How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer?
That's a tricky question. Obviously, it depends on the nature of the charges against you and the defense strategy that we are working towards. We can give you a solid idea of what to expect in legal fees to fight your charges in a phone consultation. We try to stay away from billing hourly and instead will quote you a flat rate for your defense. This way, you have a solid understanding of the total costs and can plan accordingly. We accept all major credit cards and offer payment plans in certain situations. We have more in-depth information about why we prefer to use a flat fee structure available on our fees and costs page.
What are some of the costs of NOT hiring a criminal defense lawyer?
We understand that the cost of hiring a criminal defense lawyer can be cause for sticker shock. That said, when you are facing criminal charges, it is much more than just a guilty or not-guilty verdict at stake. Beyond the obvious fines and possible jail time associated with a criminal charge, additional negative effects of having a criminal record can include:
- Limited employment opportunities
- Lack of options for rental property
- Limited availability of Student Loan options
- Heightened Insurance Premiums (in the case of a DUI or traffic violation)
- Social Stigma & difficulty re-entering society after time incarcerated
We have worked with other people facing difficult and complex charges and helped them through to a good result. We can't make your criminal charges magically disappear, but we can protect you from the pitfalls of becoming a number and getting lost in the system. We can help protect your rights and ensure that your voice is heard.
