Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to hire an attorney or can I represent myself?
Often a client without extensive knowledge of the law has a hard time interpreting the intricacies associated with criminal defense. Reeves DiVenere Wright has the expertise and dedication to help you determine if your legal situation merits a trial, or if an admission of guilt or a lesser charge may be the best resolution for your case. Our attorneys will provide the thorough, aggressive defense you deserve, beginning with a free consultation for prospective criminal defense clients during which you can ask all of your preliminary questions and consult with the attorney to determine your individual representation needs. Please contact our office at 828-268-9640 to schedule your free consultation.
What are the fees associated with your services?
No case is ever the same and each presents unique issues and sensitivities and therefore must be evaluated on a case to case basis. Please call our office to schedule your free criminal defense consultation and we will speak with you regarding potential fees regarding your specific needs.
Will the information I share with you be confidential?
Yes, the attorney-client privilege means that your communication with us is confidential. This remains true even if you do not hire us.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
This is probably the most frequently asked question and the most difficult to forecast. While we can estimate a precise time with certain cases, others are harder to predict. Varying factors can cause some cases to last from as little as a few weeks to as long as a few years. While your attorney can make an estimate once hearing all of your individual issues in a consultation, it is impossible to predict all issues that will arise once litigation is commenced.
Do I have to pay for my initial meeting with Reeves DiVenere Wright?
No. All consultations dealing with Criminal Law are free. Call our office and our highly qualified staff will be pleased to schedule a time for you to come in.
