Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
Fees are determined on a case by case basis. Cases involving complex facts, extensive discovery, and novel legal issues are necessarily more time intensive, and therefore more expensive. Consider that the attorney charging a low fee might be expecting to use a cookie cutter approach. The consumer should be aware that legal costs increase with novelty and complexity. The goals of representation should always be explored before the retainer agreement is signed.

23 Questions Answered
- Q. if a circuit judge sentences a defendant improperly for a misdemeanor crime is there any recourse for the defendant ?
- A: A circuit judge has jurisdiction over cases involving at least one felony charge. In that sort of case you might have plead to a misdemeanor and been placed onto DOC probation. If you believe that the sentence was illegal, then you can file a notice of appeal within 30 days of sentencing. Speak with your lawyer who handled the case about the sentence and need for appeal. You are free to hire a new and independent lawyer either to correct the claimed sentence error or to handle the appeal.
- Q. I have a warrant for arrest due to failure to appear would it be better to get legal representation or turn myself in.
- A: You best find out if there is a bond on that warrant. If so, you could surrender on the warrant, post the bond and deal with the lawyer later. If there is no bond, you definitely need to talk to a lawyer ASAP. Right now, many jails are locked down. It could be difficult to deal with retaining a lawyer from a locked down jail. Also, just getting a court hearing can be a challenge in some counties.
- Q. If I had identity theft and received a ticket due to this and now a warrant what would be my next step to getting lawyer
- A: Your inquiry is not clear whether your license was suspended due to your own identity theft or due to someone else using your identity. In either event you need to find an attorney. You could obtain friend recommendations, search online, go to Justia or any number of places. Generally, the sooner you get good legal advice, the better. The lawyer may guide you through the trial warrant which is pending.
