PAYMENT PLANS AND OPTIONS
When it comes to hiring a criminal defense lawyer in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania, cost can be a limiting factor. Our firm has taken on cases for those who earn too much to qualify for a public defender, but don't have much leftover when bills are paid. Many - if not most - Pittsburgh criminal defense attorneys demand to be paid in full up front.
At the Zuckerman Law Firm, we believe strongly in providing high-quality legal representation for a reasonable price. While we make no promises regarding your eligibility for a payment plan, we have worked with clients on certain types of cases on payment plans, where a percentage of the fees are due up front and the remaining balance to be paid over a set period of time.
We accept cash and checks, along with Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. To determine if you qualify for a payment plan, please contact the Zuckerman Law Firm right away at 412-447-5580 for a free consultation.
Note: The Zuckerman Law Firm makes no promises or guarantees regarding the firm’s willingness to accept cases on payment plans or arrangements. Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis, including, but not limited to the following factors: your employment status, the phase of prosecution, the scheduled date of your next court appearance, the severity of the charges, your ability to pay the retainer over a proposed period of time, the ability to have payments processed automatically or according to a set schedule, and the likelihood of the matter proceeding to trial in the future.
We DO NOT accept payment plans on the following types of matters:
All cases where the person is charged with Robbery, Aggravated Assault, and sexual assault crimes
All motions, including bail and detainer motions.
Probation violation hearings
Any case that is past the Formal Arraignment phase
