We understand you want the best legal representation possible, but very few people have budgeted for the financial shock of an arrest, having to secure bail, and then hire a lawyer. So if you have never hired a criminal defense attorney before, you may be concerned about what to expect in legal fees.
At Delgado & Romanik, PLLC, we understand what a difficult time this may be for you and your loved ones and how terrified you may be of the uncertain future. That is why we are available 24/7 to help with emergencies. Further, we can usually schedule you for a prompt conference in person or over the phone at one of our three office locations: Daytona Beach, DeLand, and St. Augustine.

It can be very difficult to know how to pick the right attorney. At Delgado & Romanik, PLLC, we believe meeting with our potential clients is the best way to get to know each other and help decide if we are going to be the right fit for each other.
During our consultation, we will discuss the specifics of your case and provide you with a fee quote. In the vast majority of our criminal cases, we work on a single flat fee for our legal services; costs are always invoiced separately. There is no additional charge for phone calls, meetings, court room appearances or motion practice.
Since so few cases go to trial, we do usually charge a separate fee for trial. Legal fees in a criminal case are paid when we begin working for you, although we do not always require the balance to be paid in full when we begin representation. Everything we agree on will be turned into a detailed contract explaining exactly what work we will be doing, what you can expect, and what is expected of you.
There is a bewildering assortment of lawyers out there and you will be inundated with brochures, letters, and advertisements. Our team of dedicated trial lawyers, with over 110 years and over 300 jury trials combined experience, are committed to our clients and to obtaining the best results for them.
Our guiding philosophy is that simple: we want to be the best and provide the best service possible. At Delgado & Romanik, we understand that expenses are always a concern and there are always lawyers who will charge a lower fee. However, we do not "compete" with such lawyers. Instead, we work with clients who want our services to find a payment schedule that works for us both. We believe in our clients are our brand ambassadors, and we are proud of the referrals we get from former clients.
If you, or a loved one, are in need of legal services, call us now to see what we can do for you. You may be amazed at what a difference that phone call can make in your peace of mind and sense of well-being.
If you have not yet posted bond for a loved one, consider calling us first to see if we can attend first appearances or help arrange for a lower bond. This will help preserve your financial resources for the trying period ahead.
