Questions About Criminal Defense Attorneys? We’ve Got Answers.
A Criminal Defense Attorney is an attorney who represents clients facing criminal charges. Criminal charges range from simple driving related misdemeanor offenses, such as DUIs, all the way to more serious felony cases, such as Burglary and Theft Charges. Criminal Defense Attorneys advocate for their clients at each step of the process. This involves criminal representation at first appearances, arraignment, pretrial conference, and trial. Along the way your Criminal Defense Attorney may file appropriate motions that he will present at a criminal court hearings.
You hire a criminal defense attorney because your life is on the line. Even the lowest criminal charges carry a potential for jail time, and carry the potential for a permanent adjudication of guilt on your record. When you hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer, who is customer-reviewed and peer-reviewed, you have a qualified criminal representative who will fight for your liberty. The top criminal lawyers have a good understanding of what a good resolution for your case is, and will advocate strongly for the best possible outcome. When your life is on the line, it is critical to hire an experienced professional to help guide you through the process.
A criminal defense attorney is an advocate for their clients inside of a criminal courtroom. This involves negotiating with the prosecutor, filing motions, and taking cases to trial. The rules of criminal procedure are complicated, and require an extensive legal understanding of the applicable statutes and case law. A criminal defense lawyer analyzes the discovery in every case, making preliminary determinations of fact, and how the applicable law applies to the facts of your case. This will allow a criminal defense attorney to file the appropriate motion in your case (e.g. Motion to Dismiss, Motion to Suppress, etc). Ultimately, if a case is not resolved with a plea or a dismissal, a criminal defense lawyer will take your case to trial. This involves the attorney doing jury selection, opening statements, closing arguments, cross examination of witnesses, etc.
Unfortunately, there is no average cost. Costs can range from the minimal to the expensive depending on the charges you face and the given facts of your case. No reasonable defense attorney will quote you a set price without a more comprehensive look at the facts. Accordingly, it is critical that the Defense Attorney know as much information as they can at the beginning of a case, so that a fair and reasonable price can be relayed. Simple matters, such as motions for early termination on probation can be as low as $500 for an entire representation, where cases such as first-degree murder can be significantly more. The more involved a criminal representation becomes, the more costly it will become as well. If you have any question about the cost of your case, you should give us a call, and talk to a criminal attorney who can provide you with a free initial consultation to discuss the expected costs.
