Common Types of Payment Plans for Colorado Defense Cases
Most law firms in Colorado Springs will charge a retainer upfront, which is billed against at their hourly rate to cover all costs related to the case throughout the Pre-Trial and Jury Trial process. The Law Offices of Clifton Black charges a flat fee for most criminal cases that covers the entire Pre-Trial process and a separate hourly, trial fee. We understand that very few cases go to trial and fee that charging for it upfront just isn’t fair. Each case is unique – a one size fits all fee structure may not fit your case.
For several years, our firm has offered payment plans that require ⅔ of the flat fee down with the remainder of the balance to be paid in full within three months. While we still offer this payment plan for qualified clients, we are now happy to announce two out-of-office financing options! These new financing options allow qualified clients to retain our firm with little to no money down, extended payment plans of your choosing, and more.
How Criminal Attorney Fees Are Determined
Every case is unique, even if the charges involved are the same. The smallest details revealed during investigation and even the defendant’s background can make the difference in the defense strategy that is used. This means that the fee to fund a proper defense strategy should be determined only after reviewing many of the factors involved in your case.
Your Colorado criminal lawyer will examine the following factors, among others, in compiling a reasonable fee plan for your case.
- Did the charge and/or conviction fall under state or federal law?
- Were the charges misdemeanor or felony in nature?
- What was the degree of the misdemeanor or felony charge?
- Was there only one charge involved or multiple charges?
- Does the defendant have prior criminal history?
- Is there available evidence to support the defense such as witness statements, affidavits, video, and other evidence?
- Will the case be taken before a jury trial?
- Are outside expert witnesses necessary to help refute the charges?
- Other factors specific to your individual case
