What is a Flat Fee?
Most criminal defense attorneys in Arizona charge a Flat Fee. This means the client pays one fee instead of paying for each hour the attorney spends on the case. The benefit of this method is the client knows how much the case will cost at the beginning and does not have to worry about an attorney hitting him with a large bill later. The amount of the Flat Fee can vary greatly and depends on the nature of the case and the experience of the attorney. Generally, someone fresh out of law school will charge less than someone with many years of experience.
