Q: Is there any criminal lawyers who are willing to work off a payment plan?
My relative is searching for a criminal lawyer immediatley, but is very limited on financial resources at the moment. Is currently on bail continuing work is there any lawyer that can work within budget? Current charge is 245 a4 and 245 a1
A: MORE INFO NEEDED
OUR FIRM DOES NOT BUT IF HE CAN NOT AFFORD A LAWYER HE CAN ASK THE COURT FOR A PUBLIC DEFENDER WHICH WOULD PROBABLY BE BETTER THAN FINDING THE CHEAPEST LAWYER
A: Sometimes I offer payment plans and I tend to have lower rates than most around me. My consults are free. It never hurts to shop around. However, if someone is dirt cheap, there may be a reason and a public defender at that point would not be a bad idea. Public defenders are great attorneys but they are overworked. They won't have the time to look at the case with a fine-toothed comb, generally speaking.
