The Dangers of Representing Yourself from a Portland Criminal Defense Lawyer

Some people think they can save money by representing themselves in court. This is called pro se defense and people are fully entitled to do so, assuming they are of sound mind. The problem with this is that most people who represent themselves wind up going to jail. There are simply too many things to examine in a case and too many pitfalls for an inexperienced person. While it may seem expensive, a defense attorney can actually potentially save you thousands of dollars in fines and significant time in jail.

If you worry that you cannot afford a defense lawyer, this fear is generally unfounded. First, Kroll & Johnson offers a free consultation. During this consultation, we can explain exactly what we can do for you and your case and discuss our fee arrangement. We work with clients to make sure that they are comfortable with our fees and are not breaking the bank for our services.

We believe that each person, regardless of their financial circumstances, deserves top quality representation. Therefore we are willing to negotiate and come up with a fee that adequately compensates us for our services while allowing you to have an aggressive attorney advocating for your defense. There are no surprises or sudden increases in our billing. We will make sure that you fully understand what you are getting for your money and make sure that the arrangement works for your circumstances.

At the very least, you should take advantage of the free consultation at Kroll & Johnson before trying to go it alone. If, after this consultation, you decide to go with someone else or represent yourself, there is no financial obligation or hard feelings. You will not get a hard sell here, only honest legal advice.
