Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a defense attorney cost?

The average cost to hire a criminal defense attorney generally ranges from $100 to $350 per hour. Costs can vary, however, depending on the lawyer’s fees and the complexity of the case. Cases that involve more research, pre-trial time and negotiation may cost more. 

Other factors are the lawyer’s skill, experience and reputation. High-profile lawyers might charge higher rates than newer lawyers or those with less of a notable track record. 

To find out how much it will cost you to hire a defense lawyer, contact top-rated lawyers in your area.

How do I find a good defense attorney?

Take the time to carefully and thoroughly research criminal defense attorneys near you. Read testimonials from past clients, and make sure the attorneys you’re considering are properly licensed. 

You should also make sure the attorney has experience with your type of case. Some defense lawyers specialize in DUI cases while others specialize in assault, for example. 

The last step is to contact several defense attorneys and establish communication with them. Ask the right questions, and ask them to send you a breakdown of their pricing before you hire anyone.  

What does a criminal defense attorney do?

A criminal defense attorney takes on cases dealing with criminal charges or allegations, such as domestic violence, DUIs, drug possession, assault and more. They will manage a defendant’s case through each stage and may seek negotiations with prosecutors to avoid trial via a plea bargain. They may also examine witnesses, argue sentencing, research the judge presiding over the trial and gather evidence, such as character witnesses. 

How do lawyers get paid if they lose a case?

Lawyers typically charge for their time (typically a hourly rate) regardless of whether they win a case. Sometimes, the losing party is ordered to pay the other party’s lawyer fees on top of their own. Some lawyers also work on contingency, meaning they will take a percentage of the awarded amount only if they successfully win the case. 

Before hiring a lawyer, make sure you understand their fee structure.

I don't even no where to begin. I can tell you where you should tho, right here with Daniel Irvin. He is amazing, not just in the courtroom or his legal mind which both are unsurpassed but the man as a person is one of the greatest, most caring, generous men I've ever met. At a point in my life where I had all but lost my faith in humanity, Daniel not only kept my dear friend from jail and a huge life destroyer he completely restored my faith that there are still good people in this world. I was and am the victim of a horrific accident leaving me wheelchair bound and reeling in debt. The person who ran the red light and forever changed my life kept on going. Daniel continued working her cases and got her to be able to stay home and take care of me and fix her future. He then told me he was waving his entire fee and the year he spent working her case was all on him. I'm not writing this review because he waived his fee. He knew nothing of my situation until his last day representing her. He basically donated a year of his time and talents at his expense doing the best possible job anyone could do for no personal gain whatsoever. If being represented by the best criminal defense attorney there is and being treated like a human not a number are important to you then look no further. Daniel earned this review for his excellent work as an attorney It is with honor and gratitude I bestow he the rest. No not everybody or maybe anybody else will ever get their entire fee waved but he will work with you on affordable payments and never sacrifice the quality of his work. Thanl
