Effective and Affordable Criminal Defense Attorney
At LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. we pride ourselves on providing the best possible value to our clients while at the same time, delivering the highest level of legal defense available in Michigan. Affordable does not mean cheap; it means a fair price for top quality criminal defense.
As with most every profession, criminal defense attorneys in Michigan come in a wide variety of price ranges. Similarly, they also come in a very broad range of quality and effectiveness. Unfortunately for the prospective client who is charged with a felony or misdemeanor and who is in need of emergency help, it is really difficult to know what lawyer is the best for them and who charges a fair and reasonable fee. Often times, the best fit for a client is not a lawyer who is the most expensive and is virtually never the least expensive. It is possible to find an effective and affordable criminal defense attorney but a client should not trust their fate to the lowest bidder.
How do you know if a lawyer is charging a fair and reasonable fee? Attorney fees are guided by the Michigan Rules of Professional Conduct. These rules provide that a lawyer’s fee must be “reasonable.” Factors determining what is “reasonable” include the relative complexity of the case and specialized nature of the matter, the lawyer’s training and experience in the field in question, the preparation and study the lawyer is able to give the matter, and the time commitment that will likely be necessary to handle the case. Other factors include:
- The time and labor required, the novelty and difficulty of the questions involved, and the skill requisite to perform the legal service properly.
- The likelihood, if apparent to the client, that the acceptance of the particular employment will preclude other employment by the lawyer;
- The time limitations imposed by the client or by the circumstances;
- The experience, reputation, and ability of the lawyer or lawyers performing the services.
