If you or a loved one are facing criminal charges your highest priority should be to select an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Glenn Swiatek Only Practices Criminal Defense
Ideally, you should select an attorney that only handles post conviction and criminal defense. Just as you would select a doctor who is a cardiologist when you have a heart problem, you should hire an attorney that only practices criminal law when you are about to be, or have been arrested. Glenn Swiatek only handles criminal defense. He has the specific relevant experience to handle your criminal legal matters because that’s all he does – criminal defense and post conviction relief.
Assurance of Trial Preparation
Many criminal cases are plea bargained or settled out of court. Attorneys know this and many law firms will agree to represent you but will never prepare for a potential trial. Glenn Swiatek only handles a select amount of cases and prepares each case for trial. When prosecutors know that your attorney is fully prepared to go to trial, you’ll be more likely to get a favorable plea bargain or even have your charges dismissed entirely. Glenn Swiatek always prepares for trial and he charges a reasonable fee for his work emphasizing quality over quantity.
Obtain the Fees in Writing
The costs of your case will be thoroughly explained to you in your free consultation and provided in writing. Each case is different and involves different amounts of time, preparation, and costs. You will receive a quote for a flat fee after your consultation with no hidden costs. Glenn Swiatek will only charge you additionally for third party costs which are billed to the firm, such as private investigation or court reporting. In criminal defense and post conviction relief, you get what you pay for. Find a balance between the quality of your lawyer and the fees they charge. Glenn Swiatek operates on a fixed price basis (including trial), and openly provides his fee structure. He does so during his free consultation, at which time he will fully disclose – in writing – all possible costs and fees associated with your case.
