Q: On average how much would it cost to obtain legal defense for 3 probation felony’s cases in three separate counties ?
Husband is on felony probation in 3 separate counties and recently committed a crime . Now needs legal representation for the 3 probation counties to serve as a leasion between the courts to speed up sentencing process and hopefully agree to the terms set by the county in which new crimes were committed .
There's too many variables in play to give you a very general "average" answer. Consider that most basic probation cases can run about $3,500-5000 each. Combine that with the co-ordination that has to to accomplished between three jurisdictions, three prosecutors, three judges, multiple probation officers, etc.. and you're looking at over 10K..on average. Consider your financial abilities and start with contacting attorneys in each jurisdiction. It's a lot of work.
The Public Defender may be an option. Good Luck.

A: Every lawyer charges different prices. Call around to attorneys in those counties and get prices.
