Unseen Costs of Criminal Cases
Being arrested for a crime is not only an emotionally stressful event, but can also be financially significant. Fines and costs add up quickly in criminal cases. Our goal is to help minimize the financial impact an arrest has on your family, while providing high quality legal representation.
Some of the unseen costs of criminal cases are those passed on to taxpayers. A recent article highlights these costs:
● The cost of jurors: in high profile cases, the cost of feeding and housing the jurors falls to the State
● Court costs: filing or participating in a trial is not free, the Court Clerk charges fees for filing cases and documents
● Security for jurors and witnesses
Costs are the responsibility of the Defendant, and in certain cases like the one mentioned in the above article, some costs are passed on to taxpayers. Every case deserves the best defense possible, but also at a reasonable expense. Our highly trained staff is skilled at providing aggressive representation while keeping costs reasonable. We know when to push for things needed to effectively defend you, and the cost associated with our efforts. Our goal is to provide you with the highest level defense, in a way that doesn’t break the bank. We work with you to develop defensive strategies best suited for your case, and advise you of the likely cost.
