Aggressive Board Certified Representation at a Fair Price

Nobody saves for the day when they will need to hire a lawyer. The cost of legal fees is a big question for people who hire us. One of the questions we get all the time is, what can you do for me at that price? Invariably, we answer the same way. When you hire Chernoff Law, you aren’t just paying for the time involved, but also for our years of experience trying and winning tough cases. Our experience and reputation means we can sometimes get charges dropped before charge or trial, when another lawyer can’t get his foot in the door. We know and understand the Judges you will be brought before. As a result, we can sometimes save you money by geting your bond reduced.

We do everything we can to make sure that every individual who comes to see us has the ability to afford us. As well, we make sure that our fee allows us the ability to do everything we can to save our client.

The fees that different criminal defense lawyers charge can vary greatly. One lawyer may charge you $200 and another may charge you $5,000 for the very same criminal case. Often the representation you receive will vary accordingly, but not always. You should be very careful of lawyers who seem to be charging you too little. There may be additional fees for court appearances and other services. Likewise, you should be concerned about any lawyer who charges you a high retainer fee without consideration of what really needs to be accomplished in your case. Criminal cases, like people, are never the same.

The bottom line is, when you are hiring a criminal firm or lawyer, you are not comparing apples to apples. Most of the time, you are more likely deciding between grapes and watermelons! These days, anybody can afford a fancy website. When you are deciding on a lawyer, you must consider experience, reputation, ability, certification and past associations. Only when all of this is equal, can you compare the price of lawyers.

The best course of action is to visit several attorneys and spend some time discussing your case. In a face to face meeting you will be able to get a sense of their dedication and concern for your situation. Just a phone call will never reveal this. Plan on spending more for a lawyer who has experience and training and who has an excellent reputation as a trial lawyer. With that type of lawyer, you are likely to get what you pay for. However, you are never going to know whether a lawyer is right for you unless you meet him and see how he responds to your concerns.

We take all major credit cards. Please contact us as soon as possible. Often the earlier you get a criminal defense lawyer involved, the easier will be the resolution of your case.
