Attorney Fees

Fees and Payment Policies:
Reasonable flat fees and hourly rates.

When we talk, I'll also tell you about my fees. We understand that the cost of an attorney is an expense that you weren't planning on. So we offer fees at a flat rate to assist you with your budgeting. You may also pay us by the hour.

Of course I accept cash or checks. But you might be interested to know that for your convenience, we'll also gladly accept payment by credit card.

In any case, the initial phone consultation with me is free, so there is no risk on your part-and you will learn just what your rights and options are. When we are finished, if you're not convinced that I will be able to protect you to your complete satisfaction, then you can simply decide not to hire me. I won't trouble you again . . . and you'll owe me nothing.

Some individuals do try to defend themselves without legal assistance, but this is usually risky because the penalties can be harsh. Good legal representation can decrease many of these concerns.

You can discover for yourself how I can help save your license and freedom by calling me at 215-822-1888.

10 biggest mistakes

The 10 biggest mistakes most people make after being arrested for a DUI in Pennsylvania...and how to avoid them.

  1. Not taking the matter seriously. This is a charge that will follow you for the rest of your life, if you are convicted. The additional insurance charges alone could cost you thousands of dollars.

  2. Not hiring an attorney. The law is complex and you need competent representation. You must raise the right defenses at the right time or you will lose them. Facts will disappear, memories fade and witnesses vanish. A winnable case can quickly become a loser.

  3. Hiring an attorney based on the amount of the fee alone. The State has almost unlimited resources when it comes to your case. You need to hire an attorney and pay a fee which will allow him to put time and effort into your case to counter the prosecution. Attorneys must earn enough in the time they spend on your case in order to keep their doors open and make a living wage. If you go too low, your attorney will not be able to put in the time necessary to protect you. Look for a reasonable, predictable fee, not the lowest.

  4. Not complying with driver's license laws. You could lose your right to drive.

  5. Driving after your license has been taken away.

  6. Not taking full advantage of your constitutional rights.

  7. Taking the prosecutor's first offer. The first offer is not a bargain, it's just to get rid of your case with the least amount of work. Very few cases are dismissed or reduced to a non-alcohol charge at this stage. You do not give the judge an opportunity to rule on constitutional challenges. You give up your right to raise these issues and make the State prove it's case.

  8. Fail to appear in Court. The Court will issue a bench warrant for your arrest and revoke any bond. The next time you are stopped for a traffic infraction, you will be spending some time in jail and posting a bond for your future appearances.

  9. Talk to anyone but an attorney about your case. Anything you say to them can be used against you.

  10. Think that talking to numerous attorneys will help you handle it on your own. You need to have an attorney go to Court with you

Testimonials

 

After receiving a DUI and not knowing where to turn, my boyfriend and I went searching on the internet. Margiotti & Mittman's site stood out from the others. One reason was they/he put emphasis on the importance of the preliminary hearing. In my case, the officer also accused and charged me with being in an accident, which i was not. If it wasn't for the luck of finding Jeremy Mittman I would have been wrongly charged with that accident and a DUI. Due to Jeremy's courtroom presentation the judge dropped all charges against me and I credit Jeremy Mittman's expertise for that. I would recommend him to anyone facing such a life altering situation.

Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you both for all the work in my behalf to clear me. I was so depressed in February and March. Things were uncovered during the case that made me believe it was beatable, and it truly turned out that way. The weight of the world was lifted off my back. You're the best!

I wanted to thank you and congratulate you for a brilliant defense strategy and resolution on my case.

As you know, when I walked into your office, I was a broken man, with no hope, and very little to look forward to. Not only did you give personal advice that helped me tremendously, you also guided me through every step of my defense strategy options and made sure I stayed focused on my family during this most difficult time in my life.

The creativity and resourcefulness that you showed during the development of my case was encouraging to see. You seemed to know what moves to make every step of the way. Most important to me was the fact that during this process, little by little; you brought me hope and made sure that I could continue to carry on with my job.

I will never forget what you did for us. This case was not just about a brilliant defense, it was about keeping a positive attitude during this most stressful time. You somehow managed to keep it all together. My family and I thank you. So much was on the line for me.

Thanks Again!
