Typically, the way a bail bond works is that the judge sets a certain amount of bail. If the person cannot afford the full amount, they can enter a contract with a bail bondsman to pay a percentage of the bail. The bondsman than pays the rest. If the accused person makes all court
appearance, the court returns the bail. However, that money goes to the bondsman as the fee. That's what the contract says. Usually, the fee is 10%, which means that you'd be entitled to get at least some of what you paid back.
If you have a copy of what you signed, read it carefully to see what percentage was the fee and whether you're entitled to get any portion of it back. You can also contact the court directly to see if bail was returned. If the bail was returned and the bail bond company kept more than what they were allowed to have, you may be able to sue for reimbursement. They can't just say they don't remember - they'd have to be able to account for the funds if the court returned the money to them.
