail Bonds was one of the first to change the old Hollywood image of the bail bond office from the shady, smoke-filled, back alley office to a clean, open, comfortable place where you and your family can feel safe and taken care of.
In 1959, Ben Dower started up his own San Diego County bail bond company, naming it A&A Bail Bonds. Ben liked to help people in need and quickly learned that people thrown in the “Pokey” were people in need of help! The San Diego area bail bond business seemed like a good way to make some extra money, but Ben quickly learned that it meant a lot of extra hours, and not much extra pay.
Ben’s integrity, determination and drive (or stubbornness!), along with his natural charm, made him well-known and liked throughout San Diego County. He earned the respect of San Diego judges, DA’s, law enforcement, attorneys, biker’s and criminals alike. His upfront approach and willingness to go the extra mile just to help others made him highly-respected.
In 1966, Ben and his wife Virginia, started “Vista Bail Bonds”. When Ben passed away in 1988, the community and the San Diego bail bond industry lost a remarkable person. He is still remembered by many today. After Ben’s death, the family business, which included A&A Bail Bonds, Dower Bail Bonds and Vista Bail Bonds, was managed by Ben’s oldest son, Brian Dower. In 1990, Ben’s stepson Matt, was given the opportunity to manage the Vista Bail Bonds name and operation.
On January 1st 1991, Virginia Dower and Vista Bail Bonds began doing business as a separate bail bond entity from A&A and Dower Bail Bonds. In 1993 Virginia Dower and Vista Bail Bonds acquired the A&A Bail Bonds name and in 1997 both companies incorporated under Vista Bail Bonds Inc. In the years after 1991, Vista Bail Bonds, Virginia Dower and Matthew Demery have been joined by Michael Demery, Shane Gonzalez, Jan Telisky, Ronald Demery and David Demery: all who are an important part of this model family business. Sadly, in 1997, Jan Telisky lost her battle with lung cancer and passed away.
The trained and experienced professionals of Vista Bail Bonds, Inc. provide information about the bail bond business to the interested public. We are leaders in making the process of bailing someone out of jail a safe, positive, professional experience.
