About Us

How Maselli Bail Bonds started…

Lou Maselli was born in a small farming town in Pennsylvania and at the age of 7 relocated to Oakland, California with his mother. Lou grew up in Oakland with his mother and stepfather and twin siblings. After high school, Lou attended UC Berkeley and graduated in 1960 with a BA in Political Science. He then attended Lincoln Law School for two more years until the demands of marriage and family required him to stop.

While in the middle of Lou’s successful career in finance as a branch manager for a lending company, his stepfather convinced him to obtain his bail license.  That was in 1976. The plan was for them to start a jointly owned bail agency however, AJ Maselli didn’t follow through on the plans. That is when Maselli Bail Bonds was conceived. Lou has always had a passion for law and politics and his bail agency has allowed him to put to use his education and practical law knowledge. 

Thirty four years later and still going strong

Over the last 34 years, Maselli Bail Bonds has developed and maintained a solid reputation in Fremont as a professional and compassionate bail agency. We pride ourselves on offering you much more than just a business transaction. We understand the stresses and legal "ins and outs" of being arrested and how these encounters with the law affect families differently. We purposely choose to come alongside you and become part of your team as you navigate the court system and all its complexities. Over three decades and thousands of families later, we continue to provide stellar customized service to our clients.

Currently, Lou and his wife Lucy own and operate the agency with the steadfast teammates of Martha and Rolando Ochoa.

We believe in serving in our Community

Over the years we have sponsored numerous Youth football, soccer, and baseball leagues. Lou was past-President and Vice President of Mission Peak Kiwanis Club, and former Chairman of the Community Drug Council and has received numerous awards for business excellence or achievements.
