When you meet a potential lawyer, ask the lawyer questions to make certain you and your potential representation are on the same page regarding your case.
In a criminal case, criminal defence lawyers handle the majority of tasks associated with criminal law cases. Criminal defence lawyers work to ensure that your voice is heard in the courtroom. For example, a criminal defence lawyer may examine the evidence against you and demonstrate to courts that the evidence is in your favour. Criminal defence lawyers may be able to assist you with the removal of charges from your record and lessen your sentences by negotiating with local courts.
Lawyers’ fees vary based on the type of offence, time spent in court or dealing with the courts, and numerous other factors. However, the lawyers at Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers work hard to provide clients with cost and fee information. At Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers, for Magistrates’ Court matters, whenever possible, we quote one fee for services rendered. For cases that are held in County and Supreme Courts, we explain our fees at the onset of representation whenever possible.
