Most criminal lawyers in Southern Illinois charge what is called a “flat fee” for criminal cases. The “flat fee” is different than an hourly rate. A flat fee is the total cost for representation. There is no hourly billing, and you pay the flat fee and no more. For less serious crimes, Cory Easton sets a flat fee for the initial retainer.  If there is no hearing or trial, the client owes no more. If there is a hearing or trial, which would include more work and time, Cory Easton charges an additional flat fee. The fees are clearly stated in the contract that the client reviews and signs.  For more complicated and higher-level crimes, such as first-degree murder or a sexual assault case, Cory Easton may require a retainer and charge an hourly fee.
