Our firm believes every individual deserves the best defense money can buy. No matter where you come from everyone deserves a fair shot. No one should be deprived of hiring the best attorneys. As a matter of professional courtesy the initial consultation is never billed to the client. However, once the parties make a mutual decision to proceed with a case, a retainer agreement must be in place before services can be rendered. All fee agreements are determined on a case-by-case basis. While some matters are billed on an hourly basis, others simply require a flat fee retainer.
We believe in flexibility and accessibility. To make our services available to everyone, we accept various avenues for making a payment. The traditional methods of payment, such as checks, money orders, cashier’s checks, and cash remain available. However, some clients wish to proceed with monthly payments and, therefore, we accept payment by all major credit cards.
When it comes to criminal law cases, an experienced and effective criminal defense attorney can mean the difference between a prison sentence and reduced or dismissed charges. Even in less serious cases, a good criminal defense attorney can make a serious impact on the outcome of the case by ensuring that the rights of the accused are protected throughout the legal process. For these and other reasons, it is vital that those accused of a crime select the most competent, experienced and effective attorney available.
If you or a loved one has been accused of a crime, you need a skilled and proven criminal defense attorney on your side. Please contact The Margolin & Lawrence Law Office for a complimentary case evaluation with an expert criminal defense attorney who has extensive experience defending people charged with crimes. We may be able to intervene before charges are even filed. However, if the charges have already been filed, we can employ our vast resources to minimize or eliminate the penalties you face.
