What is the Fee for our Service:

The first question most clients ask is how much is it going to cost to represent me in my case. The simple answer to this question is it depends on four different factors:

  • The facts of your case
  • The results that you want
  • The defense that you need
  • The attorney from our office that you choose

We cannot offer an inexpensive price without sacrificing the quality of the result. We are the lawyer a client will look for when they seek THE BEST REPRESENTATION and the BEST RESULT.  The Best representation does not come cheap because it requires the ability to do what is needed to find the proper solution to your problem TO WIN.  If you are seeking, the best representation possible for your charge we are here for you.  If you are looking for the lowest price you will need to go elsewhere.  But just because our fees are typically higher than most lawyers in the area, does not mean that Attorney Aalsberg is the most expensive either (typical prices in NY can range up to $2,500.00 per hour) our fees range from $450.00 for an associated per diem attorney to $899.00 per hour for Attorney Aalsberg. But just like any other profession you get the quality you pay for.  We offer a premium service for those interested in the best result, so unfortunately our price will be in the premium range.  We will not lower our fee because, it will require us to cut corners and your result will suffer.   We will not do this. Getting you the best result is our number 1 priority.  *However, we do offer SET FEES FOR MANY CASES, these set fees can save our typical client from hundreds of dollars on a traffic ticket, to several thousands of dollars on a criminal charge with the typical savings being between 10% to 25% off what would normally be our hourly charge to complete a case if you paid us on an hourly basis.  If we determine that we can help you, you will get this fee quote when you come for your first meeting/consultation with the lawyer.

Just like we don't cut corners on our fees.  We don't cut corners on our consultations either.  We offer only an in office consultation for most matters other than basic traffic tickets.  Why?  Because In the State of New Jersey, the attorney client privilege generally does not necessarily apply to conversations with the attorney over the phone or zoom prior to hiring the lawyer.  In fact the government can and does monitor many basic phone and internet conversations and having one with a lawyer is no exception. It is easier and takes our attorney less time to just speak to you on the phone, but it may mean that later the lawyer may not be able to use the best defense for your case. Only an in person conversation prior to paying/retaining the attorney is guaranteed to be confidential.

If your conversation is not confidential the information you tell an attorney could be be used against you in court, and you could lose your case. Thus, because we care more about your case rather than just screening you to see if you have the money to hire our firm we only offer an in office consultation.  Most consultations are free but you can call us to confirm.  Again, anything said over the phone or over the Internet to a lawyer could be used against you.  The first responsibility of a lawyer should be to protect you, not to see if you have the money to hire him. This private consultation will make sure we have the best chance of winning your case by keeping all information confidential and private. A good lawyer should never ask you questions about your case over the phone prior to being paid/retained. If a lawyer does ask you questions about your case or asks what happened, obviously he cares only about your money and whether you have enough to hire him and not about winning.  We care about you not our time as an in person consultation will take longer.  But winning is not just about your wallet it is about getting you the best result for your case and that is what our Firm puts at our highest priority.

Reasonable Fees For Premium Quality Representation:

As with any service, you get what you pay for. Depending on your case’s facts, your prior record, and the results you want, the price will vary from firm to firm. However, the cheapest lawyer is typically not the best lawyer. The key in any legal case is to win. If you fail, any money spent was wasted. Unlike a car or a watch, you cannot simply “return” your attorney. If you’re sitting in jail for a year or losing your driver’s license for six months, did you save money by hiring a cheaper lawyer? Would it have been worth the extra money to hire the best lawyer you could have found? If the answer to this question is yes, then don’t pick the cheapest or closest lawyer. Choose the best lawyer with the most experience.

By law in New Jersey, an attorney must charge a reasonable fee. Generally, for an experienced lawyer, the fees will be similar between firms and attorneys of the same caliber/quality. Remember Attorney Aalsberg has been ranked as one of America’s Top Lawyers and holds endorsements from over 225 other lawyers nationwide.

A Criminal, DWI, or Traffic Ticket Lawyer, when quoting you a fee, will look at thefacts of your case, your prior record, the possible evidence against you (example: was a video made of the event), and the results you want. Based on the above factors,a lawyer will quote you a reasonable fee. In our office, we generally offer you two prices. One price for Attorney Aalsberg if he is available and one for his associate/per diem lawyers. Typically, the fee for Attorney Aalsberg will be about 30 to 60% more because he is ranked one of the Top Ten Lawyers by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys and one of the Top 25 Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers.

Loss of Your Job:

Today many jobs require 3 background checks: a criminal record background check, a motor vehicle history check, and a credit report check. Licensed professionals such as: teachers, truck drivers, medical and financial professionals are subject to background checks even while employed. Your conviction may mean the difference between being employed or unemployed. Thus, whether you are a truck driver with a traffic ticket or a nurse, financial planner or a teacher with a criminal charge, the outcome of your case may be the same: unemployed. Don’t let this happen to you, get the best defense: Get Not Guilty.
