Interviewer: It makes sense that an attorney, such as you, would probably charge less than that. Of course, again it depends on the case, but if you’re certain to lose about $5,000 if you plead guilty, so why not spend thousands less and get professional council? Especially when it may be possible not to incur most of those other fines and fees. It only makes sense to hire an attorney for that reason alone financially.
Carl: I’d agree with that, yes.
