FAQ: Balmer Law Office Services & Fees

How much do your services cost and what forms of payment do you accept?

The Balmer Law Office is committed to making criminal defense services affordable. This starts with a free initial case evaluation. Following the initial case evaluation, the firm will quote a flat fee for its representation services all the way through trial. This provides the firm’s clients with certainty that, no matter how much time and effort is required for your defense, the fees are fixed. The Balmer Law Office gladly accepts credit cards as well as cash and checks as forms of payment.

If I hire the Balmer Law Office can you guarantee an outcome for my case?

No. Any attorney who guarantees results is unprofessional and likely violating his or her ethical obligations. Run — don’t walk — away from such a lawyer.

What commitments will the Balmer Law Office make to me as a client?

The Balmer Law Office commits to each client the following:

  • treating you with dignity, respect and compassion regardless of the charges you are facing or the circumstances leading up to those charges,
  • keeping you informed at all stages of the process,
  • providing you with competent and experienced advice, and
  • getting your input and informed decisions at all critical stages of the process.

How will the Balmer Law Office help me?

While each client and case is unique, the Balmer Law Office commits to following standards of representation. For each client, the firm will:

  • demand that the State provides us with all of the evidence in its possession that it intends to use against you,
  • scrutinize the evidence to ensure that it was lawfully obtained — if the evidence was unlawfully obtained or is otherwise inadmissible in court, we will file motions with the court to have the evidence suppressed so that it cannot be used against you at trial,
  • conduct a thorough review of case and statutory law on the legal issues presented in your case,
  • retain independent investigators, when appropriate, to interview witnesses or examine evidence,
  • retain expert witnesses, when appropriate, to testify on your behalf at trial,
  • prepare to litigate your case at trial, but aggressively negotiate trial alternatives with the State, and
  • direct you to resources to assist you in managing or recovering from any underlying issues that may have given rise to the criminal charges you are now facing.
