Being charged with a crime can be scary. Get answers to your most frequently asked questions about criminal defense attorneys here:
A criminal defense attorney handles issues surrounding a criminal arrest, investigation, prosecution, sentencing, and issues that may arise after court proceedings.
For example, a criminal defense attorney is necessary for DUI cases, drug crime charges and domestic violence matters.
Another important role of a criminal defense attorney is to help clients before the prosecuting attorney files charges against them. This can occur if a client is arrested but no charges have been filed or if a client is being investigated. If you are in this situation, you do not need to wait to hire a criminal defense attorney until charges are filed.
A criminal defense attorney will deal with the procedural issues of the crime(s)that are charged against you. She will help with representation, will deal with law enforcement agencies and/or other crime investigators, perform personal investigations and present evidence in your defense.
Most people have never had to hire an attorney and being charged with a crime can be really scary. When you first meet with an attorney you may not be sure what to ask, so we have included this list to help you out:
In Nevada, it is not always true that “if you cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed to you.” To qualify for a pro bono or free criminal defense attorney, you have to be determined to be “indigent” and it depends on the type of crime that you are charged with.
If a judge decides that you can afford to hire your own attorney, be sure you are getting the best you can afford. A low fee criminal defense attorney can mean that the attorney is not very experienced. It could also mean the lawyer has a high volume criminal practice where your case may be just another number. Low fees could also mean that the lawyer has no intention of fighting for your rights because they intend to get you to plead.
On the other hand, hiring a lawyer who charges the highest fees may not always be best. High power, high priced criminal defense attorneys may only devote their time to the client or clients that have paid the most.
For the most part, the fees charged will depend on the allegations. In most cases, for a first offense misdemeanor you should expect to spend somewhere between $1,500 and $3,5000. For gross misdemeanors and felonies, you should expect to spend closer to $5,000 or more for quality criminal defense representation.
