There are a range of considerations which can determine how legal fees are calculated by criminal defence lawyers. Certain criteria can include, but are not limited to: the nature of the charge, number of charges, years of experience, complexity of the case, mode of trial, number of witnesses, length of trial, number of pretrial/trial applications involved; etc.
When it comes to the field of criminal law, it is always important to stay up to date on recent case law. This is important as there are always new developments in this area of practice which can change how current issues have been decided and how substantive laws have been interpreted.
