How much will the criminal defense law firm charge me for their legal services?
It is critical that you receive and sign a written contract (retainer agreement) before entering into a professional relationship with a criminal defense law firm. The retainer agreement should clearly spell out the terms of the contractual relationship. Do not hire a criminal defense attorney who does not give you a copy of a signed retainer agreement. This document needs to be signed by both you and your attorney.
Many attorneys will charge extremely high fees while others may charge very low fees. If a law firm is quoting a very low fee, you will want to investigate the experience of that law firm. On the other hand just because a law firm is the “most expensive” does not mean that they are the most qualified to defend your case.
