I offer a free 30 minute consultation to any person who calls my office.
If you decide to hire me, I will provide you with a written fee agreement that sets out what I will charge for my services. The agreement will be between you and my law corporation, N.J. Preovolos Law Corporation.
Typically I quote a “flat fee” so that you know from the beginning exactly what you will be paying. The amount depends on the complexity of the case and the amount of work involved. If the services of an expert witness (e.g., a psychologist, medical doctor, private investigator, etc.) are required for your defence, you will have to pay the applicable fees in addition to mine.
I accept payment by cheque or credit card (Visa or Mastercard) as well as cash.
If you cannot pay the entire fee at one time, payment by instalments can be arranged.
Should I talk to the police if I am arrested?
The safest thing to do is say nothing. If you are in custody at the police station or are being detained elsewhere (in a police car, at an alleged crime scene, etc.), be polite and respectful but firmly tell the police that you do not want to discuss anything with them. The only information you should offer is your name. Ask to speak to your lawyer if you have one or to an on-call legal aid lawyer if you don’t. Even if you tell the police you are not interested in talking, they will try to get you to talk. Don’t do it! Unless you are absolutely certain that you have done nothing wrong, you will only hurt yourself by trying to “talk your way out” of the situation. Plenty have tried and lived to regret it.
