Tulsa, Oklahoma Criminal Defense Attorney Fees
As with anything in life, you get what you pay for. When it comes to hiring a defense attorney, you don’t want to leave your future freedom in the hands of an inexperienced lawyer simply because they’re cheap.
We at Edge Law Firm understand how tight money can be when you or a loved one is charged with a crime. We strive to keep our costs competitive and offer payment solutions to accommodate our clients’ financial needs.
About Our Free Consultation
We offer all of our new and returning clients a free no strings attached consultation. This allows us to hear and go over the specifics of your case, while giving you a chance to get to know us to determine whether we are the right fit for you. During the consultation, we will give you an estimate of the legal fees necessary for a thorough defense of your case. The estimate will be given to you in writing so you can be sure that no hidden or unexplained fees will come up later on.
How an Attorney’s Fees are Determined
Attorneys set their legal fees in accordance to their overhead costs, or the cost it takes to run the company. For that reason, when you see an attorney running large advertising campaigns with elaborate billboards or television commercials, you can be sure that their fees will typically be inflated to cover the high marketing costs. At Edge Law Firm, we choose to keep our marketing costs low by relying on word-of-mouth referrals. This allows us to set our rates at a competitive level even though the experience, integrity, and reputation of our law firm is exceptional.
DUI Defense Experience
Our founder, attorney Bruce Edge, actually wrote the book on Oklahoma DUI law—a comprehensive guide that is used by attorneys all over the state. Of the thousands upon thousands of attorneys in the U.S., less than 50 are board certified in DUI defense and Bruce Edge is one of them.
We have hired the former Deputy Director of DPS, to work exclusively defending driving privileges.
In addition to our experience, we are also unique in the way we approach DUI cases. Our initial goal is always to get your charges completely dismissed, so unlike many other attorneys, we do not consider a plea bargain a successful defense tactic. We assume every case we handle will go to trial and start our defense form that view point. This means your case will be thoroughly analyzed and any decision will be made after considering all the facts and options. We make sure to review all the facts so that we can determine the best possible defense strategy for every one of our clients.
Determining Defense Fees
The amount you pay for your defense will depend upon several factors, such as:
- The complexity of your case
- Your prior criminal record
- The severity of the charges against you
- The attorney’s education
- The attorney’s rate of success
- The attorney’s overall experience
Considering the experience and success of our attorneys, we believe you will find our rates quite reasonable. We strive to keep our prices competitive and once we hear the specifics of your case, we are always up front about how much it will cost to defend you. We charge one flat rate so you can be sure that there will be no hidden or unexplained fees tacked on.
