I can help you. I am a former federal and State prosecutor and now do criminal defense including appeals. I have handled approximatley 50 appeals in my career. I have done appeals in the 1st, 2d, 3d Appellate Divisions and the 2d Circuit. I will work with you on a payment plan. Please feel free to check out my web site and contact me. My Areas of Practice page has an appeals section on the left that details some of my appellate wins, including a recent criminal case.
There are many factors to consider when deciding to hire a lawyer. Unfortunately, and in many cases, the financial issue of hiring an attorney is the first thing most people are concerned about.
Might I suggest that you contact your local Bar Association and see if they have a Lawyer Referral Service? Of course, the question of whether or not a lawyer will accept a monthly payment plan can only be answered by the lawyer you contact about your case.
