Mr. Cross usually charges a flat fee for his services which are competitive and affordable when compared to most attorneys' fees. But significantly, Mr. Cross does not charge an additional fee if you choose to go to trial. He believes strongly that you should not avoid trial for the simple reason that you can't afford it. Many attorneys will either charge an arm and a leg for trial knowing that the client will do anything to get the case dismissed, or they use a high fee to talk the client into NOT going to trial. Mr. Cross eliminates these games by charging one flat fee, and allowing YOU to decide whether to take your case to trial after Mr. Cross discusses the pros and cons of doing so based on the evidence. As a criminal trial practitioner, jury trials happen to be one of the more enjoyable aspects of Mr. Cross's practice, so he will encourage you to try your case if the evidence can support an acquittal.
