    Top rated criminal defense lawyer with more than 23 years of experience and 500+ cases with outstanding results  

Southern Miami-Dade County, including Homestead, Naranja, Leisure City, and a large portion of the Everglades, is much more rural and less glitzy than Miami. Unfortunately the area suffers from widespread poverty, and as a result, robbery, burglary and theft occur at a notably higher rate than the national average. If you face criminal charges in Miami-Dade County, finding a criminal defense lawyer to represent you is a wise choice. A criminal defense attorney who is familiar with the area will have regional insight into the law enforcement practices and be able to interrogate witnesses and review or gather evidence on your behalf.

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

Based on Attorneys' reported rates, you should expect to pay between $321.00 and $471.00 per hour. This rate may be dependent on factors like experience and different specializations within criminal defense.
