Walworth County Lawyer Andrew Walter
When you’re charged with a crime in or around Walworth County, you need a Walworth County lawyer with knowledge and experience in criminal defense, a Walworth County lawyer who knows the local prosecuting attorneys, police, and judges. I focus entirely on criminal defense law. In other words, 100% of my cases are criminal defense, criminal appeals, DUI, and traffic offenses. Other lawyers call themselves criminal defense lawyers but then they also have other practice areas. There are very few Walworth County lawyers who put all of their focus into criminal defense.

Walworth County Attorney Fees
We start every case with a free consultation. Before I can estimate the cost to serve as your Walworth County Lawyer, I need to know about your DUI, criminal, appellate, or traffic case. I also need to know your goals and priorities before I can estimate how many hours your case will entail. This consultation can be either at my Elkhorn, Wisconsin law office or by phone. At the end of that consultation, I will tell you how much of a deposit we will need for attorney fees, which is called an advanced fee or retainer. I will also give you an estimate of total attorney fees and costs. If you decide to hire another Walworth County lawyer at that point you will owe me nothing. We accept nearly all forms of payment and we offer payment plans. We provide written fee agreements for all of our clients.

How to Choose a Walworth County Lawyer
Have an actual conversation with whatever Walworth County lawyer you are considering. Does the lawyer sound like someone who knows the law? Does the lawyer seem to understand local practices and procedures? Is this an experienced Walworth County criminal defense lawyer? Does the lawyer have experience dealing with the Walworth County District Attorney or other prosecuting attorney? Do you feel comfortable talking to this lawyer? Does the lawyer return your calls or emails promptly? You can only answer these questions if the lawyer is willing to discuss your case with you BEFORE you pay any attorney fees. Don't just hire a lawyer who throws out the cheapest price or who gives you an estimate before hearing about your case.
