Is it Expensive to Hire a Criminal Lawyer in Jacksonville FL?

Were you arrested for Florida Grand Theft in St Johns County?  Did you receive a notice to appear for Florida possession of marijuana in Clay County?  Is your child facing Jacksonville juvenile criminal charge in Duval County?  If so, you have probably thought about hiring a Jacksonville criminal attorney to defend the case.  One of the main questions that people have when hiring an attorney is “How Much is a Jacksonville Lawyer for a Criminal Case?”  You may be wondering if you can afford an attorney or if a lawyer will be too expensive.

The cost of a lawyer in Jacksonville will depend on the criminal charge or charges that you are facing.  Felony charges are more serious than misdemeanor charges.  That means that a felony attorney retainer is usually more than a misdemeanor case.  All other factors alike, a felony grand theft case is going to cost more than a petty theft.  A Jacksonville petty theft case is going to cost more than a Jacksonville traffic ticket.  This is obvious because of the severity of the charges.  There are some circumstances that may be different.  For example, a Jacksonville domestic battery case is a very serious misdemeanor charge.  So is a Jacksonville driving under the influence case.  Although these criminal charges are misdemeanors, they may end up costing more than a felony case.  For instance, a domestic violence case could easily cost more than a felony Florida habitual traffic offender driving on a suspended license case.
