Virginia DUI Legal Fees
While hiring an attorney to fight your criminal charge may seem like a large expense, it is truly an investment in your future. If you are convicted of a criminal offense, you will not only be required to pay expensive fines and the other costs associated with your sentence—you will also be burdened with a criminal record for the rest of your life. With an experienced defense lawyer on your side, you can improve your chances of a successful resolution to your case, whether that means the reduction, dismissal, or acquittal of your charges.
It may be tempting to hire the cheapest defense attorney you can find; however, you should keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Many lawyers who offer cheap rates can only afford to do so because they take on large case loads, which means it is unlikely that he or she will have the time to investigate your case and uncover evidence favorable to your defense. In fact, some lawyers will encourage you to simply take a plea deal, which means that you must plead guilty to your crime in exchange for a more lenient sentence.
While the Law Office of Michael C. Tillotson doesn’t offer the cheapest rates in Virginia, our reasonable rates are backed by years of experience, skill, and a proven track record of winning results. Each of our attorneys has undergone extensive training that gives them the knowledge necessary to challenge the evidence in their clients’ cases.
For your convenience, our firm charges a flat fee for our legal services. Because of our criminal defense background, we know exactly how much it will cost to handle your case and can provide you with a dollar amount upfront, helping you avoid any unexpected surprises down the road. Each part of your case is divided into different types of fees, and you won’t be charged unnecessarily if we resolve your case earlier than expected.
Some attorneys charge their clients by the hour. You have to be careful if you hire this type of attorney, as you may be charged any time you email or call them for an update on your case.
We understand that hiring a criminal defense attorney is an unexpected expense. For this reason, we have a number of payment plan options to accommodate your particular situation. Our law firm also accepts major credit cards.
