Legal fees can quickly pile up and become costly for many people. Working with the right defense attorneys and doing some simple tasks up front can help you save money. I am an attorney with the tenacity you want and a proven track record to make sure your voice is heard. I specialize in criminal defense cases and have successfully represented individuals in a wide variety of situations, from traffic violations to serious charges.
Follow the guidelines below to navigate legal fees when hiring a lawyer.
Choose Your Attorney Wisely
Identify a lawyer you're most comfortable working with for the entire process to be smooth. A background check will help you avoid hiring a new lawyer in the middle of your case.
I recognize that criminal charges can be scary and daunting. The many things that go through your mind can be overwhelming. I have vast experience to help you if you are facing criminal charges.
Respond to Phone Calls or Emails
Keep communication open with your lawyer to save on costs. If your lawyer asks for information or documentation, provide it as soon as possible to avoid the attorney following up with an email or a call. If a paralegal or lawyer has to look for you, the legal fee will be much more expensive.
You can also include all your concerns and questions in a single email instead of sending countless emails in one day. You will save money because the attorney will take less time to answer all your questions.
I will help you achieve the best possible outcome for your case. I will listen to what you have to say and respond well to all your questions.
Request for a Flat Fee Arrangement
Attorneys have different types of fee arrangements, including flat fee arrangements, contingency fees, and hourly rates. A flat fee arrangement would be most appropriate if your case will take a long time.
A predetermined amount will help to reduce your legal fees. I have the knowledge required to give you a clear and accurate quote for your case.
I also have what it takes to argue and win your case before a jury. As an experienced attorney, I will inform you of the amount you are expected to pay and budget properly to avoid surprises.
Ask How You Can Assist the Lawyer
You can take on some responsibilities to reduce the legal fees. For instance, you can request medical records instead of waiting for the attorney to do that task and bill you. Being honest about the details of your case with your lawyer can also significantly reduce legal fees.
Your attorney will be well prepared for your case to avoid wasting time responding to issues they were unaware of. I understand the laws and know what to do for your case to have a good outcome in court.
