"At Daniel D. Nawara, P.A., I pride myself on being transparent about what fees my clients can expect for criminal cases. I also pride myself in offering cost-effective representation. Any lawyer that tells you a great lawyer will cost you twice the amount is probably the same lawyer quoting you the fee. You can have the best of both worlds, quality representation, and a fair reasonable price."
In Florida and throughout the United States, approximately 90 percent of all defendants, when faced with a criminal charge, remain unrepresented or choose to rely on the services of the public defender’s office to handle their case. In fact, most people accused with a crime do not even think about hiring private counsel. This is in despite the overwhelming statistical evidence that private attorneys get better results for their clients such as shorter sentences, lower incarceration rates, and have greater probabilities that a charge will be reduced or dropped.
At Daniel D. Nawara, P.A., I believe this is a major result of individuals who have a mindset that they cannot afford private counsel. To show that one can have cost-effective representation, and quality without the cost, this law firm publishes a range of suggested fees for the most commonly prosecuted criminal offenses. The listing is simply intended to show what this firm typically charges to handle a particular type of criminal matter. These fees may vary according to the nature, complexity, and facts involved in a case. Also, these fees only include pre-trial litigation, and do not include jury trial costs.

Due to the nature of felony litigation varying widely, it is simply impossible to quote suggested prices even for the most common felony charges. Some factors this firm considers when quoting a fee for a felony charge are the facts of the case, applicable defenses, exposure of the accused, complexity of the charge, and numerous other factors.
At Daniel D. Nawara P.A., this firm works hard to provide its clients with the most aggressive, yet cost-effective defense representation in every felony case it handles. I understand there can be financial limitations and I work with my clients to find payment solutions without comprising high quality legal services. Given the high stakes involved in felony litigation, no person accused of a felony offense should have to rely on or be forced to accept the services of the public defender.
If you have been accused of a criminal offense in Florida, representation by a private attorney may be a viable option to consider in the defense of your case. Contact Daniel D. Nawara, P.A., today for a no charge consultation.
