Beginning in 2017, Brevard County has seen a downward trend in major crime rates. In an opposite trend, police departments in the County have seen growing clearance rates, meaning that more than 1-in-4 cases successfully result in charges against the accused. Of course, this is an average, with the Melbourne Village department clearing more than 80% of open cases. As police departments get more efficient, residents who have been accused of a crime should consult a local criminal defense lawyer to evaluate their case. A criminal defense attorney can help anyone who has been charged with a crime negotiate the best possible outcome for their unique case. This may include a plea deal or even having charges dropped if a defendant's rights were violated at any point during police interaction.

How much does a criminal defense lawyer charge per hour in the Melbourne area

Based on Attorneys' reported rates, you should expect to pay between $240.00 and $308.00 per hour. This rate may be dependent on factors like experience and different specializations within criminal defense.
