Don't Delay in Hiring An Attorney

Even though your first court setting may be months in the future, you should not delay in hiring an attorney. Everyday you delay, after arrested or charged, the State is hard at work building its case against you -- trying to make it harder for you and your attorney to defend.

Costs and Attorney Fees

Criminal cases can be expensive -- both in time and money. The cost of a criminal defense lawyer can vary significantly, and is typically based on the nature and severity of the charges, the complexity of the case, the court to which a case is assigned, the lawyer’s years of experience and reputation and other factors.
