Common fee FAQs

Q. Can I just walk away after the free initial consultation with a criminal lawyer?

Q. Can I pay for legal services in instalments? 

A. Yes depending on your circumstances, but you will have to pay before the legal work starts.

Q. Can I pay a flat fee for service rather than an hourly rate?

A. Yes, block fees are possible for most criminal defense law cases.
