Former Prosecutors Asserting Your Rights

Clarissa started her career as a criminal prosecutor at the Nueces County District Attorney’s Office. Prior to this experience, she interned at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas and had multiple high-ranking judicial internships all over Texas. During that time, she handled thousands of cases ranging from DWIs to murders.

Her background in criminal law cases includes serving as an assistant district attorney for eight years and handling misdemeanors and felony cases. She now uses this experience to build a solid defense for her clients, knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecutor’s office.

Does Clarissa Fernandez Pratt, Attorney at Law, offer payment plans?

We understand that legal fees can be a significant financial burden for our clients. To help make legal representation more accessible, we offer payment plans.

A payment plan is an arrangement where the client pays the attorney a certain amount of money at regular intervals, such as weekly or monthly, until the legal fees are paid in full. The terms of the payment plan, such as the amount of the payments and the duration of the plan, will depend on the attorney’s policies and the specific circumstances of the case.

If you are interested in setting up a payment plan with us, it’s important to discuss this option with one of our attorneys during your initial consultation. Be upfront about your financial situation and your ability to pay legal fees, and ask us about payment plans or other options for flexible payment arrangements.

Keep in mind that not all attorneys will offer payment plans, and we require a retainer fee or deposit upfront before starting work on your case. Make sure you fully understand the terms of any payment plan before agreeing to it and consider getting the agreement in writing.

Overall, a payment plan can be a good option for clients who need legal representation but cannot afford to pay the full legal fees upfront. By discussing your financial situation with an attorney and exploring payment plan options, you can work with a qualified attorney to protect your legal rights and interests.

What Is The Process Of Hiring A Lawyer?

  1. Identify the type of attorney you need: Determine the area of law your case falls under, such as criminal defense, family law, or personal injury, and look for attorneys who focus in that particular area.
  2. Research potential attorneys: Look for attorneys who have experience in your specific legal issue and have a good reputation in the legal community. You can search online for attorney directories, read reviews, and ask for recommendations from friends or family members who may have hired an attorney before.
  3. Schedule a consultation: Contact the attorney’s office and schedule an initial consultation. Many attorneys offer free consultations, but some may charge a fee. During the consultation, you can discuss the specifics of your case and determine if the attorney is a good fit for you.
  4. Discuss fees: Ask the attorney about their fees, including hourly rates, contingency fees, and any other costs associated with your case. Make sure you understand how the attorney will bill you and what services are included in the fees.
  5. Review the retainer agreement: If you decide to hire the attorney, you will be asked to sign a retainer agreement, which outlines the terms of your representation, including fees, services provided, and the scope of representation.
  6. Provide necessary information: Your attorney will need specific information related to your case, such as documents, witness statements, and other evidence, to build a strong case on your behalf.
  7. Work with your attorney: Once you hire an attorney, work closely with them to build a strong case and achieve the best possible outcome. Keep them informed of any updates or changes to your situation, and follow their advice and guidance throughout the legal process.
