Arrested for sexual solicitation how much will this cost me?

Arrested for sexual solicitation in DC

So you were arrested for sexual solicitation and now you want to know how much will this cost me?  Everyone says I don’t care how much it cost – I can’t have this on my record so I am willing to pay whatever it cost.  Whooaaa horsey…… not so fast.  Just because there was a mistake in judgment or your words were misconstrued that doesn’t mean you give away the farm. 

Don’t give away the farm

Lawyers cannot “bleed you dry” just because you are stressed, worried about your job, family and community stigma.  In fact, our ethic rules require “(a) A lawyer shall not make an agreement for, charge, or collect an unreasonable fee or an unreasonable amount for expenses. The factors to be considered in determining the reasonableness of a fee include the following”:

  • the time and labor required, the novelty and difficulty of the questions involved, and the skill requisite to perform the legal service properly;
  • the likelihood, if apparent to the client, that the acceptance of the particular employment will preclude other employment by the lawyer;
  • the fee customarily charged in the locality for similar legal services;
  • the amount involved and the results obtained;
  • the time limitations imposed by the client or by the circumstances;
  • the nature and length of the professional relationship with the client;
  • the experience, reputation, and ability of the lawyer or lawyers performing the services; and
  • whether the fee is fixed or contingent.
So what is the Cost for a lawyer for a Prostitution Charge in DC

Obviously, it differs from lawyer to lawyer given the factors listed above.   However, most people think it would cost you less with a less experienced lawyer to handle a prostitution case in the District of Columbia.    That’s not exactly true, an experienced lawyer will spend less time because an experienced lawyer has done this hundred’s of time.    So back to the question at hand,  prostitution cases are not very complex (usually) and most of the time spent on the case is preparing and doing about 3 court hearings.    So what should you pay for a good criminal lawyer to handle a prostitution case in DC and Maryland?  Like most urban courthouses, the dockets are crowded and so a lawyer spends more time waiting for cases to be called which is why the cost of a prostitution case in DC may cost more than 1400.00 dollars.    The cost for a lawyer to handle a prostitution case for a first offense cost is usually between $1400 to $3000.00 dollars.   Remember more does not mean better.  We handle sexual solicitation cases that are prosecuted under DC Code.

  

So why does your firm charge less than 1500.00 dollars to handle a prostitution case?

Our firm stays on the cutting edge of technology and therefore, we can do work cheaper and faster.   For example, providing documents to our client through a closed portal secured system.  We rarely if ever use snail mail to communicate with clients because the mail is slow and cost more.   Using a secured closed portal we communicate with you, provide dates, and share documents.  As we have said in other blog articles (Cost of a DUI lawyer) times have changed and criminal lawyers need to be more efficient with their productivity.   I get and understand some clients feel as though if the lawyer has beautiful marble floors and beautiful paintings on the wall then he must be good. This is a myth in the legal system.   Without question, the more your lawyer pays for his overhead, the more you will pay for his service.

How much is the Court cost?

If you have had a traffic case in another state, then you have heard people complain about the court cost.  That’s not necessarily true in the District of Columbia for a prostitution charge.   If your case goes through diversion there is typically no court cost.
