Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a defense attorney cost?

Typically, you can expect to pay 0 to 0 an hour for a criminal defense lawyer's time. With an hourly fee structure, it is not uncommon for legal bills to get into the $10,000 to $15,000 range quickly. A lawyer who works on an hourly rate may also require the payment of a retainer fee.

What Does a Criminal Defense Attorney Do?

Criminal defense attorneys research the facts, investigate the case against their clients and try to negotiate deals with their adversaries (prosecutors). These deals may include reduced bail, reduced charges, and reduced sentences.

Is it better to have a public defender or lawyer?

A big difference between a public defender vs private attorney is the fact that if a lawyer does a poor job their business will suffer. A public defender gets more cases than they can handle no matter the outcomes. Only trust your freedom to the best criminal defense attorney in your state.

Can a good lawyer get you out of anything?

Theoretically, a good team of attorneys can get you out of just about anything, if you have enough money.  As they say, you need to be able to afford "the best criminal justice money can buy."

Is a DUI lawyer worth it?

It is always worth getting a lawyer for DUI or DWI to help get the case dropped and win in court. The accused should hire the best DUI attorney to establish a strong defense.

How can I pay my lawyer with no money?

You should do everything possible in order to afford experienced criminal defense. Look to legal aid societies. Visit a law school and ask for help. Contact your county or state bar association. Try pricing attorneys. In the worst case, which we do not recommend you can try and represent yourself.
