Affordable Flat Fee Agreements and Flexible payment Options.

Costs of Hiring a Criminal defence Lawyer

The honest answer is, “it depends.”

The cost for hiring a criminal lawyer to represent you is based on the nature, severity of the charges and the lawyer`s experience in criminal law. Our criminal lawyers are able to offer you a complimentary consultation to discuss the specific circumstances of your case and what our legal fee ranges will be.

Competitive Capped Fees

Our dedicated criminal lawyers are able to offer you competitive pricing according to your needs.

When you choose to engage our firm, all you have to pay at the outset is a holding deposit to commence your legal retainer with the criminal lawyer of your choice. Thereafter, bills will be managed according to the legal work required to be done for you. We do not ask for full upfront payment.

The benefit of capped fees (for non-contentious cases, eg.‘plead guilty’ cases) is that you as our client can rest assured, at the outset, of an estimate of the legal costs to best advance your case. Any additional disbursements would be outlined in your warrant to act.
