Every lawyer works differently. Here at the Law Offices of Purav Bhatt, I work on a flat fee basis. Depending on the charges you are facing, I will provide you with a price that matches how much work will be involved with your case and we can set up monthly installments to make the process smoother for you. There are some guidelines that we use to establish what the fee will be for your specific case:
Severity – The severity of a charge is usually a primary factor in establishing the fee. The more severe the consequences of the case and the more complicated the case, the higher the fee a criminal attorney will charge. Simply put, there is a lot more involved in preparing for a murder case than for a DUI. Legal representation on a murder offense is going to cost substantially more than a drunk driving case because of the time and preparation involved.
Experience & Reputation– The experience and reputation of the criminal defense lawyer or the firm is also a factor in establishing the fee. The more experienced the attorney and the more established their track record, the higher the fee.
When it comes to finding the best lawyer for you, no two criminal defense lawyers are exactly alike. Every lawyer has different skills and experience. What you are looking for is the best criminal attorney who can give you the best outcome for your case. Find the right attorneys first. Then, consider price.
