Legal Costs in Athens
There is no one-size-fits-all price for criminal lawyers. Often, attorneys who take on a large volume of cases will charge less; however, the tradeoff is that he or she will not have the time necessary to dedicate to your defense. Sometimes, these volume-focused lawyers will advise clients to plead guilty in exchange for a reduced sentence.
Another thing to consider when it comes to legal costs is how the attorney determines his or her fees. Some firms work on an hourly rate, which means that you will be billed even when the attorney takes your call or answers an email. Other firms charge a flat fee for their services, so you know what to expect when the bill comes.
