The Attorney on Retainer Philosophy

Criminal Law

Attorney Retainer Cost – Over the past several decades, life in the United States has changed drastically.  We have changed from the “Land of the Free” to the “Land of the Incarcerated.”  Today, the United States leads the entire world in incarceration rates.  Sadly, Arizona is among the top 12 states in incarceration rates in the United States.

Even peaceful honest people can be rapidly swept up into the criminal justice system on any number of victimless crimes.  Overcharging of criminal offenses is now a common occurrence and the number of mandatory prison crimes is ever growing.  Although many public defenders are highly skilled competent attorneys, their heavy case loads, and underfunded budgets can present countless challenges in spending the time necessary to offer the level of representation expected by many criminal defendants.  Moreover, the risk of an overworked or misguided prosecutor overcharging or unjustly prosecuting is an ever-present concern.  It is no secret that innocent people sometimes get convicted.

The realities of living in America today mean a high number of people will need a criminal defense attorney at some time for themselves or a loved one.  Waiting until that moment arises to identify and retain a qualified criminal defense attorney can be chaotic and extremely expensive.   Although there are other prepaid legal plans available, with those plans you have no idea who will be selected as your criminal defense attorney.  Your freedom, or the freedom of a loved one, is too important to trust to just any criminal defense attorney. – Attorney Retainer Cost

Civil Law

Attorney Retainer Cost – In today’s world, virtually anyone can sue anyone else for almost anything.  We all engage in countless transactions based either in an expressed or implied contract.  Many lawsuits arise from some alleged breach of contract over terms that are unclear at best.  Having an attorney standing by at the beginning of a dispute can sometimes resolve it before unnecessary litigation ensues.  If litigation does occur, an attorney still is an indispensable requirement for a just outcome.

In addition to contract matters, negligence is also a common source of countless lawsuits.  All people have an obligation to act reasonably.  When another person’s unreasonable actions cause harm, a lawsuit, or a good faith threat of a lawsuit, may be necessary.  Having an attorney standing by to defend your actions can sometimes be a deterrent to an otherwise expensive lawsuit.

Civil litigation is almost always an expensive proposition.  Having an attorney you trust standing by to advise you about your options and best course of action, can avoid lots of costly mistakes that are even more costly to correct later.

Although there are other prepaid legal plans available, with those plans you have no idea who will be selected as your attorney should you have a need for an attorney in the civil law arena.  Civil litigation and all the possibly life-changing financial implications are simply too important to trust to just any lawyer.  The lawyers at the law firm of Marc J. Victor, P.C. will guide you through it in the most cost-effective and stress-free way possible. – Attorney Retainer Cost
