Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.
My office is proud to make premier representation available and affordable to everyone. We do not have set fees. Instead, we treat the fee as a collaborative discussion between attorney and prospective client in which both agree on what is fair and reasonable.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have yet to represent an actual "criminal." The State refers to my clients as criminals, but they are mistaken. I help people who are facing a current problem with the justice system. My clients are people, just like anyone else. "Criminal" is nothing more than a convenient label some folks like to use because, frankly, it's easier for them to say that than to see the real person behind the label.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Any attorney that "promises" you an outcome is blatently lying to your face. Just get up and leave at that point. No attorney can predict the future or account for every possible factor that can affect the outcome in a given case.
