There is never a good time to be arrested and most people don't budget for the unexpected expense of hiring a criminal defense attorney. If the number one concern of a person charged with a crime is the potential consequences they face, usually the second concern is how much it will cost to hire a criminal defense lawyer? The short answer to the question of how much it will cost is; it depends. That answer may be unsatisfying but it is certainly true. The cost of a hiring a criminal defense attorney in Maryland or the District of Columbia can vary based on several different things. For example, the attorney's experience, ability, and credentials can all vary which in turn will vary the cost of retaining their services. In addition to those variables, the facts of each case as well as the specific charges one is facing will vary the cost. Whether your first concern is the cost of hiring an attorney or the potential penalties, you need to immediately contact the aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorneys at our firm. Gracia & Mintz are available 24 hours a day to address your concerns and help guide through the process.

It can be easy to find a cheap lawyer, but it can prove much more difficult to find the best criminal defense lawyer for you and your situation.
