How Much Does it Cost for a Criminal Defense Attorney?

Charles J. Uliano joined the Law Firm as Senior Partner of Chamlin Uliano & Walsh in 1979. Since then he has focused his professional practice mainly on civil and criminal litigation. In the following video, Mr. Ulinao provides important information you should know when hiring an attorney for your criminal defense case.

In a criminal case, you should be aware of the fact that we charge a retainer, but that retainer is based upon the amount of work that is going to have to be done and what we think is practical. You do not waste your money with us, we do not take cases or retainers just for the sake of taking them, in other words, we are here to help you, you get your dollars worth with us because we are practical. I am not going to take a retainer from someone and then not properly earn that retainer for them. The important thing is that there is trust and there is honesty and that is what you get from us in any criminal matter that we handle for you.

What Happens in a Personal Injury Case?

Civilly on a personal injury case, the case is taken on a contingency meaning that you do not receive a recovery, we do not receive a fee and that is the way it should be in that area of the law, but you should know that we pride ourselves in being practical on how we handle the personal injury case. The old story is you have to wait three years, not necessarily, we evaluate the claim, we see what we believe the case is worth, and then we do our job with reference to pressing your case, and hopefully, we can get the case resolved in an expedite matter for you. There is no sense of waiting around three years to recover money when you can recover it in the first year.
