Following an arrest for a criminal offense, there is panic. Will I go to jail? Will I have a criminal record? How much will it cost me? And above all, how will I choose my lawyer?
The problem is, it’s hard to find a criminal lawyer by word of mouth, simply because few people want to spread the word that they’ve been criminally charged.
Who is the best criminal lawyer in Montreal? Here are rather the ones we would recommend*:
- Cormier Simard Lawyers
- Nadine Touma, lawyer
- Marc Labelle, lawyer
- Battista Lawyers
- Michel Massicotte, lawyer
- Lida Sara Nouraie, lawyer
- Desjardins Côté, Lawyers
How much does the services of these lawyers cost? Without knowing their exact rates, let’s say that lawyers in high demand can charge $ 15,000 for a short trial, and much more for long cases. Lawyers with less media coverage will be more in the range of $ 8,000 for a trial. Cases that do not go to trial (client pleads guilty) typically range between $ 3,000 and $ 8,000 depending on the sentence work. Junior lawyers sometimes work for lower fees.
