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.

39 Questions Answered
- Q. Do I need a lawyer with me if the police want to question me about a crime
- A: Unless you are absolutely sure they are not there to investigate YOU as the perpetrator, then YES, YOU NEED A LAWYER. The lawyer can help you understand how police conduct investigations, the terminology they may use, and how various answers might be interpreted.
- Q. in sentencing where time is run concurrent is credit also run concurrent
- A: Credit for time served can differ from charge to charge. If it’s different, then running it concurrently does not change the difference. The differences can be more pronounced where the charges are unrelated or originate in different countries. A comprehensive plea agreement can sometimes resolve the differences, especially when there is different credit for counts within the same information, or where the accused is held in one county and there is a hold from another county. A”hold” is not an arrest. Best bet here is to talk to your lawyer.
- Q. Hello. I have been charged with aggravated battery with firearm with great bodily harm in Florida.
- A: You could hire a lawyer to explore your options. The law may have changed since you left the country. The lawyer needs to figure out if yours is a stand your ground case, or not. The lawyer needs to consider whether the old or new laws apply to your situation. Obviously, it’s a serious matter. Those discussions need to be confidential. There may be other considerations, such as the “victim” criminal history, existence of witnesses or video and effect of statute of limitations. It is not illegal to defend yourself against the imminent commission of a violent felony.
