You Must Make an Informed Decision
In considering the costs of obtaining legal representation, you must balance the quality of the legal representation that you are seeking and your personal economic situation. In some cases, the court may appoint a public defender to represent you if you cannot afford to hire private criminal defense attorney. While this option saves you money that you do not have to spend on retaining a criminal defense attorney, the problem with retaining a public defender is that they tend to have overwhelming caseloads which prevents them from dedicating time to your case. Ultimately, this results in you having very limited access to the public defender’s free legal services and you becoming the only advocate in your case. Whereas, if you retain a private criminal defense attorney, they will be able to devote time to the particular issues in your case and provide you with a full personalized legal representation at a cost. At Monder Law Group, we do not want you to make the mistake of settling for free limited legal representation for fear of your finances. We want to provide you with the opportunity to make an informed decision by giving you a free consultation. From the moment that you step into our office, we are prepared to offer our legal expertise to review your charges, discuss cost- effective strategies, and answer any questions that you might have. Together we will go over the written retainer agreement and explain the terms and costs of our representation. At Monder Law Group, we understand the struggle behind putting together the funds for your defense and will make sure that at all times you get the legal services that you worked so hard to pay for!

It is important that you know that your presence is not required for a misdemeanor arraignment, Attorney Vik Monder may ask Judge Cano to appear on your behalf. However, if you have been charged by the District Attorney’s Office with a felony, Judge Rodriguez will require you to be physically present at your felony arraignment in Department 12.
