Are You Facing Obstruction of Justice Charges?

If you are facing obstruction of justice charges, you are at risk of severe penalties, including fines and time in prison. You will benefit from hiring a skilled Hawthorne obstruction of justice attorney who will evaluate your case and help build your defense.

Defending Against Obstruction of Justice Charges

Did you know that there are several ways one can be convicted of obstruction of justice? When an individual interferes with the works of the judicial system, law enforcement, or regulatory agencies through making bribes, threats, as well as tampering with or destroying evidence, they will more than likely be punished for those acts. A Hawthorne obstruction of justice attorney will protect your rights and help challenge the introduction of certain evidence if you go to trial.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It's important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice's billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
