“Ten Grand to Start”

 Posted on October 05, 2009 in Uncategorized

I talked to a lady this weekend who had been looking for a criminal-defense lawyer for her dad (I had a conflict; she wasn't seeking to hire me). She said that one of the lawyers had asked for "ten thousand dollars to start."

Ten thousand dollars is would be on the low end of the range of reasonable fees for the case, but "to start" is dangerous language when you're hiring a criminal-defense lawyer.
