It seems like most criminal defense attorneys ask for a large fee to represent someone regardless of how much time and effort is put into the case. As a prosecutor, Ms. Ashworth always believed this was not fair. First of all, every case is different and requires a different amount of time and effort. Second, clients should know exactly what they are getting for their money.
Because of these beliefs, Ms. Ashworth handles criminal cases on an hourly-fee basis. Addtionally, she provides you with a detailed estimate of the fees and costs tailored to your specific case. Every month you will receive a full accounting of all the work done in your case. Consequently, you always know what is happening in your case and where your money is going. And, even better, you only pay for the work that is actually done on your case. As a result, your fee could be a lot less than the flat fee charged by other lawyers if your case is resolved without going to trial.
