How Much Does a Criminal Defense Lawyer Cost?

The cost of hiring a Denver criminal defense attorney depends a great deal on the nature and severity of the charges and the complexity of your case. At the Law Offices of Steven J. Pisani, we primarily offer flat-rate representation rates to provide our clients with the most affordable and predictable legal fees.

A flat fee allows the client to know the up-front the total cost of all legal services to be rendered. Phone calls, consultations, legal research and drafting, court appearances, photocopying, and other out-of-pocket business expenses are covered by this flat fee. Flat fees are typically paid as a retainer before legal work begins.

Our firm also offers hourly-based representation. This is useful for very complex matters or simply if the client would like advice that goes beyond an initial consultation.

A Greener Law Firm, Lower Costs

The Law Offices of Steven J. Pisani believe in using technology to better serve the client and the environment. At our Denver Criminal Defense firm, we use “green” or environmentally friendly technologies, such as electronic discovery, paperless office suites, high-efficiency electronic equipment, virtual fax, secured e-forms, electronic filing & storage. Not only do these technologies allow for deeper client interaction, but they keep office overhead low by reducing waste and consumption. Additionally, our firm is centrally located in Downtown Denver, just blocks from the Denver Courts. Our central location reduces travel time, parking and fuel fees that you would otherwise pay for at a firm located away from downtown.

The money the firm saves on electricity, storage, office supplies, paper products, travel time and fuel is then passed on to the client in the form of affordable Denver criminal defense lawyer representation. When you first meet with a lawyer to discuss your case, know the exact charges against you, your court date, your bail amount and any other facts to receive the most accurate fee quote. The Law Offices of Steven J. Pisani is proud to be one of the most reasonably priced, comprehensive criminal legal solutions available in the Denver-Metro Area.

Payment Methods

For the convenience of our clients, the Law Firm accepts payment through a secure site online, over the phone with one of our friendly staff, or in person at the office.  The Firm accepts all major credit/debit cards, money orders and personal checks.
