Absolutely—at my firm, anyway. We understand folks charged with crimes need all the support and help they can get. We definitely encourage that from your friends and family members, because it helps you as a person.
And make no mistake, we also understand the importance of friends and family chipping in to help you pay one of the most worthwhile expenses in your life—for an experienced criminal defense lawyer you trust. While a good lawyer isn’t cheap, it’s an investment into protecting two priceless gifts: your freedom and your future. You need the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’ll be protected. Getting a discount on a cheap lawyer won’t help, and it can definitely hurt when it matters most.
You’re Always in Charge
Even when others help you pay the fee, we make it clear to them you’re still the boss. This case is about you, not anyone else. The person whose life it affects the most is you. So, we make it absolutely, positively clear to anyone who helps you out that while we are incredibly thankful for their contribution, it is you who makes the ultimate decision on how your case is handled.
We help captain your ship, of course. But you own the ship. It doesn’t matter who helps you pay for it. And we’re just the captain. We tell you where we think you should go, but in the end, you do what’s best for you and nobody else.
Schedule a Strategy Session Today
If you’ve got any questions about your criminal case, we offer a free, no-pressure strategy session where you can bring your friends and relatives to get their questions answered too. But if you want to meet alone with us in complete confidence, we respect and honor that—even if it means politely excusing everyone else from the room. Don’t worry; we won’t make you the bad guy there—we’ve done it so many times, it will make everyone feel comfortable.
