Choosing the Right Lawyer

When you have been charged with a criminal offence, selecting the right criminal lawyer is the one of the most important and difficult decisions you will have to make. A criminal conviction can have serious and far-reaching consequences on your future and, as a result, choosing competent and experienced lawyer can be one of the most important factors in determining the ultimate outcome of your criminal charges. That being said, picking the right lawyer is more complicated then asking their hourly rate or how s/he may dress. In fact, choosing someone that you are comfortable with and can communicate with are equally, if not more, important than any other factor you consider in making your decision on which lawyer best suits your needs.

Court fees are usually contingent on the complexity of each case and nature of the criminal charges you are facing. To simplify the issues relating to costs, Mr. Michael does not normally charge on a per hour basis and instead charges a fixed rate, or “block fee,” for different stages of the proceeding. By doing this, we hope that our clients will not only take comfort in knowing the cost of their case from the outset but also to add an elment of transparency to our billing practices.

Featured Testimonials

What do our Customers saying about us?

  • "I would like to express my deep appreciation for the skill, determination with which you have pursued this matter on my behalf. I hope never to be in a position in which it becomes necessary to recommend your services, but if it were to happen, I would do so without hesitation."
  • "The excellent outcome is in my view attributable to your input into the matter. I feel that without your expertise and wise counsel, we would certainly have had the potential for a protracted period of time where my son's and my time would have been taken up with the tension and uncertainty of facing what were likely to be emotionally difficult proceedings."
  • "I would like the thank you for the professional way you handled my last court case. If it wasn't for your sound advice and instructions I'm sure the result would have been less than satisfactory. I am absolutely thrilled with the result."
